Almost 500 products were entered into the 11 different categories and they were expertly judged on appearance, quality, consitency and taste.

“The World Championship Scotch Pie Awards is the only competition of its kind recognising excellence in the preparation of a perfect pie” said Alasdair Smith, chief executive of Scottish Bakers. “The competition is now a regular fixture on the calendar as butchers and bakers throughout the land vie for pie supremacy and the boost to their business that always comes with such a sought after title.”

Scotch Pie Win

Dales Butchers Award Winning Pies

We were happy to see that we made it onto the winners podium again, last week.

We’ve been pretty successful winning awards with our delicious, handmade pies over the years and it was our Scotch and Haggis Pie that landed us a prize this time, scooping us the winners title in the ‘Speciality Hot Eating Pie’ category.

The award was presented at the English Winter Fair, which took place at the Staffordshire County Showground.

UK Sausage Week

Celebrating the Great British Banger!

As you’d expect, we’re always happy to join in the celebrations for UK Sausage Week here at Dales Butchers. We’ll have 20+ sausage varieties on offer throughout UK Sausage Week, including several gluten free options and a good number of our previous award-winners. 

Organised by the team over at Meat Management Magazine, UK Sausage Week is an opportunity for the whole of the meat industry to get behind one of the nation’s favourite culinary delights and to celebrate the fabulous versatility of the ever popular Great British banger.

At Dales Butchers, we’re adding to the UK Sausage Week celebrations by donating 25p for each kg of sausages we sell throughout the week to each of these two very worthy causes – the North West Air Ambulance charity and to See and Know (a local, volunteer led playgroup in Kirkby Lonsdale)

Dales Butchers - UK Sausage Week Awards

UK Sausage Week Awards

Although we’ve previously been fairly successful when it comes to receiving awards for our top quality bangers, I’m afraid we didn’t have any winners this year. However, we did get a couple of runner up postions for our Chicken, Black Pudding & Thyme Sausage, and also for our Lamb and Apricot Sausage. In addition to these we ralso received a ‘highly commended’ for our traditional pork sausage. We’ll try harder next year!

In the meantime, you don’t need to wait for another UK Sausage Week to come back around. As always, our sausage making will be continuing unabated and we invite you to come in and give something new a try.

Here’s a selection of what varieties you might expect to find on offer from our repertoir of over 50 varieties: Harissa Lamb – Beef & Marmite – Merguez – Pork & Caramel – Traditional Cumberland – Westmorland – Pork, Apple & Sage – Pork & Stilton – Pork & Leek – Spanish Style Chorizo – Mexicano Pork – Chicken, Lemon & Coriander – Turkey & Cranberry – Beef & Wholegrain Mustard – Pork & Mr Vikkis Chilli Jam – Chill, Duck & Pork – Old Dubliner – New Yorker – Pork, Honey & Mustard

We’re currently celebrating another nice award win here at Dales Butchers!

Organised by the Q Guild of Butchers, the Smithfield Awards took place in London on the 7th of February and they recognise and reward some of the country’s best butchers. An independent panel of food and meat industry experts blind judge products in 18 categories, such as: Pies, Sausages, Ready-Meals, Gluten-Free Products, and more. Nigel Barden, whom many of you will know from Radio 2’s Simon Mayo programme, announced the awards and we were really pleased to come away with 7 Gold Awards in total.
