- What shall we talk about today? PIES!
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.Posted 7 years ago
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.
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 therePosted 7 years ago
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 essentialPosted 7 years ago
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..Posted 7 years ago
We got very drunk.
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 🙁Posted 7 years agohoneybadgerxSubscriber
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.Posted 7 years ago
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
is simply not, under any circumstances, a pie. It’s quiche, and as we all knowPosted 7 years ago
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’ 👿Posted 7 years ago
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 🙂Posted 7 years ago
