153. A perfect taste of the countryside at the British Pie Awards

Every year, the British Pie Awards judges meet for one day in Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire to taste hundreds of pies in order to crown a supreme pie champion. The Plodcast's Maria Hodson was invited to be a judge in 2022 and in this episode she meets the judges, tastes the pies and discovers the long and rather marvellous history of what has now become a staple of British cuisine.

The Plodcast is the PPA Podcast of the Year. As ever, you can contact the Plodcast team at editor@countryfile.com with your thoughts.
