Finally, British Pie Week has arrived. I feel like I have been waiting for months – mainly because it’s been the talk of the office for months while we have been working closely with one of our clients to plan it.
It was all the way back in January when I attended a pie photoshoot – a tough job but somebody has to do it. Seven delicious pie recipes were specially developed for JusRol’s British Pie Week, cooked fresh on the day, photographed and then devoured by the team. I now have a new favourite – Beef Ragu & Chorizo Pie, it’s truly delicious.
My own local pub, The Fox, doesn’t wait for British Pie Week, embracing the feel good factor of a range of handmade pies all year round. But for those pubs that don’t, there’s no excuse. JusRol has produced a fantastic recipe book to help caterers create its perfect pies, from Venison, Red Wine and Root Vegetable to Glazed Banana, Chocolate and Peanut Butter – there’s a pie for everyone.
Inspired by some of these, a group of friends and I recently went away for a weekend, staying in a beautiful Townhouse on the seafront in Kent – and we hosted a pie themed night-in. There were some amazing offerings, from ham hock and pink peppercorn, to key lime pie, a delicious way to spend a rainy night!
In fact, the recent cold snap couldn’t be more perfectly timed for British Pie Week, allowing us to indulge in our love of pies at a cosy warm local, with a glass of red or maybe a pint of ale, and a tasty, freshly cooked pie to warm us through.
