Stephen McAllister, who owns and runs The Kandy Bar with his wife Rona and their dedicated team said “To win again, I cannot believe it! To have been given the ultimate accolade today and once again to be able to call our pie the WORLD CHAMPION as judged by a panel of experts is just fantastic. This award is proof that The Kandy Bar team is the best in the land. I am really looking forward to the year ahead and to selling more of our winning pies than ever.”
“The competition, which has run for 17 years, aims to highlight that bakers and butchers create high quality artisan pastry products. Recognising the “great and the good” in this way rewards excellence and raises the bar in the industry” says head judge Ian Nelson who oversaw the judging process to ensure only the best pies were recognised and that only the best of the best was crowned world champion.
