Sit down and pull up a pie…

From time to time things happen which rock the normally peaceful world of a pie maker on her heels.  Things like applying for a bursary which would mean that we get to spend five days in the NEC at Birmingham being part of the BBC Winter Good Food Show. And then winning the bursary.


The Good Food Show will be nearly the first event we have done outside of Norfolk. We have attended a Great Taste Award market near Westminster and two extraordinary garden parties held by Soho House, but apart from that it’s all been on home turf. And at five days it’ll be the longest event we’ve been involved in. And, well, it’s the NEC and the BBC isn’t it? Huge!

But the Good Food Show organisers have faith in us, we’ll have a lot of friends and support there and back at home, and I think we are ready for the next big challenge. It’s very exciting, and as over 70 great producers applied for the bursary it’s a great honour to have been one of the few chosen.

So we thought a bit of a blog to record and celebrate the next few weeks and beyond would not be out of order. Come join me on the big adventure.

    That’s great news Sarah! We really wish tou well and expect to see pies coming to Somerset as you spread your wings – lots of outlets here eventhough they are often well hidden in the depths of rural England. x
