Wooleys of Arran will find out how they have fared when the World Championship Scotch Pie Awards are announced next week.

Television personality and media presenter Carol Smillie will announce the winner of the best pie at the 21st World Championship Scotch Pie Awards at the Westerwood Hotel, Cumbernauld, on Tuesday January 14.

As previously reported in the Banner, Wooleys entered pies in five categories – Scotch pie, steak pie, haggis and cheesy mash, quiche lorraine and vegetarian garlic and mushroom quiche – and were shortlisted for the awards after a panel of 60 judges assessed the pies based on appearance, quality, consistency and taste.

Owner Matt Keir and his team, including pie maker Edyta Dylewska, will be attending the award ceremony.

The awards are hosted by Scottish Bakers and is the only competition of its kind which seeks to recognise excellence in the preparation of a perfect pie. It aims to recognise winning products and producers to reward excellence and raise quality and innovation across the industry.
