Pubs, hotels and restaurants across England are being challenged by the English Beef and Lamb Executive (EBLEX) to show just how well they can put together the ingredients for one of the nation's favourite meals.

The winning chef - who has to have made the pie from scratch using fresh ingredients - will win the title "National Steak Pie Champion 2006" and a prize worth £10,000.

Among the qualities judges will be concentrating on will be the succulence of the filling, the quality and provenance of the meat and the texture and flavour of the pastry.

They will also be looking for innovative ingredients to boost the flavour of the national favourite.
