Happy Thanksgiving 2014!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's not often that we stop and think how thankful we are 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 over 425 pies at time of publishing! But we can still all be thankful for each and every one of them (even if they don’t all turn out to rate as highly as we had hoped on the 7 Cs pie rating system every time!)

"Turkey" Pie from the American Pie Council Facebook page
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.

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 there are lots of awesome articles and recipes around if you wish to bake your own. Take for example the apple pie recipe by Youtube Chef Caroline Mili Artiss - who has her own Youtube Channel sharing lots of top recipes. This particular recipe can be found on the "indi" website which showcased this apple pie alongside some other goods from this time of year in a competition a few weeks ago and Pierateer Rob went on to bake it for our recent 5th Birthday Pie-rty - another thing to be thankful for as we celebrated 5 years of Pierate just a few weeks ago!

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! And it you need some ins-pie-ration, why not check out our pie rankings once again!

AND WHEREVER YOU ARE, 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.
