Melton Mowbray pork pies

Recommended Posts

The great Melton Mowbray pork pie debate is currently raging in the UK:


"Melton Mowbray pork pie makers and No 10 clash over Johnson claim


The humble Melton Mowbray pork pie is at the centre of an unlikely political dispute about British exports.

Boris Johnson had said pork pies are exported to Thailand and Iceland, but cannot be to the US due to red tape.

However the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association said the pies were not even exported to Thailand and Iceland." (https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-49470831)


Reading this inspired me to post as I've always had a great affection for this UK delicacy, which was local to me in the UK and has Proustian childhood associations; I even worked at the Melton Mowbray factory making the things for a brief period in my youth. It is, however, the one personal epicurean delight I've never found here. Just wondering if anyone has ever come across them.

Yes,Tops have them,but you will need to take a mortgage out to buy 

them,really silly prices,EVEN with the crash of the quid.
