Butcher wins gold medals for pork pies

First published in Business news

AN EAST Yorkshire butcher struck gold three times at the BPEX (British Pork Executive) North East Roadshow in Harrogate.

David Mounfield, of award-winning butchers JA Mounfield & Son, in Bubwith, gained three gold medals for his pork pie, pork-and-chicken pie and chicken-and-ham pie, being scored 99/100 for his pork pie.

Last year, Mr Mounfield was named National Champion by BPEX for his one-pound traditional pork pie.

Newby Hall farm shop also won seven awards, including regional roadshow champion for its home-cured bacon and gammon. It won gold awards for its plain back bacon and horseshoe rasher, silver for its old English sausages, tomato-and-herb sausages and pork-and-tomato sausages and bronze for its streaky bacon.

Charlotte Atkinson, from Elite Meat Ltd in Harrogate, also won overall champion in her category for her caramelised onion pork paté.
