Pork pies

My grandparents took over this bake house after Edward Adcock retired. They were the original Melton Mowbray pork pie makers (once removed) Their skills kept alive the recipe and recently the Melton Mowbray pork pie has been granted  European Protected status just like Champagne! But for how long can this status be maintained now we have opted for Brexit.
