#BlackPieday

Nov 17 2016

What would you give for a pie this Friday?

black pie day header

 

With many of us gearing up for a Black Friday spending spree this Friday, we wanted to turn this event on its head and use it to do something good. That’s why we’ll be giving away frozen surplus pie stock in return for donations to Shelter.

Shelter helps millions of people struggling with bad housing or homelessness every year and Black Pieday is a chance to support the charity and get a pie in return.  We think that’s money-well-spent.

So find your nearest Black Pieday pop-up shop and spend your money wisely, giving to charity in return for delicious pies.   We’ll have award-winning free range British chicken pies, British beef steak pies and vegetarian pies. But get there early because once they’re gone they’re gone.

Our Black Pieday pop-up shops open at 8.30am this Friday 25 November at the following locations:

Broad Quay & Stokes Croft, Bristol

Long Row, Nottingham

Duncan Street, Leeds

Gabriel’s Wharf & Leather Lane, London

The Northern Quarter, Manchester

St Mary’s Street, Cardiff

We also open the same day, at 11am, in:

Trentham, Stoke On Trent

The Covered Market, Oxford

Black Pieday is the inspiration behind another idea of ours called Little Acts of Pieness.  This charitable campaign began in Spring 2016 and we’ve donated 18,000 pies already.

Black Pieday is a #littleactofpieness for Shelter.

    Hi,

    I am a librarian for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, one of the poorest boroughs in London. Despite this, we are proud to say that we have prioritised our library service to the extent that we have ensured that no branches have closed, unlike the massive closures throughout the country.

    We provide much-needed services for our community, including a number of regular community groups. These include Prime Time, a group for the over-50s, where people can come and enjoy socialising and a programme of activities, inclding film screnings, talks, trips and other events. Each branch runs their own Prime Time, and the one where I work, at Cubitt Town Library, on the Isle of Dogs, meets every Thursday and attracts an average of around 19 people each week.

    I was wondering whether you would consider letting us have some of your delicious pies so that we can organise a free lunch for the group. This would be a much appreciated treat, especially for the senior citizens who are group regulars. We woulld organise this with St John’s Community Centre, an organisation that we have worked with often.

    Needless to say, your help would be fully acknowledged in all publicity and we would be happy to publicise your products to those who attend.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards,
    Sotiris Kyriacou

    Hi Sam, thanks for getting in touch. We have been giving our Little Acts of Pie-ness pies to all sorts of good causes, which in this context means any event which is not-for-profit. It can be something to raise funds (or simply raise peoples’ spirits!) From street parties to fundraising lunches in the office – we consider them all. Our Little Acts of Pieness is currently closed (we’ve run out of pies!) but we want to open it up again as soon as we can, so watch this space. Oh and also, it’s a nationwide initiative open to anyone who can collect the pies from one of our restaurants.

    Thanks again for getting in touch and have a very happy Crustmas!

    Romany and the team at Pieminister.

    Please let me know how a project could meet your criteria of ‘a good cause’ and if there is a limited geographical area it needs to be in? i.e. only in Bristol? Great ‘pie’dea, thank you.

    This pie made me so happy I nearly cried. I still dream about it & going to have it for xmas dinner.

    Hi Betty
    Many thanks for your comment. In actual fact our pies aren’t packaged in foil at all (and we only make individual pies packed directly into a recyclable card box). Also, our award winning pastry tastes a million times better when cooked in the oven as it crisps up so beautifully (a microwave tends to make the pastry a bit soggy and chewy!)

    Have a very merry (pie-filled) crustmas!

    Hi Michael

    Many thanks for your comment. We’d love to have been in Bournemouth for Black Pieday (or any other day for that matter) but we don’t (yet) have a cafe or restaurant there and for this event, we gave away pies for the charity Shelter outside our cafes and restaurants to keep costs down so that every penny we made could go to the charity.

    Thanks though and have a very Merry (pie filled) Crustmas.

    Hi Sally, Thanks so much for your inquiry. As you can imagine we get so many requests for different types of pies, for different dietary needs – it just takes a remarkably long time to create new pastries for our pies that we’re happy are as good as our classic recipes.

