Pie maker makes plea for tasters

Holland's makes pies, puddings and pasties

A famous Lancashire pie maker is looking for hungry volunteers to join its tasting panel.

Holland's, which is based in Baxenden, wants a dedicated pie panel to help sample its pies, puddings and pasties and have a hand in creating new ones.

The firm's managing director, Neil Court-Johnston, wants to recruit 12 people to advise him on new takes on the meat and potato favourite.

He said he wanted to "reawaken the region's passion for pies".

Those selected will be invited to a series of specially arranged pie-tasting sessions to review every recipe and offer their opinions.

Holland's employs more than 400 people and is part of the chilled division of Northern Foods.

Anyone interested in joining the panel is urged to contact Northern Foods.
