To mark British Pie Week (4-10 March) Yorkshire pie lovers are being treated to a special tasting at the Hunters of Helmsley deli.
On Thursday 7 March, The Original Baker, based in Malton, will be setting up outside the renowned Helmsley deli, and offering samples of some of its best-selling bakes.
On offer will be a selection of pastries including the Chicken Curry Pie, with seared chunks of chicken slow cooked in a special blend of herbs and spices; Camembert & Root Veg Pie, with tender root vegetables roasted in exotic spices, in a spicy tomato sauce with chunks of creamy, oozy Camembert cheese; and a traditional, comforting Slow Cooked Mince Beef & Onion Pie with an all butter shortcrust pastry base and light puff pasty lid.
Christine Garnett, who owns Hunters of Helmsley with husband Chris, said: “Everyone loves a good pie – and The Original Baker makes some of the best pies in the country. The all butter pastry combined with high quality fillings, made with fresh ingredients cooked on site – they’re real hand-made artisan pastries and they taste delicious. Our customers come flocking for them, and so it seemed like a great idea to give everyone a taste to celebrate British Pie Week. We’re lucky to have such talented bakers on our doorstep and it’s only right we shout about it!”
Hunters will also be running a special offer, selling four Original Baker pies for £10.60, a 10% discount on the usual price. For more information about Hunters of Helmsley go to www.huntersofhelmsley.com
