Win a half-day voucher for two at the Humble Pie cookery school in Hawes!

The Humble Pie Cookery Kitchen is run Elizabeth Fawcett. Although Elizabeth was born near Doncaster, she moved to Wensleydale in the mid-1970s when she was nine years old and it is her happy place.

Elizabeth said: “Humble Pie was started as a delicatessen and fresh food takeaway in 1999 in the village of Askrigg, in Upper Wensleydale. Before it was fashionable, I championed our quality local meats and dairy and used local ingredients wherever possible. It was a successful and busy shop and I thoroughly enjoyed the five years that we were there.”

In 2017, the opportunity arose to lease the original Humble Pie premises and on 1 April of that year, Elizabeth and her youngest daughter reopened as Humble Pie Fawcett & Guy and enjoyed over two years of mayhem as the shop went from strength to strength! Times have changed and people are more inclined to go out for coffee and lunch, so the shop was much more of a bakery and café than the original deli.

Elizabeth said: “We could not have imagined how busy the shop would be! Our ovens were always full as we produced scones, quiches, cakes and ready meals to serve both our loyal local customers and visitors. It was a wonderful time, although somewhat hectic and totally exhausting. Our traditional farmhouse style of baking and cooking, using quality ingredients, was just what customers were wanting and we loved it.”

Elizabeth opened the cookery school at the end of February this year, just a few weeks before lockdown, which has had a profound effect.

Elizabeth said: “It has been a very challenging year, but everything is looking really positive for the new year. I am really excited about what we will be doing, the take-up on the courses over Christmas has been great and it’s left me feeling very positive as we move into the new year.”

Elizabeth is offering a prize of a half-day voucher for two at the Humble Pie cookery school in Hawes, worth £130, for use in 2021.

The voucher covers a half-day at the cookery school and the winner can choose from a number of classes, ranging from: baking, classic British pies, curry dishes, getting to grips with gluten-free, classes making puddings, vegetarian dishes and so many more wonderful options which can be found on the Humble Pie Cookery Kitchen website.

There is so much to do in and around of Hawes, as Elizabeth has kindly recommended some accommodation and shops on her website.
