A Newmarket pub is asking local foodies to come up with a recipe for a new pie dish to be featured on a specials menu later this year.
The Bull in the High Street, which is owned by Greene King, is calling for aspiring pie-connoisseurs to submit their culinary creations online including details of their perfect pastry, meat, vegetable and sauce combination.
The overall winner will bag themselves a £500 prize and the title of Greene King’s first official Great British ‘Pastriot’. Two runners up will each receive a £100 cash prize.
Colette McKernan, general manager at the Bull, said: “We decided to mark the launch of our Best of British festival by launching a competition to find a new twist on one of Britain’s best dishes, the humble pie.
“We are hoping to find pies that are both creative and delicious in equal measure; whether it’s an old favourite, a personal speciality or a classic pie with a modern twist. We can’t wait to see what the Newmarket community come up with.”
Participants have until Friday April 22 to enter their pie designs on the Bull Facebook page, www.facebook.com/pages/Bull-Newmarket/291333134262121
