British Pie Week 2016 - Day Five
The major results of the British Pie Awards 2016 were announced Friday, Day Five of British Pie Week. And what a shock it was! For the first time in the award's history the Supreme Champion was not a pie at all, but a pasty! Unsurprisingly we were completely outraged - writing an article in response to the result - and spent most of the afternoon in shock, responding to various tweets and reading news articles about it.But the most exciting thing was that we at Pierate Pie Reviews were forming the news, with a number of our tweets and info being featured in the following publications:
Controversy as a pasty triumphs at the British Pie Awards - The Telegraph
The winner of the 2016 British Pie Awards is…a pasty - The Metro
Here are a few of the pie-lights from our Twitter feed on Friday:
As a judge at the awards the last 3 yrs, we are seriously considering a boycott over this. What next? Sausage Rolls? https://t.co/cZRPi4mb75— Pierate (@pierateers) March 11, 2016

Pierateer SJL responded to the day's news by creating a pasty related video for his "Unique Ways to Eat a Pie" series of videos and Pierateer RAS polished off the last remaining Lewis Pies, as well as getting his review from the Lewis pies he'd rated earlier in the week ready to post!
