“Wow, I have never seen so many fantastic looking pies in one place at one time” said Craig McPhie, President of Scottish Bakers which manages the competition on behalf of The World Championship Scotch Pie Awards. “This year’s competition is shaping up to be higher profile than ever before as we celebrate the peak of pie perfection.”
