Pub operator Wadworth crowned chef Jake McBridge – from the Avon Causeway (Christchurch) – the winner of its 2018 Annual Pie Competition.

Up against six other finalists, the panel of seven judges praised McBridge’s pork, chorizo and sunblush pie for its “variety of ingredients, depth of flavour and unique taste.”

His winning creation will now be sold in all Wadworth managed pubs from 5 March until stocks last, to coincide with National Pie Week (5-11 March).

He said: “I am thrilled that my pie has won and really proud that something I created has been judged as the best. I want to say thank you to all the customers at Avon Causeway that voted for it.”

The announcement comes just months after McBridge was awarded the silver prize for Wadworth’s Chef of the Year 2017, with head of managed houses, Rupert Bagnell, commenting: “A terrific diverse range of pies made the finals this year, with flavours from warm spice to superfoods, making the judging both incredibly close and difficult. Congratulations to all the finalists and especially Jake.”
