Pie competition to put Newport on the culinary map

Written on April 21, 2021

As one of his last official acts as mayor of Newport, Peter Scott is hoping to unearth a pie, savoury or sweet, that could be designated the ‘Newport Pie’.

His competition is now open and any ingredients can be considered – Mr Scott suggested a ‘three fishes’ pie would be appropriate given the town’s historic crest.

He said: “I am launching a competition to find a pie that can be marketed as the Newport Pie by pubs, restaurants and shops in the area.

“Will you help us put Newport on the culinary map?”

The winner of the competition will receive a trophy created by Newport Engravers, and publicity for their pie.
