A vegan pie has been crowned supreme champion at the British Pie Awards.

This is the first time an animal-free creation has scooped top honors in the event’s 11 year history.

The big winner was a curried sweet potato and butternut squash pie made by butcher Jon Thorner’s Ltd. It beat off almost 900 other entries. It was entered into the new vegan category alongside almost 70 others, then shortlisted for the supreme champion award.

Vegan is the supreme champion

“This year’s supreme champion was outstanding and well deserving of the accolade,” Matthew O’Callaghan, chairman of the British Pie Awards, said.

“From its very appearance on the judging tray, you knew it was going to do well and it didn’t disappoint when it was opened and tasted.

“This pie isn’t just for vegans, it’s a pie for everybody. With this award we can truly say that veganism is now entering the mainstream of British food.”
