Mudoch Allan of Peterhead took silver in the football and pie savoury category for its Pittodrie Pie which is served up at Aberdeen Football Club – so that’s at least some silverware for the Dons this year!
Meanwhile, Pie Aroma of Strichen picked up three awards.
It received gold for its macaroni pie and silver medals for its sausage roll and cheeseburger pie, in the hot savoury category.
And finally the Hame Bakery of Peterhead took a bronze medal for its steak pie in the steak pie (hand held) category.