    We’ve just spent the last year creating the perfect Gluten Free pastry as this was the pastry requested the most and we’re very pleased with the result (both pies came top in the British Pie Awards). We do get a few requests for vegan pies (though you’re the first person to have asked for a pie suitable for lactose intolerants) so this is definitely on our ‘to do’ list.

    Thank you again for getting in touch and please be assured that your request will be taken into consideration when we plan what to cook up in the pie kitchen next.

    Kindest regards

    Romany

    Good for you guys – A brilliant idea and so nice to hear that some people think to give rather than take. It may be an American tradition, thanksgiving, however if we can adopt Halloween from the US why not the idea of giving thanks or maybe just the giving part !! xxx

    What a brilliant idea to give out pies for donations to a charity – sadly nothing near me in Braintree – but all the best just the same

  35. Betty Waling

    suggestion: That you package your pies for stores in containers that can be microwaved rather than in foil pans. They are great – but makes no sense to heat a whole over for a mini pie.

    Hi, I work for a charity supporting unpaid family carers. These carers care for a loved one, most often in their own home. It could be someone caring for their wife with dementia, their child with a disability or a loved one with cancer or other long term illness or disability. These carers receive no financial recompense for this and may have had to give up work or reduce their working hours which can sometimes lead to financial hardship. Unpaid carers save the economy and tax payer a staggering £1.8 billion a year! We are a support, information and advice service with over 10,000 carers on our mailing list, (though there are over 70,000 unpaid carers in Leeds). We also run support groups, training courses, therapy and wellbeing sessions, events and outings to try give unpaid carers a much needed break, research shows a high percentage of carers become unwell due to not taking care of their own physical or mental health and wellbeing. We have started a ‘bat and chat’ group on a Friday where carers can come along have a game of table tennis, meet staff and other carers and have a cuppa, biscuit and hopefully a break and some time out. We heard about your generous pie give away (I’m getting to the point at last :-)) and thought we would like to incorporate a Friday pie day along with our usual bat and chat. We would invite carers to make a monetary donation should they wish which would go into our funds to provide the outings and activities we provide. I’m wondering if you have a special form we need to fill out or if this would suffice as a request? We would be asking for 30 pies for our event, we could lower this and have a smaller event if there is a limit? Thank you for taking the time to read this rather long request (you may have read shorter books :-)). Please feel free to visit our website and see the wonderful work we do . http://www.carersleeds.org.uk/. You may have family carers on your work force that may benefit from our support. Please feel free to pass our info on if you do. Thanks again. Kind Regards. Angie Thompson

    Hi there,

    We have got married and moved house in the last 2 months and now our new street is hosting it’s very first street party this October.

    I was wondering if you may still be providing community events with some of your delicious pies?!

    I think we’d be a real hit with the street if we could pull this one off!

    Thanks so much,

    Ellie

    Hello, just wondering if there will be another ‘free pies give away’ in the coming months. Im on a new fundraising committee for an animal rescue in Tarleton, Lancashire, called Noah’s Ark Rescue & Sanctuary. They rescue unwanted and abandoned animals, and either re-home where possible or offer sanctuary for the rest of their lives. We had our first ever fundraiser in June, and are now planning a Christmas one for the end of November. Please would you keep us in mind if you do repeat the offer again. We would be looking to sell between 50-100 ‘pie, peas and gravy’ but obviously any amount would be more than appreciated. Many thanks and kind regards. Keep up the good work! Alison, on behalf of Noahs Arks animals.

    I wouldn’t normally send a fan letter about my dinner, but your free ranger pie was so unbelievably tasty I’m about to drive to the shop and buy a pile of them. Everything was amazing, faultless dinner. About to feed one to my American wife, who is pie ignorant.

    Usually I’m too busy earning a “crust” to enter competitions but I’m willing to make an exception this time.So I just have to make a comment,no “filling” in any forms,sounds easy enough.”Sweet” competition,something to “savour” if I win.There we are all done in two “shakes”.

    Pork Pies in front of my eyes
    Sitting under Glastonbury Skies
    Udderly Shaken with those Rolling Stone Guys

    I’ve got an awesome Heidi-a, you should send all those goodies to me,
    And I’d create the festival experience, in comfort, in front of the TV,
    Alas, I’ve no tickets for Glasto, But I’m willing to improvise,
    I’d pitch a tent in the lounge, get on down with The Stones,
    And swig Shakes while munching on Pies!

