Mince Pie Competition results
We are delighted to announce the results of the 2015 Mince Pie competition. After much deliberation, and tasting of the entries, the judges were delighted to announce that The Anchorage had won the coveted first place hamper. 2nd, 3rd and 4th places went to The Grange, Albemarle and The Hollies respectively. Speaking about The Anchorage's winning entry, one of the judges, Food Services manager Andy Cullum said, "The Anchorage took the top spot because all the judges felt that the texture of the pastry was perfectly light and fluffy and the filling was perfectly balanced with a hint of apples and oranges."
The criteria was simple, residents and staff had to come up with a recipe for the pies and these recipes were then judges to find the the four who made it to the second round. These finalists then had to put the theory into practice and create the pies and bring them to head office for judging.
With grateful thanks to catering partners Apetito who kindly supplied the hampers for the prizes.
