Just as we launch our website, we are pleased to be announcing that we have received a further award this summer – a Gold Star from the Great Taste Awards – for our ‘Chorlton Clanger’. The Clanger (a traditional handmade pasty containing minced free-range pork, onion, sage & peas and encased in crisp, handmade rough puff pastry) has become well-known and loved around South Manchester and has already won a Silver Award this year from the British Pie Awards. What the Great Taste Award judges said:
“The pasty looks nice and rustic..the flavour of the filling is excellent! The judges enjoyed the fact that there was no filler. Excellent ingredients.”
We look forward to submitting more entries to the Great Taste Awards in 2012.
