We can confirm that the 2014 British Pie Awards will be held on the 30th of April 2014 in St. Mary’s Church, Melton Mowbray.
This year the Speciality Pie class has been named “A Pie Fit For A Hero” and introduced by the organisers in part to help commemorate WW1 but mainly in recognition of the quality of food prepared by bakers and chefs working in the British Armed Forces and associated catering establishments who the organisers are hoping will be encouraged to enter this category in this year’s event. The category is also open to entries from any baker who supplies this sector on a commercial basis and is exempt from the rule of entry that the pies must be commercially available for the calendar year following the awards.
Matthew explains “Since it is the 100th commemorative year of WW1 we felt it an appropriate touch to introduce a category that could acknowledge the caterers who support our armed forces and associated personnel. We are hoping the category attracts some new entrants and really provide us with an insight into their skills as well as some food for thought.”
