Last week we celebrated British Pie Week, and there’s nothing us brits love more than a wholesome pie!
British Pie Week has seen a growing number of pie fanatics searching for their perfect pie, and research has revealed that 75% of the nation enjoy at least one pie a month! So it’s not surprising that these filled pastry wonders have secured a national food week all to themselves.
If you have no patience for pastry making, why not treat yourself to a tasty shortcut at Sutcliffe’s of Skipton. The multi award-winning retail butchers in Skipton provides locally sourced and produced meat of excellent quality and value for money. Whether it’s a savoury pie or dessert pie, Sutcliffe’s family size pies are great excuse to get the family together for some good grub guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face, without breaking the bank.
This melt in the mouth pie is one of Britain’s favourite pies. Sutcliffe’s steak pie is handmade with local tender steak in a full of flavour gravy topped with fluffy puff pastry. Best served with hand cut chips and lashings of gravy, whatever floats your pie boat.
This traditional pork pie is made to share! The rich hot water pastry is filled with the finest cuts of local pork, seasoned with salt and pepper and baked to crisp for pure pie indulgence. Typically served with mushy pies and mint sauce, a true british delicacy.
For those with a sweet tooth, Sutcliffe’s fruit pie is sure to satisfy. This classic fruity dessert is filled with delicious seasonal fruit and topped with homemade shortcrust pastry. Best served warm straight out of the oven with plenty of custard, cream or ice cream (or all three!).
Stanforths Butchers was established pre war by Jim Stanforth who quickly became well known in the town for the delicious pork pies he was making. After moving to the Millbridge site that the shop still stands on today over 80 years ago, the business continued to grow and the pies became more sought after both by the people of Skipton and the many visitors to the town.
Stanforths have kept to the same recipe and traditional methods for years, ensuring consistently top quality products.
