DT Laws Crowned Champion Piemaker at LPPAS Awards Night

Many thanks to everyone involved in making last night’s awards a great success.

Firstly thanks to the 5 top class butchers who happily donated their LPPAS Gold Rated pies:

D.T Law Butcher

Heys Family Butchers

Grimes food hall Of Cleveleys

Higginsons – Butchers & Pie Makers

Walmsleys Butchers

Secondly, thanks to to all attendees, our hosts & staff at the Black Bull, our sponsor – Cardwells Estate Agent, and everyone that took part in the raffle and auction. Collectively we raised over £600 last night for Macmillan Cancer Support, taking our total for the year above £1600!

The most frequently heard comment on the pies was that all 5 were superb. There has to be a winner though, and on the night DT Laws of Haslingden were the clear winners and become our inaugural Supreme Champion 👏👏👏

LPPAS Awards Night

The inaugural LPPAS Awards night will be the culmination of our year-long search to find the best pork pies in Lancashire. Our 5 top-rated pie-makers of 2017 will be presented with certificates in recognition of their outstanding produce. They will also go head to head in a public tasting to determine our overall champion. Due to limited capacity, entry will be by ticket only.  Tickets are £10 with all proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Support. On the night you will be able to sample all of the pies and help us to find the champion. We guarantee that  top class pies will be on offer. Musical entertainment will be provided by Andy Stones once the champion has been crowned.

Next Meeting – Monday 6th November

The pies have now been ordered for the next meeting of the LPPAS will commence at 9:30PM on Monday 6th November at The Black Bull. This time the pies will be from Atherton and East Lancashire with  promise of a third mystery pie. The last meeting saw a new leader and Monday promises to be another excellent night for pie lovers.

Next Meeting – Monday 4th September

The pies have now been ordered for the next meeting of the LPPAS will commence at 9:30PM on Monday 4th September at The Black Bull. This time the pies will be from West Lancashire with pies from St Helens & Poulton-le-Fylde. The last meeting was our best attended so far and Monday promises to be another excellent night for pie lovers.

Next LPPAS Meeting – Monday 3rd July

Following on from crowning the best home made pies in Lancashire in The Great Lancashire Bake Off we are back to our normal quest to find the best pork pies on sale in Lancashire and so the pies have now been selected for our next meeting  which will commence at 9:30PM on Monday 3rd July at The Black Bull. Walmesley’s have been on top for a long time now. Can we find a pie to replace them at the top?

As usual all are welcome.

 

Next LPPAS Meeting – Monday 5th June

The pies have now been ordered for the next meeting of the LPPAS which will commence at 9:30PM on Monday 5th June at The Black Bull. Local pride was at stake last  time with top class pies from Bolton & Bury going head-to-head. Bolton came out on top last time , but we will be casting our net wider again for the June meeting in our search for the best pork pie in Lancashire. All are welcome from Bolton, Bury and beyond.

June promises to be an excellent month for pie lovers with this meeting followed by the Pie Off on the 24th. The tap room was overflowing for our last meeting  so, if you are planning to sample the pies, please let Steve know or drop us an email at lancsporkpies@gmail.com

 

Beer, Music & Pies! The Great Lancashire Pork Pie Bake Off

We are excited to provide more details for the Great Lancashire Pork Pie Bake Off. Firstly, we will shortly be announcing details of a new beer that is being brewed specially for the night. A barrel of the beer will be donated by the brewer free of charge. As with all proceeds from the Pie Off all proceeds will be going to Macmillan Cancer Support. Watch this space for further details soon. Along with the beer, musical entertainment will be provided on the night too. As certain members of the LPPAS aren’t noted for their temperance the decision has been made to bring the Pie Off forward by 24 hours to the evening of Saturday 24th June.
