World Pork Pie Champions!
Once again we've won the 'World Pork Pie Championships' and Bolster Moor Farm Shop's Pork Pies have been judged to still be the absolute best!
The Pork Pie Appreciation Society competition organiser, Peter Charnley, had said he was hoping for an upset after more than a decade of Huddersfield domination in pork pie wins. So a decision was made to have women only judge the tasting, with all tasting done 'blind'. However, even with the changes we're delighted to have still been crowned winners once again.
The event was hosted at The Old Bridge Inn in Ripponden and raised over £3,000 for Elland’s Overgate Hospice.
Our expert pie maker Brian Gill said: “It’s brilliant to win. We’ve won it a few times but it’s nice to win it again.”
The secret ingredient of course is the best quality ingredients and a big helping of pie-making expertise. Try them next time you visit the Farm Shop or Coffee Shop, as it's the same delicious award-winning recipe that you can try for yourself!
