British Pie Week 2015 Pierate Countdown
The countdown to British Pie Week has begun!
British Pie Week 2015 - which runs from Monday 2nd March to Sunday 8th March - is now under 3 weeks away and we're busy at Pierate HQ making our final pre-pie-rations for the big event!
|British Pie Week 2015 is from 2nd to 8th March!|
But in Britain this is simply not enough! We can't compress all our pie-excitement into one day! Oh no! We need a whole week to celebrate and enjoy the wonder of pie, which is why we are proud backers and - some would argue - the strongest advocates of British Pie Week! Yes, it's a week dedicated to pie!
Some of you may well have come across British Pie Week before, which has in fact been around since 2007 as the ingenious marketing spin off of pastry company "Jus-Rol" - and they have managed to bag the lucrative web domain www.britishpieweek.co.uk to encourage pie makers up and down the land to get involved. We're also pleased to see they seem to be taking British Pie Week a bit more seriously this year by creating a dedicated @BritPieWeek twitter account! And we certainly can't deny we have benefited from the ease of picking up some quality Jus-Rol pastry from the supermarket to make some homemade pies in the past!
But what we at Pierate aim to do is go beyond just promoting some pastry, as good as it is, and promote THE PIE!
That's why on Pierate you won't just find an encouragement for you to make a pie this British Pie Week - though we certainly do encourage you do! We don't just suggest a reci-pie or two - though we plan to do that as well! We don't even just encourage you to go out and eat a pie (or two) during British Pie Week. We go above and beyond!

So whatever pie (or pies!) you enjoy in British Pie Week, 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!
Why not watch our short video clip to find out how you can get involved in British Pie Week too! For more ins-pie-ration see our #PiePledge article!
BRITISH PIE WEEK STARS IN OUR TOP PIE-LIGHTS OF 2014!
During British Pie Week last year we Pierateers consumed a quite incredible 55 pies and you can see the breakdown right here! There were so many highlights that 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.
In fact, Pierateer SJL didn't just eat a pie for every meal but he proved that you can eat pie and lose weight!!! Yes, we can hardly believe it either!
Of course 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?!
