Following last years insightful experience at the British Pie Awards, the sisterhood were delighted to be invited back to judge again at this years event.
How does it work?
Pie judgement is split into six categories – totalling 100 points. Appearance, Bake, Pastry Thickness, Pastry Taste and Texture, Amount of Filling, and Filling Taste and Texture are tested, with point being deducted for… The top three pies are given… as well as scored over 70 being categorised as a bronze, silver or gold standard of pie.
This year we judged Chicken and Vegetable, Steak and Ale and Lamb. Find out how we got on by watching the video below
