A film crew was recently in Birmingham to film yet another 'Bake Off' competition likely to be televised on ITV in early 2014. Filming took place at award winning Itihaus in the Jewellery Quarter and featured a French bakery, Maison Mayci, from Kings Heath who had reached the semi final of a national competition. Their idea was to fuse their pastry skills with Birmingham's curry heritage to create a balti porkpie. The session was a precursor to their final product and they received advice from the owner and chef of the restaurant and Andy Munro.

Andy said,

"As you would expect the pastry was second to none and the pork used was from a top quality local Tamworth breed. However, we hopefully gave them some  good advice on introducing more colour and spice using red chillies, paprika and turmeric to name a few ingredients."
