Pieday Friday - National Pie Day - 23rd January 2015
It's Friday! It's Pieday!
Hap-pie #NationalPieDay everyone!
Yes, of course it is not just the British who celebrate the wonder of pie (although I do think we do an amazing job with a whole British Pie Week dedicated to pie!) The American's have set up National Pie Day to celebrate the pastry beauties - which is this year celebrated today on Friday 23rd January. This makes it an extra special Pieday Friday to enjoy pie on!
So whatever pie you enjoy today, we hope it's a good one that rates well on the 7 Cs of pie rating! If you need any ins-pie-ration, you can of course see the hundreds of pies we've rated on our pie blog via our Pie Rankings or our Pies Categorised!
Of course us Brits need far longer than just a day to enjoy pie in! Which is why we are one of the strongest promoters of British Pie Week, happening this year between Monday 2nd and Sunday 8th March 2015. You know where to come for all the latest pie news this year, but why not reminisce about the 55 pies we ate for British Pie Week 2014?!
British Pie Week 2014 Diary:
15th World Scotch Pie champion awarded!
Last year's winners, The Kandy Bar in Saltcoats, also did very well again this year, winning the "Football Pie" category and scoring well in the Scotch Pie category again. You can read about their previous success and our review of the 2014 Scotch Pie Club Awards that we judged at last year.

Pierate's Pie-lights of the Year
We still can't quite believe how many highlights there were to our year in 2014. It's certainly going to be hard to replicate it again, but we will pie our best! Find out more about our pie-tastic 2014 here and check out our top 6 pielights:
TOP 6 HIGHLIGHT - British Pie Week and all 55 pies consumed by the Pierateers in it! So many highlights, we had to do a whole day-by-day account of it, including a Python pie, a day of just eating apple pie and Pierateer SJL eating 21 pies - one for every meal of British Pie Week.
TOP 6 HIGHLIGHT - Pierateer SJL proving that you can eat pie and lose weight!!! Yes, we can hardly believe it either!
TOP 6 HIGHLIGHT - Pierateer TJP judging at the British Pie Awards 2014, where Pierateer RAS was media correspondent!
TOP 6 HIGHLIGHT - Our first ever TV appearance came on the Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice programme, featuring Michel Roux Jnr rating the Pierateer's Crocodile Pie!
TOP 6 HIGHLIGHT - Featuring on the BBC Sport Website in a video on the "Pies of Football" for the Price of Football Study 2014, including travelling up to Morecambe FC to rate their latest Pork and Irn Bru pie!
