1. Piglet Pie company Beef Brisket pie I had at Brighton was the most delicious thing I've eaten at a football ground. And that includes hospitality at Vicarage Road.
    Get them in now!

    Pies are one of the things I miss most about the UK. Steak and kidney, plain pork pie smothered in English mustard, mince pies, bramley apple pie....damn now I'm hungry.

    I agree. The fact that they didn't come in a tin foil tray made them easier to eat while juggling with a pint too. And, temperature wise, they were perfect - you need asbestos lips to bite into the pies served at most football grounds

    The British Council in Vilnius had this book in its collection. One Xmas after the flotsam and jetsam that made up the ex-pat teaching community were complaining about the food they missed I made a pork pie (pork, lard, trotters, pigs' ears & tails were readily available although the "mace" had to be imported) from scratch. It was a revelation to have this huge "traditionally decorated" pie (made in a 30cm cake tin) the consumption of which actually cleanly divided the ex-pat community along national lines: the Jocks, Taffs (and me) loved it (so much so I've never willingly eaten another shop bought pork pie again) whereas the English complained that "...it didn't taste like the shop bought ones..." - go figure.

    I've just had a look at their, presumably under construction, webs(h)ite - were your pies on sticks?
     
  6. Unfortunately no. In a paper bag.

    Which is another thing in their favour - no tin foil tray or plastic outer wrapper, just eco-friendly paper packaging. I feel a letter to Duxbury coming on...

    I don't tweet, but if I did, I'd certainly tweet the praises of Piglet Pies.

    I would guess lard is a vital ingredient, that's not available here, but I'm definitely going to look into making my own after reading BWood's account.

    Edit, neither are kidneys

    Interestingly*, I was told by the person in front of me, that the pies were something a bit special.

    I should have taken more notice, but I waited and had a doner wrap while walking home instead, which was okay.





    (*Not interesting at all, even to me)

    Equally "interestingly", when I commented to my sister as we entered the ground on Saturday that I could smell pies, she told me that Brighton's pies are renowned for being very good (such are the wild conversations we have at football matches these days). I took the view that "very good" was relative to the usual dross served at football grounds and had no regrets that I had already eaten and wouldn't be sampling one. But it seems I was wrong. The question is, are they better than Wigan's?

    I would hazard a guess that Wigan sells Holland's pies (as do Burnley, Bury and Accrington), which are not even close to being as good as Pieminster. Those are de rigueur for visits to Manchester.

    Interestingly................I've just remembered, it wasn't the pies I was told about, it was the burgers.

    Does anybody have the telephone number of a "good" literary agent? I think I've discovered the football version of "Bridget Jones's Diary".

    Sweet or savoury? If sweet, what about crumble?

    Aha.
    There's pudding which is generally foodstuff wrapped in a suet based pastry and there's pudding which is the generally sweet meal served after a savoury main course.

    Crumble is pudding in the 2nd sense of the word, it's definitely not a pie. Rhubarb apple and blackberry crumble is the best crumble. Mummymeister's crumble is the best crumble in the world ever.

    Here's a question. Is a pie still a pie if its cooked in a container and the pastry is only on the top?

    I opted for the lamb and mint which was also glorious !! I think they had seven or 8 choices and they were all decent from what I could see

    Piglet pies all round please

    It may well be; but the apple pie wouldn't have been when Mummyforza was alive, and even less so when Nanaforza was around. Ditto the crumble. Sadly, all a long time ago.

    Valid question, personally always feel cheated if the filling is just topped rather than fully encased, would also make trickier in stadium match day eating without cutlery and a resting spot.

    I wonder what defines a pie as a pie? Quite a fan of both shepherds pie and fish pie, neither of which have any pastry at all. Crumble could reasonably be considered the dessert version of these but I've never heard it referred to as a pie, hot pot is usually stew covered with sliced potato rather than mash but I've also never heard it called a pie.

    A pie is standard literal for anything oven baked between two peices of pastery with a meat or potato filling.

    Imho, a pie should be ready made and eat out of the box but i dont like pork pies. Pukka Pies? Staple of a good pie.
