As a nation of pie fanatics, March 6th commences something of a British national holiday (or at least it deserves to be!)
The second week in March will see the ever-so popular ‘British Pie Week’ encourage foodies everywhere to try pie, and there’s nothing better than a delicious, hearty pie!
To celebrate this week, Island Stories chef, Devon, has prepared a special Island Stories Mutton Stew Pie with a side of mash and mixed vegetables, and a healthy serving of gravy of course.
When you choose Island Stories as you’re caterer you are guaranteed to receive a level of food that is like no other. Foods that are infused by a variety of selected cuisines from islands around the world.
Other pies to try:
Filo Pastry Fish Pie – Fish pie doesn’t have to mean a heavy mashed potato mess! Instead top your halibut, sea bass and prawn filled pie with a layer of deliciously light and crispy filo pastry.
Spiced Parsnip Shepard’s Pie – A different take on a classic British pie; spice up your traditional pie with ginger and curried parsnips. Your seasoned parsnips will make the perfect topping to your classic Shepard’s Pie.
Steak and Ale Pie – It wouldn’t be a ‘pie to try’ list without a timeless British pie. Add a splash of Worcestershire sauce and dark ale into your beef mix to thicken up your pie sauce.
Chicken, Kale & Mushroom Pot Pie – Nothing makes a greater family supper than a chicken and mushroom pot pie! Layer your onions, chicken, mushrooms as well as your kale, stock and crème fraiche into your pastry to create your simple yet satisfying pot pie.
