Leicestershire-based Dickinson & Morris has launched a Valentine Melton Mowbray Pork Pie in time for the season of love.

The handcrafted Dickinson & Morris Valentine Melton Mowbray Pork Pie weighs in at 800g and features two overlapping pastry hearts on top. Each pie also includes a hand-written message in a Valentine’s card from the baker.

Made with 100% British pork and encased in a classic hot water crust pastry, the Valentine’s pork pies can be ordered online from the Dickinson & Morris website or bought at the famous 166-year-old bakery, Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe in Melton Mowbray.

The pies cost £9 (plus delivery to UK mainland), and orders must be made by midday on Friday 10 February in order to be delivered in time for Valentine’s Day.

Individual, six-pack minis and large family pies are also available in the major supermarkets, priced from £1.30.
