The accolade was presented at a ceremony in Melton Mowbray following rigorous judging by a panel of renowned foodies including TV chefs Phil Vickery and Rosemary Shrager.
And to celebrate their win, they’ve named a star in the sky “Peter’s Pies”.
James Osgood, Marketing Director at Peter’s: “We are delighted that our Premier Steak and Kidney pie has been named the best in its class at the British Pie Awards and wanted to celebrate its win in true Peter’s style. We are proud to announce that there is now officially a star in the sky named “Peter’s Pies”. I think it must be the first real pie in the sky”.
The “Peter’s Pies” star is located in the Northern Hemisphere in the constellation of Hercules, which appropriately means champion or hero.
James continued: “The Steak and Kidney pie is one of the most important categories to win because it is a traditional pie filling that has been eaten by the British public for many centuries. It is also the pie favoured by most pubs and restaurants because it is one of the most popular meat fillings among British people. This proves that our pies are most definitely out of this World!”
“Here at Peter’s we spend a great deal of time perfecting our recipes to ensure that we create exciting, tasty and satisfying products for the British people so to receive such a prestigious award from our peers is extremely rewarding.”
Organisers of the annual awards describe the pie as ‘one of the icons of British cuisine”. The awards are run annually to:
•Celebrate the heritage of the British Pie
•To protect and promote regional specialities
•To recognise the craft of bakers, butchers and other producers
•To support British produce
