A cafe owner from the Leicestershire town famous for its pork pies has come up with a new twist on the famous delicacy - pork pie soup.
Nigel Keep, who runs a coffee shop in Melton Mowbray, came up with the idea while lying in bed one night. The dish has already proved a big hit with his customers as a "winter warmer" in the run-up to Christmas.
A cafe owner in Melton Mowbray has made a soup from pork pies.
The soup uses two medium sized pies from Melton Mowbray Pork Pies, the home of the pork pie, and it has been selling fast.
