A mate introduced me to traditional Yorkshire sporting nutrition: a growler at about half way. It's like the pork pies you get everywhere else, only it's concentrated.
Meat pie thread.
There is a little bakers pie shop in Morecambe - Thurwells - that does the most amazing pies. Not at all fancy or posh but the pies a superb.
The Potato and Meat has a bisuity crumble to its shortcrust pastry that can only be achieved by some hideously unhealthy lard or dripping type fat. This is the perfect winter warmer of a pie and teaches the impatient a painful lesson with a scolded toungue - they are pipping hot! The filling is a good balance of meat and diced potato.
The Steak and Kidney also has amazing shortcrust pastry but it is more flakey than the Potatoe and Meat. Rich and meaty inside...mmm
Made my first pie for tea last night - steak, parmesan and mushroom. Actually did made the filling on saturday night and left it to cool before assembling the pie yesterday. Got to say it was very lovely and shall def be doing again.... even the kids liked it!
Hired a canal boat for a trip on the Llangollen Canal, dureing which we stopped off at Ellesmere in Shropshire, and on the recommendation of the guide book sampled the pork pies at Vermeulens. Lovely. In fact, being at the helm of a canal boat, driving through Shropshire, vermueln's pie and cup of tea to hand - bliss.
non of the pies mentioned are meat pies. they are just different flavour pies or puddings. this is a meat pie...
