The announcement this year came with the addition of a new category — the best pie available for people to buy at a Scottish football club.
Additionally bakers and butchers are also invited to enter their best sausage rolls, bridies, speciality savouries and Scottish football pie or savoury. The 14-year-old competition aims to highlight butchers and bakers as creators of artisan pastry products.
According to the Scotch Pie Club, butchers and bakers from across Scotland will have the opportunity to become recognised as producing the highest-quality savoury products around the globe, with awards given for the best entries. The winner of the Scotch Pie category will also be announced as the World Champion.
Competition founder Alan Stuart said: “We are delighted to be launching the 14th World Scotch Pie Championships. We have a huge number of hard-working butchers and bakers who deserve recognition for delivering great products day in and day out. I am looking forward to sampling for myself some of the best products on the market today and to seeing who the judges pick out as having produced something that I know will be world-class.”
Those wishing to compete must submit their entry forms by 19 November. Products should be delivered to the Carnegie Conference Centre, Halbeath Road, Dunfermline, KY11 8DY between 9am and 11.30am on Tuesday 27 November 2012 for judging.
