British Pie Week 2018 - Day Four

Day Four of British Pie Week always feels like a bit of a lull each year, coming between the judging of the British Pie Awards on the Wednesday and the results being announced on the Friday. However there's still plenty of pies to eat and a great landmark to celebrate today on the Pierate Ship!

As always there is a summary of each day of Pie Week at the bottom of this article and on our dedicated British Pie Week page. Enjoy!

This article will be updated throughout the day/week, so do check back for what we've been up to!

I've made four #PiePledge commitments this British Pie Week, which are the following:

1) One or more pies eaten every day
2) 2 days of annual leave taken to eat, rate and tweet about pies (one of which was Friday just gone, in pre-pie-ration and to get some pies delivered for pie week!)
3) Organise a pie night - which happened on Tuesday evening in Birmingham!
4) Live blog the British Pie Awards

With all bar the pie eating completed in terms of my #PiePledges it was a bit of a quiet day on the blog and twitter, in part due to sad news in the family with the passing of my gran this morning, so I dedicate this post to her memory.

Something that put a bit of a smile on my face on Thursday evening after quite a hard day was seeing the amazing response to our blog on the Wednesday and Thursday, with over 20,000 views of our Radfords Pie Review on Wednesday (our most hits on an article in one day in Pierate history!) and thousands more of our British Pie Awards 2018 - Live! article and other pie week posts meaning that by Thursday night we had officially passed 900,000 views!!

It's quite amazing to think that what started as a little bit of fun from a punny name has spawned into the world's leading pie review blog that is now under 100,000 views from a landmark 1 million views!! Thanks to everyone who has even glanced over just one of our articles, making it what it is today!

The pie of the day was this Bowen's Steak pie and Steak and Stilton pie, which I hope to review later in the week. We've already pie rated the Steak pie as Pierate Highly Recommended, and will review the Steak and Stilton soon!
