A small family-run business has reached new heights in the pie-making world after winning the Pie and Pastry Class at the Great British Food Awards.

Nice Pie, based at Gorse Farm in Old Dalby, was crowned the winner of the savoury pies and pastries category at the prestigious awards, thanks to its delicious lamb pie and mint pie.

All of the produce entries were initially short-listed based on the producer’s commitment to provenance and local sourcing, then taste tested by a panel of some of the top names in British food, including chefs Rosemary Shrager and Richard Corrigan, plus Great British Bake Off winners Edd Kimber and John Whaite.

Katharine Walmsley, who established Nice Pie in August 2013, along with her husband Phil and daughter, Aimi is delighted to have won the award. Stating that she was ‘extremely proud’.

This award is just one of a grand total of 42 awards which the company has won to date. Including 11 awards which were won at the 2016 British Pie Awards.
