Satterthwaites Shuts Down Operations.

Who ate all the pies?

 

Shoppers in their dozens lining the streets for pork pies, potato cakes, a ribbon-tied box of meringues or fabled Bavarian slices (mouth-watering masterpieces of vanilla custard, jam, fondant and exquisite puff pastry) is something else again.

 

Such were the incongruous scenes set against the backdrop of a cool, sunny autumn day outside shops across north Liverpool at the weekend as the independent, family-run bakers Satterthwaites finally gave in to economic pressures, closing with the loss of 70 jobs.

 

My wife loved their cheese and onion pasties and the vanilla slices.

Whither the burgerpasty? Will we ever see their like again?

 

Shame on you Sefton, You had one good thing and you f***ing blew it

 

 

That should be it for them.

 

They're wools until they come up with ideas. They can all meet up at their town hall and work something out and send it down the merseyrail.

Tell you what Mark we're going to have to take turns on suicide watch for my Dad after this news.

 

I think he's coping alright. He was at the Albert Dock with us on Sunday and he was last seen arm in arm with a 20-something brunette being escorted past the Pump House in the direction of Liverpool One.

 

I suspect Portly's absence from Satterthwaites in recent months may well have been a contributing factor in their deminse, with the meat pie void in his fridge being filled with the healthier option of dressed crabs from Shrigley's, the fishmngers on Allerton Road. It may be time to start buying shares in local crab dressing companies.

 

On Satterthwaites; I suspect Mr. Wilson has been operating to a flawed business model for some time. Instead of trying to compete with the likes of Sayers and supermarket bakeries he should have played more on his superior artisan baked goods which were always a cut above the rest, tapping into the trend of regional farmers markets/food festivals and perhaps pushing to supply local pubs/other eateries with his pies etc. When things started to go t*** up I also suspect they went down the wrong recovery recovery route, surely there was an option to rationalise Satterthwaites operations and close down some of the shops further afield and concentrate on the flagship Crosby store? I suspect we'll never know but I hope we haven't seen the last of those pork pies.

Bset pork pie I ever tasted was from a butchers shop in a place called Wombwell, just outside Barnsley.

 

I used to head over there early on a Saturday morning and grab some warm pies just out of the oven, if we were lucky, I even managed to have some left by the time I got back to Penistone. They also did the best fresh pork scratchings.

 

My doctor would have a coronary if he thought I was getting back into that kind of food.

 

How about this for a wedding "cake"
