Chunk of Devon lands haul at Food and Drink Devon Awards

An Ottery business scooped 10 accolades for its savoury pies and bakes at the Food and Drink Devon Awards.

Chunk of Devon took home six Taste of Devon golds, three silvers and the illustrious platinum award for scoring 100 per cent from judges for its pork and scrumpy pasty. Owners Suzi Bryon-Edmond and her husband Simon attended a special ceremony at the Deer Park.

Of Chunk’s recipe for success, Suzi said: “It’s determination and keeping the passion and just keep going.”

Chunk claimed gold for its pork, apple and scrumpy sausage roll; pork and chorizo sausage roll; steak and ale pie; steak pasty; steak and blue pasty; and squealer pork pie.

The haul was an increase on last year’s six awards, but Suzi added that staff ‘never rest on their laurels’ and aimed to take on judges’ feedback to improve their products.

“We have a mantra that it’s tasty, special, natural - that’s how we want to come across both in and outside the business,” she said.
