Drewton’s Farm Shop’s Steak Pies awarded two gold stars by Guild of Fine Foods

Published: 29/08/2013

Just weeks after its sausage rolls were named the best in the country, Drewton's Farm Shop has been awarded two gold stars for its steak pies in the national Great Taste Awards 2013, which means that they're officially rated 'outstanding'!

The annual award scheme is organised by the Guild of Fine Foods and aims to recognise the very finest food and drink on offer in the UK.

Drewton's Farm Shop's steak pie was one of 9,700 food and drink entries from all over the UK but one of only 645 to receive a coveted two gold star rating. This endorsement from the Guild of Fine Foods can now be used by the farm shop on its product labelling.

The homemade steak pies are baked fresh each day by Head Baker Kath and her team. As part of the Great Taste Awards, Kath had to travel all the way to Dorset to take part in a fiercely-contested cook-off.

Katie Taylor, proprietor of Drewton's Farm Shop, said: "We're thrilled that Kath managed to perform under pressure and produced a steak pie for the judges that was up to her usual high standard. This was just the latest in a series of awards for our steak pies – just a few weeks ago they also won a Silver award in the 'England's Best Steak Pie' competition run by EBLEX, the organisation for beef and lamb levy payers in England.

"This latest news - on top of the top national award for our sausage rolls – speaks volumes about the quality of our homemade baked goods. Both the sausage rolls and steak pies are baked in-house using meat that has been carefully chosen from Yorkshire farms and prepared in-house by our team of butchers. We're so proud of Kath and her team, and our butchers!"

Also this week, Drewton's Farm Shop was informed that it has been shortlisted for Yorkshire Life magazine's 'Food Destination of the Year Award' for 2013. The awards ceremony will be held on Monday 7 October.
