Drewton's throws down the gauntlet to pie lovers to mark British Pie Week

Published: 27/02/2012

Drewton's Farm Shop near South Cave is marking British Pie Week, which runs from March 5 to 11, by asking pie lovers to come up with suggestions for the perfect filling, sweet or savoury.

Whoever sends in the best filling suggestion will see their idea become a reality when the team in Drewton's in-house Baker department makes up the winning recipe for them to sample. Once the winning pie has been given the official seal of approval, it will goes on sale to customers.

All you have to do to enter is email your pie filling suggestions to info@drewtons.co.uk no later than Monday 12 March 2012, along with your name, address and telephone number.

Drewton's Farm Shop is renowned for its range of pies, all of which are freshly prepared in-house. In 2011, its Steak Pie won a Silver Award in the annual 'England's Best Steak Pie' competition. The Steak Pie is made with beef from local farms prepared by staff in Drewton's own in-house Butcher department. As with all of the products on sale in the Farm Shop, the emphasis is on using quality, locally-sourced ingredients; Drewton's supports a network of around 140 Yorkshire-based food producers, growers and suppliers.

Kath Brown, who runs the Baker department, said: "Everyone loves a good pie, it's comfort food at its best. We're looking for some really interesting and creative filling suggestions. We thought it would be a fun way to mark British Pie Week, which is a celebration of this tasty and versatile dish.

"We want to hear people's ideas for both sweet and savoury fillings and, although the suggestions can be as quirky as you like, you need to bear in mind that if you want to see your pie made up and on sale in the shop, it needs to have a tempting filling that other people will want to try."
