A butcher’s has proved it has got the recipe for success after its pork pie triumphed at a regional awards show.
Leeson’s Butchers, of High Street, Oakham, won the 2lb hand raised pork pie category at the Melton Mowbray Christmas Fatstock Show.
It also came third in the 1lb hand-raised category at the event.
Steve Leeson, who owns the shop with his wife Andrea, was delighted with the award.
He said: “I was really pleased we won.
“Making our pies in small quantities and getting them consistent is the key. I’ve spent the past 14 years perfecting the secret recipe.
“The award now takes pride of place in our shop window.”