    June 23rd, 2013
  195. Rachael

    I should win because “your milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, and they’re like…you’re NOT going to Glastonbury?”
    No I’m not, I’m going to wait til Pieday, and instead of living the pie-life at Glasto, I’ll spend my pie-day night playing monopiely eating so many Pieminsters that I can’t moove off the sofa and bend down to pie my shoes.
    It’s be an udder sur-pies to win this yummy prize. (And if I did I’d get pie-eyed)

    June 23rd, 2013

    I pie with my little eye,

    Milk & Pies, what’s not to like? I fancy a bit of Shroom, or Kate & Sidney, with a large glass of Chocolush to wash it down with please! Then I’d be kicking back with the kids & Hubby, chillin’ out & catching the tuuuuunes, baby!

    I like my milk shaken not stirred,
    anything other than Pieminster would be absurd.
    The perfect combo of pie and milkshakes
    gives me non stop, uncontrollable quakes.
    I’ve missed Glasto, not seen the Stones,
    some pie and shakes would stop all my moans.

    June 22nd, 2013
  199. I need because my milkshake brings all the boys to yard, and they’re like, it’s better with straws. And pies. La la la la la, warm it up. Or eat it cold, the choice is yours, really.

    Would love to win some shakes,

    And a scrumptious pie too,
    Meat and pastry keeps me grooving

    June 22nd, 2013
  201. Deborah Swain

    P-assionate about your pies,
    I-n love with this ‘moo’velous shake,
    E-very festival freak knows,
    M-usic’s better with pastry, and, steak,
    I-t’s like Glasto ‘crusty’ mud, welly’s, ‘n’, wet weather,
    N-othing could possibly go better together,
    I-s ‘udder’ly a ‘tent’ing, taste sensation,
    S-uch a ‘crowd pleasing’ creation,
    T-o take these, I’d be like the ‘cow who got the cream’,
    E-very ‘rock and roll’ers dream,
    R-eally can’t wait….me, milk, meat !..now open that field gate!

    June 22nd, 2013

    Mumford’s rocking with his Sons,
    But getting down with shakes and pies would be my number one!!

    My favourite pie’s the Heidi Pie cos veggies aren’t left out,

    I have a serious medical condition that is almost the opposite of lactose intolerance. If I don’t drink at least 32 milkshakes I will die!! Can you handle having this on your conscience? As you can imagine drinking that many milkshakes can sometimes leave you feeling a bit ill, I have found eating exactly a dozen pies helps with this. This of course has taken its toll on my weight, my manboobs now look udderly ridiculous!

    June 22nd, 2013
  210. To the stage I shall I take,
    With a pie and a shake,
    With wellies and a a mac,
    I shall complete my snack attack.

    Let the tunes be oh so yummy,
    Let the milk stick on my face,
    As pastry perfection fills my tummy,
    I shall find paradise in this place!

    June 22nd, 2013

  214. emma speers

    How lucky, 32 delicious milkshakes… you definitely need a few cos after one you will need an udder one and an udder one once you get the taste for it! And after getting pie-eyed at the festival, you’ll need nothing more than a good feel from Pieminster (oi oi now not like that you dirty beggars you!) Once you have indulged I can assure you, your milkshake really will be bringing all the boys to the yard…. Now time to start practicing my own shaking for the festival music :)

  215. I comment when I especially enjoy a post on a blog or if
    I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion.
    It’s a result of the sincerness communicated in the article I read. And on this article Feeding The 5000 (well 4,324 actually!) | the pieminister blog. I was actually excited enough to post a commenta response :) I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it only me or does it give the impression like a few of these
    remarks appear as if they are written by brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I would
    like to follow you. Would you make a list all of
    all your communal pages like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?

    It would be great to drink a milkshake as The Rolling Stones move past your eyes (pasteurize) before eating your fill in Glastonbury (filling) on enough pies to make you feel a heifer!

