Happy Thanksgiving 2013!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Call me old fashioned but I still believe we should be thankful for our food – and particularly the pies. Sure, a lot of us in the Western world simply have to pop down to the local supermarket or pie store to be able to pick up a wide selection of pies, as demonstrated by our long pie rankings list of 250 pies at time of publishing! But we can still all be thankful for each and every one of them (even if they don’t turn out to rate as highly as we had hoped on the 7 Cs pie rating system every time!)

Here’s Paul’s view on things about 2,000 years ago:

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

And it’s not far from those thoughts several thousand years ago that Americans and many others around the world celebrate Thanksgiving Day, to give thanks for the food they have. Sure, like many festivals these days, the idea of “Thanksgiving” has been somewhat pie-jacked by the media and food suppliers as a chance to sell off more of their turkeys and pies, but we at Pierate HQ can see right through that and still want to retain the original “Thanks” in Thanksgiving.

"Turkey" Pie from the American Pie Council Facebook page

So perhaps you would love to enjoy a pie or two this Thanksgiving and don’t know where to start? Well there is much to learn from the American Pie Council and we’ve also found a great article by Kitchen Daily on the “20 Best Pies for Thanksgiving Dinner” for you to enjoy (I’m sure there are lots of awesome articles like this around!)

And perhaps you will be ins-pie-red to share your pie by watching a little video by @KirstyTV and @worldneedspie on the “The joy of pie” – where Kirsty and Beth bake and shares some pie with American citizens for free and share the pie love this Thanksgiving time.


Whether it’s Apple Pie, Pecan Pie or Pumpkin Pie in the United States, or even a Turkey Pie like we have in the UK, go on... bake or just eat a pie and share it this Thanksgiving time!

Of course the @Pierateers twitter has been awash with Thanksgiving pie promotions and delicious looking pie photos (well, any excuse for a pie really!) and there are far too many pie companies to mention here, which would not really be fair due to the vast quantity and because we have not rated them all (yet!)

HOWEVER WE WANT TO THANK EVERY SINGLE PIE PRODUCER OUT THERE FOR THE PIES THEY HAVE MADE THIS YEAR AND WISH THEM ALL A VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING! ENJOY THE PIE!!!

Pierate is a pie review website charting a course to find the ultimate pie. For all the pies we have reviewed have a look at our Pie Rankings or find pies of a particular flavour under Pies: Categorised.

Make sure you 
and let us know your thoughts!
