British Pie Awards: Vegan pie crowned champion

British Pie Awards: Vegan pie crowned champion

According to BBC a vegan pie has risen to claim top spot in a competition held at the home of the pork pie.

The curried sweet potato and butternut squash treat was picked as Supreme Champion at the British Pie Awards held in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire.

A new vegan category was introduced this year and attracted 68 entries in total.

Organisers said the winner, from Jon Thorner’s butchers in Somerset, was “well deserving of the accolade”.

Mr Thorner said his firm had been making meat pies for more than a decade before branching out “in an effort to make our pies more accessible”.

“We’re so thrilled at the level of success our vegan pie has had,” he said.

The top crust beat 886 entries from pie makers, bakers and butchers from all over the country to scoop the overall title too.

Head judge Colin Woodhead commended the winner for its moist and well-balanced filling and added: “There are a number of challenges to making a good vegan pie and this has cracked it.

“The pastry was exceptional with a crispness that complemented the filling.”

Other new categories this year included a specialist fish and chip shop pie and best young pie maker.

Each entry is judged on presentation, consistency and flavour and must be baked with “a filling wholly encased in pastry”.

The awards, which marked their 10th anniversary this year, are hosted by the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association.

Chairman Matthew O’Callaghan said the standard of pies has “significantly” improved since the first competition in 2009.

With categories now recognising gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian products to reflect the “evolving” tastes of the nation, he said the growth of the awards has helped showcase the continued popularity of the humble pie.

“We started off small with the idea to celebrate pies, because they’re one of the great contributions to the world from British cuisine,” he said.

“The pie is for everybody.”

The Easiest, Simplest Vegan Bread Ever!

The Easiest, Simplest Vegan Bread Ever!

Ingredients
  • 265 ml Lukewarm Water
  • 7 g Active Dry Yeast
  • 1.5 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 360-400 g All Purpose Flour
  • 2 tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 2 tbsp Chopped Parsley
  • 2 tbsp Sesame Seeds
  • 2 tbsp Flaked Almonds
Instructions
  1. Mix the water, sugar and yeast together in a large bowl and leave for 5 minutes until the water begins to gently bubble.
  2. Next, add the olive oil, flour and salt and mix until the dough comes together. Start with the lower amount of flour, and add more if your dough is too sticky. You should have a dough that comes together in one piece and isn’t sticky to touch.
  3. Knead the dough for 10 minutes, then place in an oiled bowl and cover with cling film. Allow to rise for 60 minutes in a warm place, or until doubled in size.
  4. After 60 minutes, punch all the air out of the dough and roll into ping pong ball sized pieces. Very slightly dampen the outside of each bowl by wetting your fingers in a bowl of water, then roll each ball in a different topping and place them into a non stick bundt tin.
  5. Once all the balls are in the bundt tin, cover with cling film and allow to rise for a further 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180°C.
  6. Bake the bread for 30-35 minutes, then allow to cool in the tin for 20 minutes, before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Best served fresh the day it is made.
Recipe Notes

You can store the bread in a sealed container for 2-3 days, but it will be best served fresh on the day you make it.
