The Real Thai Pie Company comes to Southport

The Southport Food and Drink Festival will feature an Asian twist on a Lancashire favourite

The only company within the UK dedicated to making Thai Pies is coming to the Southport Food and Drink Festival.

The unique fusion of ‘east meets west’ is the brainchild of former builder Dean Haworth. He said his eureka moment came after enjoying a delicious Massaman curry, in Thailand, and thinking how great it would taste inside pastry.

Dean’s parents have owned a bakery in Darwen for more than 30 years, and he uses his father’s secret pastry recipe in every pie he makes. Every pie is ‘lovingly hand-made’

Thailand is a place that will forever be in Dean’s heart as it is where he met wife, Becky. They created The Real Thai Pie Company in 2012.

He said: “The building trade was in recession so I was working away a lot. Then the children came along and I wanted to be at home with the family.

“Becky and I decided to make our pie dream a reality, and that was it. The Real Thai Pie Company was born.”

The Real Thai Pie Company will be serving up chicken, beef and vegetarian pies, ranging from mild to very spicy; so there’s something for everyone.
