|Find out how the Ship's Cook made this wonderful cake pie!|
Our exciting morning news was that with so many viewers in the weeks leading up to British Pie Week, we're delighted that this morning we reached another big milestone - our 600,000th pageview! Helped by over 8,000 views of our "Everything you need to know about British Pie Week" article this already has the makings of the most viewed March pageviews in Pierate history! We're delighted you've chosen us as the home of British Pie Week!
We're also loving the pie chat from fellow Southend-on-Sea born food blogger and author Jack Monroe this morning, who agrees with us on what makes a true pie:
I am not debating this all day.— ❄Jack Monrowflake (@MxJackMonroe) March 9, 2017
Pies have bases, walls and lids, all made of pastry.
Other things think they are pies but they just aren't.
There are things that are pies, and they are amazing.— ❄Jack Monrowflake (@MxJackMonroe) March 9, 2017
There are things that claim to be pies, and they are shit.
Because they aren't pies.
Shepherds pie is not pie.— ❄Jack Monrowflake (@MxJackMonroe) March 9, 2017
Homity pie is not pie.
Key lime pie is not pie.
Pecan pie is not pie.
Davey Cameron is not a pie.
A PIE IS A PIE.
This article will be updated throughout the week, so do check back for what we've been up to!
After yesterday's excitement of live blogging at the British Pie Awards today was a bit more of a mundane affair, being back at work and having to tone down on the pie eating! I still tucked into a Mr Kipling apple pie to keep my pie-a-day commitment going, but it was more about reminiscing about yesterday's British Pie Awards with work colleagues and on Twitter, plus celebrating our next contribution:
The Ship's Cook
With the wonderful cake pie made for our Pierate Piefest last summer, we though it about time to share the reci-pie of how you too can make one! So today the Ship's Cook published her step-by-step guide of how to make one yourself! If you like the look of it, here's the video Pierateer Tim made about our Pierate Piefest last year:
SJL went for something a bit different in the form of a Morrison's Pulled BBQ Beef pie which he has reviewed. Sadly this was a British Pie Week disappointment. The lowest score we have given to a Morrison's pie. If you like necking bottles of BBQ sauce you will love this pie. Normal people won't.
