Pork Pie Evening experience

Pork Pie Evening experience


10 Nottingham Street,
Melton Mowbray,
LE13 1NW


Dickinson & Morris host "Pork Pie Experiences" where 'ready made' groups of people (e.g. clubs, societies, colleagues etc) discover the heritage & fascinating link between Stilton Cheese, Pork Pies & Hunting. The group is then skilfully guided through each person making their very own Melton Mowbray pork pie which, after baking, are then available to collect the following day, after mid-day, from Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe.

Available Tuesday - Thursday an Experience takes place from 5.30pm - after the Shop has closed. An Experience usually lasts for about 1.5 hours and costs £12.00 per person (with a minimum of 18, maximum of 35 people in the Group). This includes a tasting session with Q&As and the opportunity to make purchases from the Shop. Finger buffets are also available (for post pie making) and cost a further £10.00 per person.

During normal opening hours demonstrations of the traditional craft of hand raising a pork pie are available any time between 9.30am to 2.45pm for either a single person or groups of up to 15 people. For larger groups we split the numbers and run successive demonstrations - each lasting 15 minutes. These take place in a demonstration area within Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe, include sampling a range of pies (as well as Melton Hunt Cake) and cost £2/person.
