Pierate on BBC Radio again - Pieday Friday - 19th December 2014

It's Friday! It's Pieday!

Pierate on BBC Radio's The Mark Forrest Show

We were delighted to once again be able to chat pie on BBC Radio's The Mark Forrest Show last night, having previously been on the show back in May!

Listen in to the show on catch up here - with Pierateer Rob chatting pie with Mark for several minutes from 47 minutes in.

Mark kindly called Pierate "one of the best websites out there" and recommended callers take a look and find out if their favourite pie was on our pie rankings list!

Among other things, we discussed the Beef Bourguignon Pie at Manchester City FC - which rated very well - and the crocodile pie we had from Nice Pie.

Pie Tweet of the Week!

Following the above mentioned appearance on BBC Radio's Mark Forrest Show, were were delighted to be called some of the country's biggest pie fans!

World Pie Eating Championships Controversy

You just could not make this stuff up! There has been reported turmoil at the World Pie Eating Championships - held where else but Wigan. Over-sized pies were sent to the venue, meaning competitors were asked to eat half a pie in record speed, something that was then not accepted as an official result. You can read more about the rules and regulations in this BBC News article.

Partridge in a Pear Pie!

Partridge in a pear pie review
Partridge in a pear pie!
You'll no doubt have heard the 12 Days of Christmas song, which concludes with the "Partridge in a Pear tree". But have you ever wondered what a partridge tastes like? Surely your true love would rather receive a pie, than a partridge in a pear tree?! Or better still, a Partridge in a pear pie?

Yes... incredibly this pie does exist and we are looking forward to rating it! We're not quite sure what to expect here at Pierate HQ but we're grateful to Nice Pie for sending us one to rate this Christmas time!

In the meantime, check out all the exotic Nice Pie reviews we have already done, including camel, squirrel and crocodile!

Wycombe's Football Pie Summer Transfer

The Pierateers have rated pies in grounds up and down the country - even appearing on the BBC to offer our pie advice! - and are looking to expand the number of pies in their Pieremiership table! But in amongst all this, they also keep their eyes on the pies for significant summer transfers, which includes changing pie suppliers at our country’s football clubs.

One such club who have made a substitution this summer are Wycombe Wanderers, who you may already know are the local club of the Pierateers following the Morecambe pie visit earlier this year.

Find out how we rated the new pie offering at Adam’s Park – made by Phat Pasty Co. – as Wycombe Wanderers took on Southend United.
