Ne­vis Bak­ery pies are ‘golden’

The Oban Times - - News -

FORT WIL­LIAM baker Archie Pater­son of Ne­vis Bak­ery has won gold at the re­gional fi­nal of this year’s Scot­tish Baker of the Year awards.

The High Street busi­ness won a re­gional gold award and a na­tional bronze for its steak pies.

Owner Mr Pater­son said: ‘We are ex­tremely pleased to be recog­nised as one of Scot­land’s best bak­ers.

‘We take our busi­ness very se­ri­ously and use tra­di­tional meth­ods and crafts­men’s skills to de­liver qual­ity ev­ery time. But we could not have come this far in the com­pe­ti­tion with­out the votes of all of our cus­tomers, thank you.’

Mr Pater­son, who was a chef in the Lochaber area be­fore set­ting up the bak­ery, told the Lochaber

Times, his steak pie recipe is one he has been work­ing with since his days in the kitchen. He said: ‘ We have been win­ning awards for our steak pies for the last 15 years, and we al­ways pick up prizes at this event.

‘The steak pies are a re­ally pop­u­lar prod­uct and we are pleased to have won.’

Mr Pater­son opened the bak­ery in 1981, with a shop on the High Street and a fac­tory in Cor­pach, where the award-win­ning pies and other de­li­cious treats are made.

Judge on ITV’s Bri­tain’s Best Bak­ery, Mich Turner MBE, pre­sented the team from Ne­vis Bak­ery with their award at a glit­ter­ing cer­e­mony in Glas­gow.

More than 11,000 cus­tomers from across Scot­land voted for their favourite bak­ery prod­ucts across eight cat­e­gories.
