Stop Press: British Pie Awards 2018 ...    Leesons win 1st Prize for their Melton Mowbray Pork Pies ...

At Leeson Family Butchers we pride ourselves on selling what we strongly believe to be some of the best, tastiest, mouth-watering flavoursome food to be produced in the UK.

From our gold medal, prize winning Melton Mowbray Pork Pies created by using deliciously flavoured jelly, mouth-watering pastry and succulent. All of our pork pies are made to modern standards using recipes that have passed down through generations of pie makers. Our other meat products also have recipes that are known only to the Leeson Family!

The Melton Mowbray Pork Pie is named after a town in near Oakham. Melton pies became popular among fox hunters in the area during the late nineteenth century.

In light of the premium price of the Melton Mowbray pie, the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association applied for protection under the European "Protected designation of origin" laws as a result of the increasing production of Melton Mowbray-style pies by large commercial companies in factories far from Melton Mowbray, and recipes that deviated from the original uncured pork form.

EU Protection was granted on the 4th of April 2008, with the result that only pies made within a designated zone around Melton Mowbray, and using the traditional recipe including uncured pork, are allowed to carry the Melton Mowbray name on their packaging and products, as we at Leeson Family Butchers have.