    June 20th, 2013
  217. I need to eat at Glastonbury because i dont i get angry and turn into a bit of ‘matador’ – im also going with a few friends so it would be nice to share the pies and drinks and have an ‘udderley’ good time – (maybe I should have thought of a ‘butter’ pun)

  224. […] Instead of making something special for St Paddy’s Day, I have decided to drink a lot of Guinness in honour of our Irish neighbours. However, I did find a brilliant recipe for such an occasion in my brand new copy of Peminister’s ‘a pie for all seasons’ cookbook. The book itself is brilliant, full of interesting and unusual pies, tips and many other useful bits and bobs. I highly recommend this book and the brand as well. Anyway the pie in question looks lovely and heres the recipe courtesy of Pieminister – Posh Paddy’s Pie […]

    I am disappointed by the name of your latest pie. Notwithstanding his sporting achievements, it also suggests political affiliation and as such is VERY offputting.

    JUST TRIED ONE OF YOUR SHAMROCK PIES,THE FILLING WAS TASTY AND THE GRAVY WAS A NICE TOUCH, BUT YOUR PASTRY NEEDS MORE FAT OR LESS HANDLING TO MAKE IT EATABLE,
    THE PACKAGING WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE TENDER!

    Keep up the great work!

    Hi

    Do you guys know about the ‘cross cultural transforamtion of pastry based snacks. I see Tristan is doing a talk about pies round the world at Papedeli -so I expect that he does. The following comes from my forthcoming novel; Rules of the Road.
    Cheers

    Mike Manson

    ‘When I go back to University I’ve got an idea for my dissertation,’ Boz continued.
    ‘You’re intending to go back?’
    ‘Yeah.’
    ‘I thought you were disappointed by the course.’
    ‘It’s better than working.’
    ‘I suppose so.’
    ‘Anyway, I’m thinking of undertaking some research on the cross cultural transmogrification of pastry-based snacks.’
    ‘Meaning?’
    ‘The evolution of pies. I might do this for my Social Anthropology dissertation.’
    ‘Interesting. I didn’t realise there was a Darwinian aspect to baking.’
    ‘Not Darwinian. This is for the Food and Culture option. What I’m saying is there are international forces influencing the development of pies.’
    ‘Does that include sweet pastries as well?’
    ‘Good question Max. Now you mention it, it does. Take, for example, the humble egg tart that is so popular with the Chinese.’
    ‘Is it?’
    ‘Haven’t you ever had egg tart with dim sum?’
    ‘Not that I can recall.’ I don’t think I’d ever had dim sum, in fact, I didn’t know what it was.
    ‘Well, the development of the egg tart can be tracked across the world right back to England. What do they call custard in France? Crème anglaise. The twelfth century crusaders introduced the egg tart to the Portuguese on their way to the Holy Land. The Portuguese then developed it into their own Pastel de Nata. Many centuries later, it was adopted by the Sri Lankans – which in the 17th Century was colonised by Vasco de Gama and his crew – who, being partial to a bit of heat in their food, spiced it up. Which in turn was passed on to the Chinese indentured labourers working on the tea estates. And so it goes on.’
    ‘Boz, I’m impressed. You know your stuff.’
    ‘So that’s why I’m keen to go to Albania. I’ve done a little research since you came up with the itinerary and apart from the experience of visiting one of the world’s most totally totalitarian states, I’m interested to sample their food.’
    ‘Why didn’t you say this before?’
    ‘I’ve only just figured it out.’
    ‘Maybe you’re on to something. I doubt anybody else would have come up with such a…’ I was choosing my words carefully here… ‘with such an unusual idea.’
    ‘Although Albania isn’t known to have one of the great cuisines of the world,’ said Boz, ‘they do have their own version of the pasty. It was introduced by Cornish miners during the Balkan Tin Rush of the 1890s. It’s called bureka; it looks like a traditional pasty but contains fermented cabbage.’

    Blue and white! Also think the ‘Keep Calm and Eat More Pies’ would make a great t-shirt

    The blue with white would be my first preference, the black with white the second. Wouldn’t mind a grey with white either.

    My favourite is definitely Grey & Pink (9). Closely followed by Blue & Orange (3).

    I like them all, but if I had to choose a couple, then blue & white and black & pink.

    Rob Bell – preacher from the States – loves your pies too! He said (19/4/11) one of the reasons he loves Greenbelt (Christian Arts Festival) is your pie stall – he said something like – ‘there’s a little bit of heaven crashed to earth right there!’ He should know – he’s just published a book on heaven and hell ‘Love Wins’. I think you should export to the USA….
