The Great North Pie Co partners with Yu Alderley Edge for British Pie Week

Jessica Ward | 5th March 2019

This year, The Great North Pie Co has partnered up with Yu Alderley Edge to create a special edition pie, available exclusively throughout British Pie Week.


Putting a unique Chinese spin on the gourmet pies, a unique filling has been created by Victor Yu, the executive chef behind Yu Alderley Edge and winner of the best restaurant in the 2018 Golden Chopstick Awards.

For a limited time only, customers of The Great North Pie Co can expect to find a honey coated satay chicken with the legendary Charlie Yu’s chip shop curry recipe, sold for £10.

Speaking about the partnership, Neil Broomfield, Director of Great North Pie Co says “We’re just playing about with the chippy tea, I love puddings, chips and curry sauce from the chippy so its hopefully just a good version of that.  The chicken is the same spicing and marinade for their Chicken wrapped in Bamboo, I’ve always thought that would work well in a pie.  We made a pho pie a few years ago with Luke Nguyen which was really nice, I think it’ll work really well.”

The pies will be available from Thursday at Great North Pie Co in Market House on Altrincham Market.
