Held at the Rural Capital of Food in Melton Mowbray, this year’s British Pie Awards saw a whopping 884 pies entered from 160 professional pie bakers, butchers and chefs from around the country.

After an extensive judging process on each pie’s appearance, taste and skills by 110 experts, the pies on parade across all 23 classes were crowned on Friday 6th March.

About the Awards, organiser Dr Matthew O’Callaghan said: “For the past 12 years, we’ve judged well over 9,000 pies since the Awards were first founded in 2009. During that time the quality and range of pies submitted have increased significantly; a tribute to the craft and skills of the British piemaker.

“It goes without saying that the British Pie Awards would not be what they are today without our many judges, sponsors, volunteers and – of course – all the piemakers. Congratulations to all who took home awards and we look forward to seeing you next year.”
