Victory for Pie Maker Print
Pie Club History

Thousands of pork pie eaters agree that Andrew Jones makes the best. The Brighouse butcher won the title of champion pie maker in a competition which attracted 51 contestants to the Old Bridge Inn, Ripponden.

Mr Jones took over the former Brayshaw's shop in Bethel Street, in August, and also runs a shop in Marsh, Huddersfield.

He has a team of eight bakers and also sells thousands of pies weekly through other outlets.

And after 24 years in the trade he said a traditional recipe using good quality ingredients is the key to success.

He has won the title three times and is also the national Cornish pasty champion.

"Nice, tasty meat, a crusty pie, and well glazed appearance, will keep people buying pies from independent butchers and away from super-markets," he said.
