Judges have embarked on the appetising task of selecting the winners in the World Championship Scotch Pie Awards in Dunfermline, Scotland.
The contest sets out to find the best scotch pie, along with football pies, macaroni pies, steak pies, sausage rolls, bridies, apple pies and five savoury products, including; haggis items, vegetarian options, and hot and cold savouries.
Had to go and look up some of those. Macaroni pie is, well, it’s Mac ‘N’ Cheese (a strong cheddar) in an open pie case. Hmm. Scotch pie is apparently – classically – minced mutton. The football pie is the same but minced beef. And the bridie is a minced beef in something like a pastie shape.
Weird what foreigners will eat, eh?
