This week is British Pie week (yes even a week for that)! We just found the definitive guide to pies and have shared this courtesy of Pie Rate: The world's premiere pie resource, with almost 600 pie reviews since 2009. The home of #BritishPieWeek
Originally set up by a pastry maker as a way to sell more of their pastry (as a clever marketing idea), it is now Britain’s main celebration of pie! Pubs, restaurants, pie shops across the country and more have used British Pie Week to run competitions, pie specials and the like (so why not ask what your local pie-selling pub is doing to celebrate pie week?), while supermarkets sometimes use the week to discount their pie ranges. ( TIP: pies freeze easily, so if you do grab a deal on pies this week - you can freeze them for a few months - although we prefer to bake our own, it's much easier than you think!)
The British Pie Awards have even moved their awards to this week, to coincide with British Pie Week. However it’s also an excuse for pie lovers like the Pierateers to do various pie stunts and for the average pie fan to excuse their pie eating for a week! (“Well it’s Pie Week, so I have to have a pie!!!”).
We have got all excited and already been searching through some recipes and have found these:
Pie week lasts for a whole week, so we will definitely be adding to the list above as the week progresses (and we get a chance to bake more fresh pies!). Please share your favourite pie recipes and any 'hot tips' you may have e.g. how to make the perfect pie crust. Happy baking and have a great Pie Week!
