International Pierate Day 2019

We Pierateers of pie review website www.pierate.co.uk are today celebrating our 10th Birthday, and we'd love you to join us by simply eating a pie and rating it!

That’s why we’ve designated
12th November as International Pierate Day!

The Pierate Pie made especially for us by Nice Pie!
It follows in the footsteps of the very first International Pierate Day in 2013, which has been celebrated on 12th November every year since! But we don’t want you – pie lovers worldwide – to just sit at home and watch as we eat all the pies! Oh no! Pie eating and pie rating is something we can all enjoy. Something that can bring friends, family and communities together. Pies are celebrated and eaten in so many countries worldwide and so today – marking our tenth birthday – we would love you to join us in eating and rating pies this week to celebrate!

This weekend we will be celebrating our tenth birthday in style, eating our number one rated pie with around 50 guests! Yes, where else could we go for a top birthday-celebrating pie than the Steak and Ale pie from the one and only MyPie London, who have been our number 1 ranked pie for most of their five years in business! We'll be using the illustrated guide below on how to rate a pie, based on our 7 Cs of pie rating, which we commissioned fellow food blogger and amazing illustrator Emily from www.recipesandreviews.co.uk to create for us for our 6th birthday!

So here’s the deal... in six simple words: Eat a pie and rate it!

It doesn’t matter whether it’s savoury or sweet, or whether you prefer your pies without the wheat or meat! We really do rate anything and everything that is a true pie and sometimes a number of interesting things that try to be pies too! But the important thing is we love to eat pie and rate it – for we are, after all, the Pierateers!

So once you’ve found a pie to eat – whether in the local bakery, butchers, supermarket or your favourite pie shop or one you have made in the luxury of your own home – why not rate your pie using the Seven Cs of pie rating in our lovely illustrated guide above?

We very much enjoyed eating and rating the British Pie Awards 2018 winning Steak and Ale Pie from Turner's Pies at our annual birthday pie-rty last year!

This time round on Saturday we are looking forward to once again enjoying our number 1 pie out of over 650 when we enjoy the Steak and Ale pie from MyPie London!

So what do you need to do now?

Well, first things first - you need a pie (or two!) For insPIEration you might find our Pie Rankings helpful, with over 650 pies we've rated and reviewed over the past 10 years! Or perhaps you want to make one of the pies our Ship's Cook has made, following her reci-pies here.

You can even watch us on the BBC website advising what to look for in a pie!

Most of all, we hope you enjoy eating and rating pies this week! We sure will and can't wait for our birthday Pie Night this weekend!!!
