THE Scotch Pie Club has added a new category to the 14th World Scotch Pie Championship this year – the best pie available for supporters to buy at a Scottish football club.
Expected to be a hotly-contested category, the Scotch Pie Club has recognised the ever growing popularity of a warming and tasty pie as part of the match day experience for football fans the nation over.
The traditional hard crust of the pie makes it ideal for eating at outside events with no need for wrapping with the warming and spiced contents bring comfort to thousands of fans on cold winter days.
Entry forms are due in by 19th November and products should be delivered to Carnegie Conference Centre, Halbeath Road, Dunfermline, KY11 8DY between 9.00am and 11.30am on Tuesday 27th November 2012.
Bakers and butchers across Scotland will have the opportunity to become recognised as producing the highest quality savoury products around the globe with awards given to those producing the best products in each category. The winner of the Football Pie category will be declared as the BEST FOOTBALL PIE IN SCOTLAND.
The competition, which has run for 14 years, aims to highlight that bakers and butchers create high quality artisan pastry products. Recognising the ‘great and the good’ in this way rewards excellence and raises the bar in the industry.
Alan Stuart, competition founder, said: “It gives me great pleasure to be recognising the role the Football Pie plays in our sporting heritage in this way and I am excited to see the entries, may the best club win.”
The competition is supported by Scottish Bakers and the Scottish Federation of Meat Traders. Both trade associations actively support and promote bakers and butchers in Scotland by encouraging and sharing best practise.
