There is nothing better than a proper serving of pie and mash. Except for one soaked in gravy and topped with all the trimmings…mushy peas, cheddar cheese, crispy shallots. Umm umm, delicious.
Us Northerners like our pies so it only seemed fitting that we try and find some good’ens!
Pieminster, it turns out, is the place to go.
I mean they do have a motto which I can fully get behind ^
Pieminster’s a little place which insist on quality ingredients to make their pies taste even better. They started down South, but luckily for us, they migrated up North and there are a few scattered around the country.
It’s probably worth noting that these aren’t like any of those fake pies. You know the ones with just a pastry lid on top – frauds!! No, these are encased in shortcrust pastry with a puff pastry lid on top.
I went for Saag Pie-neer.
A pie filled with spinach and paneer cheese curry. Does it get much better? Oh yes, of course topped with mushy peas, grated cheddar cheese and sprinkled with crispy shallots.
Then comes the gravy..
Let’s get a close up shall we..
Okay enough of the #PiePorn..hmm, that doesn’t sound like it’s a thing…but you know what I mean.
Hap-pie as Larry we were.
If anyone’s got any other great pie suggestions, hit me up!!
