Pie Club History

Pork pies from a Golcar butchers feature in a television documentary on Britain's best-loved foods.  

BBC crews filmed Stuart Booth's James Street shop for Britain's Favourite Picnic Foods.

Researchers approached the Pork Pie Appreciation Society, based in Ripponden, after pies were said to be the nation's 15th favourite food. And society secretary Peter Charnley named the Golcar shop as one of the top pork pie-makers.

"Our pies are made from a secret recipe handed down from my late mum, and dad who used to run the shop," said Mr Booth.

He added that only himself, cousin Nicholas and pie-maker Janet Barker knew the Ingredients for the thousands of pies made at the shop each week.

Film crews spent several hours In Golcar before Mr Charnley took the pies to Ripponden for filming there.

The BBC2 documentary will be screened in January, with television chef Antony Worrail Thompson.
