Review by Peter Kipling
Interesting and good fun. A new thing to try at home now I've been taught how simple the process is. Tasty too.

Pie lovers, it’s your time to shine. Get hands-on with this exclusive Pork Pie Making Workshop at Brockleby’s Bakery. One of only six producers who can make the geographically protected Melton Mowbray Pork Pie, Brockleby’s offers a friendly, authentic setting for you to create this world-famous delight.
You’ll make your own pork pie from scratch, from pastry making, mincing pork, hand-raising the pastry, baking, and the all-important jellying. You’ll finish with two pies to take home, one cooked and ready to eat and one to bake at a later date. Round off this fantastic experience with a delicious Ploughman’s Lunch or a high tea.
On arrival you’ll be greeted by the friendly staff. You’ll learn about the history of Brockleby’s and the world-famous Mowbray Pork Pie, as well as enjoying a tour of the bakery. Once you’ve got the low-down on the goings-on there, you’ll get hands-on, creating your own pie from scratch. You’ll finish with two pies to take home, one cooked and ready to eat, one uncooked and ready to bake at a later date – perfect for your next dinner party!
You’ll have no doubt worked up an appetite by the end, so you can tuck into a delicious Ploughman’s lunch or a high tea to round off your experience in style.
