What’s the big pie-dea?

We love a good pie. Puff pastry or short crust, sweet or savoury, potato topped, macaroni bottomed, crumbled or latticed, there’s frankly not a pie under the sun that doesn’t get the Badger’s noses twitching and taste buds tingling.  That’s why we have decided to launch a competition to find the perfect Badger pie, and we are inviting fellow pie lovers everywhere (yes, that’s you sir, the man munching the pork pie) to submit your own recipe, which will then be judged at an awards ceremony at Hall & Woodhouse, Bath. 

Each of the finalists will win a Badger Countryside Sett gift box and £50 worth of Hall & Woodhouse vouchers. The overall winner, the Supreme Pie champion, will receive a prize package that includes having their pie professionally produced and launched as a ‘special’ in selected Hall & Woodhouse public houses next autumn; a two-night beach break for two at The Lulworth Cove Inn, including breakfast and dinner on both nights and exclusive sampling of the winning pie; a VIP brewery tour with Head Brewer, Toby Heasman with lunch at our Visitor Centre; a Badger Countryside Sett gift box; and £200 travel and subsistence.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? So get those thinking caps on, channel your inner Nigella and start creating.  The pie’s the limit!
