The following are the results of the 2022 British Pie Awards
Supreme Champion is ‘Gluten Free Mooless Pie’ by Pieminister of Bristol
(Ingredients: Gluten Free Pastry, Jackfruit ‘Steak’, Craft Ale, Black Pepper)
Sponsored by Melton Mowbray Building Society
Dr Matthew O’Callaghan OBE: Chairman of the British Pie Awards said: “This was a superb pie, it looked good, had a nice even golden bake. The pastry was crunchy complimented by the moist filling which had ‘bite’ and the balance of flavours in the pie was just right. Up to now Gluten Free Pies were always compared unfavourably with other pies. With this pie Gluten Free Pies are now equal to any other pie. Being Vegetarian and Gluten Free, Pieminister’s ‘Mooless Pie’ is an ‘Everybody’s Pie’ be they vegetarian or meat eater, Gluten tolerant or intolerant. Serve this at a meal and almost everyone’s a winner! Congratulations Pieminister!”

The programme follows the fortunes of three pie makers from Blackburn, Derbyshire and Bognor Regis as they prepare to make and send their pies to the British Pie Awards in Melton Mowbray. Butchers vs Bakers, Meat vs Vegan – competing against almost 1,000 other pies but who will win the coveted Supreme Champion trophy and be crowned “Pie of Pies”. The result is quite a suprise and to some – a bit controversial.
