Pierate’s 5th Birthday Pie-rty
Celebrating 5 years of www.pierate.co.uk with our second pie party/contest!
We’ve been talking about it for weeks, but on Saturday 22nd November we completed our ‘Month of birthday surPIEses’ – in celebration of 5 years since www.pierate.co.uk began! Having celebrated International Pierate Day 2014 less than two weeks ago, we gave almost 60 guests the chance to rate some pies at our 5th Birthday Pie-rty, held in Birmingham.
British Pie Awards 2014.

|The brilliant homemade pies!|
Following in the footsteps of our Pierate Pie Contest 2013, guests had the chance to bring their own pie creations – this time for dessert – with a wide range of pies (and a few “pies”) brought along and thoroughly enjoyed! There was a great selection of dessert pies provided, ranging from the traditional apple and fruit pies to chocolate and cherry and one containing three snickers bars! Naturally the guests were told about the 7 Cs of pie rating and able to give the pies they tried a pie rating!
You can read about and see more pictures of the pies that were eaten and rated at our 5th Birthday Pie-rty in our "Pies at the Pierate Party" article!
|Paul's Pies as pie-rizes!|
All in all the pie party flew by and with a quick game of pass the piecel to end the night on, featuring some delicious Paul's Pies as the pie-rizes, everyone went home happy (particularly those who had baked a homemade pie, who got to take home one of Paul’s Highly Rated Pies with them as a big thank you!) Thanks to Paul’s Pies for providing a big box of their delicious pies for pie-rizes!
Pierateer RAS had this to say at the end of the night: "Many thanks to all those who helped in setting up and setting down the venue - I couldn't have done it without you! - and those who brought pies along. It was a pietastic evening of fun with friends and family! While there was unfortunately not time to work out whose homemade pie won in the end, I think we can all safely say that ‘everyone was a winner’ after an evening of fabulous pies from The London Pie and Mash Company and our home bakers!"
Here’s to many more fun pie nights ahead!
