  • What shall we talk about today? PIES!
  • I’m torn between the study about brown fat on the BBC site from yesterday and the BF%’s of different Olympic athletes.

    Fat and the amount found in Pies.

    lets just talk about pies. Yesterday I had a chicken, ham asparagus pie from Westmorland services farm shop. It was possibly the best pie Ive ever eaten

    Should I start a separate pie-based thread, or am I ok to mention it on this one?

    Nope, we can do pies today. I had a cheese slice on Friday.. does that count?

    It was a good un. So greasy the bag it came in went see through. Had to wash it down with a tub of B&J Apple Crumble ice cream.

    a bit left of field, but connected, and certainly as relevant as a cheese slice, I had an M&S Raspberry Pie at the weekend which was very very good.
    as I am working from home over the Olympic period, I may try a local pie from one of the many pie purveyors of Crouch End.

    Sausage rolls for me …you need to make your own pies as a vegan from natural ingredients…i am sure TSY approves….perhaps not in terms of taste.

    OOOOOOOOOOOH HOW EXCITING!!!! I’ve just looked on their website, and on the first page is a picture of the very pie. Big chunks of chicken and chunky fresh ham with ‘spargus on top

    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. There really is a ridiculous variety of awesome looking pies there

    Any of you Northern lot been to this http://www.porkpieclub.com/

    I’m tempted to do a ‘fetch’ from down here and pay them a visit.

    I live in Nidderdale. Weatherhead’s (bottom of Pateley high street) Pork and Sweet Chili. All other Pies are false idols.

    Binners – Those look a lot like the pies from the Artisan bakery in Staveley Mill Yard (by Wheelbase).

    Best pies I’ve ever eaten.

    I think some of you need to read the rules regarding Pie Appreciation.

    You can’t just say it’s the best… you need to comment on the quality of the pastry, the subtlety of the seasoning and the slimeyness of the jelly.

    i had a bridie at the weekend – which is sort of pie’ish
    the epic saddlers special forfar bridie. lightly spiced mince and steak. light crumbly pastry. simply the best.

    Kirrimuir-born JM Barrie, author of Peter Pan, knew about bridies, giving them a place in his novel Sentimental Tommy, when Tommy’s homesick mother recalls it as a ‘sublime kind of pie’ that is offered to visitors at grander houses on Hogmanay.

    Made to the traditional method, bridies have a high meat content, which makes them more expensive than many other styles of pie. In the heart of Aberdeen Angus country, people reckon lots of meat is essential

    Binners, where the pastry on top? That a tart, not a pie ffs!

    Grrrr and that a pasty, take it to your own thread! 😯

    They look good. Sort of like a pasty but bigger… where are they from?

    GOOD THREAD & good choice there..

    Saturday eve I had a very tasty Blue Cheese and Celery Pie at the Belgian House (Oly Belgian Cycling open house in That London) of which I have to say scored a very healthy: 9/10 for appearance, 9/10 for taste, 8/10 for crumblyness, 8/10 for time it took to eat. Then beer with the head knocked off..
    We got very drunk.

    TSY – Forfar,
    z1ppy – why? cause pies can’t compete against the awesomeness of the mighty bridie?

    cause simply “it’s not a pie”, admittedly it’s better than the tart pictured above it.. it does look awesome. 😀

    chakaping – its very likely they are indeed one of the same.

    Binners, where the pastry on top? That a tart, not a pie ffs!

    The asparagus was on top of the pastry and encased in a lovely jelly. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm. The pastry was on the very edge of falling apart, and crumbled satisfyingly as you bit into it. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I’m bloody starving now. Anything is going to be an anticlimax after that though 🙁

    The only thing making my trip from Edinburgh to the Midlands every weekend bearable is Westmorland Services pies. Mmm pies….

    I’m a particular fan of a slice of the Wensleydale one (pork on the bottom, whole grain mustard, then Wensleydale, then Chicken), though had a nice pork and stilton one topped with caramelised onion chutney the other week.

    pies for eyes, pies for eyes! never mind back to work… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIW9sL-Yf6Q

    cause simply “it’s not a pie”

    <ahem> see my post, according to JM Barrie, not just a pie, but a

    sublime kind of pie

    Still, I concede that, although the ingredients are there, there may be some debate regarding the general non-pie shape. But anything that includes this word

    asparagus

    is simply not, under any circumstances, a pie. It’s quiche, and as we all know

    Yesterday the little lady made the Hairy Bikers’ lamb, feta, aubergine and filo pastry pie. It was an excellent pie.

    IHN – I’m going to wait until BBSB gives his verdict on whether or not that’s a pie…

    Well, it was predominantly meat based and entirely encased in pastry (albeit it funny flaky greek pastry), so, in my eyes, that’s a pie.

    And I’m picky about my pies; don’t get me started on those ‘pies’ you get in pubs that are actually a casserole with a ‘puff pastry lid’ 👿

    It was most definitely not a quiche! Anyway: I had an Aberdeen Angus pie with it, just to make sure. And that was definitely a pie.

    oh good lord no and for the following obvious reasons

    feta, aubergine and filo pastry

    And I’m picky about my pies; don’t get me started on those ‘pies’ you get in pubs that are actually a casserole with a ‘puff pastry lid’

    Binners is now forgiven, if there pastry under the asparagus 😉
    Nowt wrong with asparagus or a good quiche.

    “Binners eats qui-iche, Binners eats qui-iche, Binners eats qui-che….”

    🙂

    So is it ok to eat a quiche if you put a pastry topping on it?

    oh good lord no, and for the following obvious reasons

    It was a pie. It was from a book of pie recipes, from a pair of men who, lets be honest, are no stranger to a pie or three. So, with the greatest of respect, you’re wrong.

    So is it ok to eat a quiche if you put a pastry topping on it?

    Of course it is, because then it’s a cheese and onion pie.

    We’re a contrary lot, we pie people 🙂

    Yes because technically its no longer a quiche. I really like my mums bacon, Tasty Lancs and Broadbean quiche, but its not a pie, is it?! 😛

    I’ve never eaten a quiche… I just have bacon and egg open pies on the odd occasion.

    If youu scrape all the crap out, fill it with dead animal, preferably mechanically recovered, and ideally about 50/50 meat/grease content THEN cover it with pastry, you’d nearly be there

    Had a half-time pie yesterday.
    They taste good.

    So, with the greatest of respect, you’re wrong.

    With the greatest of respect, i live quite near TJ so am protected by his cape of always rightness no matter how wrong I am.

    So there.
