Pierate filming with the BBC - Pieday Friday - 10th October 2014


It's Friday! It's Pieday!


Pierate Filming Special!

Without wanting to blow our own trumpets too loudly, having rated and reviewed over 440 pies on the web’s premier pie review blog it’s almost surprising that no-one thought to seek the opinions of the piefessionals behind www.pierate.co.uk sooner! But we were delighted to be contacted by BBC Sport recently to film our pie insights on what makes a good football pie.

Of course we’re not going to spoil the surPIEs just yet – you’ll have to wait and see what makes the edit when the “BBC Price of Football” survey comes out on Wednesday 15th October – but what we can say is that we were delighted to be involved and grabbed the opPIEtunity of eating a few more pies from Morecambe FC’s award winning pie kitchen while we were there, including their new Pork, Irn Bru and Chilli pie (review to come soon)!

For those not familiar, you can read our review of their meat pies from our VIP trip back in January 2014, alongside our review of their Apple pie which we ate at half-time. We rated it very highly, especially for a dessert pie, but little did we know the apple pie would go on to win best pie at the British Pie Awards 2014, where we judged.

We’ll share more with you after Wednesday’s findings are released but are delighted to have finally made it as pie experts, just under 5 years since we began sailing the 7 Cs in search of the perfect pie!
