A NORTH Northumberland baker has returned from over the border with more awards, this time for its quiches.

Trotters Family Bakers, based in Seahouses, won a gold award as second runner-up for its quiche lorraine in the World Scotch Pie Championships.

The baker also came away from the event, which took place in Dunfermiline, Scotland, in November of last year, with a silver award for its broccoli and stilton quiche in the vegetarian section.

Trotters was one of only two English bakers or butchers to enter the contest, which is now in its 12th year.

Nathan Trotter said that they were very pleased to have won the awards.

“We have been entering for 10-odd years and the quiches always do well.”

Nathan is from the third generation of Trotters to work in the family business, following in father Graeme’s and grandfather John’s footsteps.

“As Graeme’s son, I’m trying to match my dad’s ambition and take the business forward,” he said.

“And it’s good for the customers to see us doing well, because they are always coming in and saying how good things are.

“The recipes are family ones from my granddad, so it’s keeping things the same.”

Trotters Family Bakers have stores in Alnwick, Amble, Seahouses and Wooler as well as Coldstream, Duns and Eyemouth.
