Judging 500 pies, pasties, sausage rolls, bridies and savouries is a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. So it will be good to hear the results of all that tasting when the winners of the Scotch Pie Club Awards 2013 were announced on 9 January in Dunfermline.
More than 100 butchers and bakers entered the competition which is supported by Scottish Bakers and the Scottish Federation of Meat Traders. The most fiercely contested category was for Scotch Pies, with JB Christie Ltd of Airdrie crowned World Champion. First runner-up was the Little Bakery of Dumfries and second runner-up, Denholm Bakers of Wishaw.
