Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American readers! You can read our ode to the Thanksgiving pie here. And he's already a confirmed pie-lover on our Celebrities Who Love Pies list, but Barack Obama went one step beyond proving his love for pies by serving up 6 different types of pie for his Thanksgiving dinner. "We go all out on pies," said the president. "We don't play with pie."

Obama, we salute you.

Yorkshire bakery cooks up world's BIGGEST mince pie

I'm not mincing my words when I say that Yorkshire-based Lottie Shaw's bakery have concocted a MONSTER of a pie. This gigantosaurus weighs 2 stone and contains a whopping 56,140 calories. Very im-pie-ressive!

Would you eat an insect pie?

TV presenter Stefan Gates was at Borough Market this week offering a rather unusual twist on your regular mince pie - the mince fly. Alongside the traditional spiced fruit, these pies also contained larvae and locusts, with the aim to challenge people's preconceptions and encourage them to consider other sustainable food sources.
