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.
