    I have only recently discovered your gluten free pies. I’m not just gluten free – I have a stomach condition which means there are many foods that I can’t eat and my diet is severely restricted. Happily your steak and ale pie isn’t included in that list. It’s wonderful to be able to have tasty pastry again. I have tried other makes of gf pies and they were so bad that it put me off for ages. Then saw yours in my local small Waitrose and bought one – what a happy discovery that was. I’m addicted to them now – usually two a week. I had one this evening and looked up whether you do a steak and kidney one. Sadly you don’t yet – maybe you will in the future. I hope so but in the meantime thank you for producing a fantastic gluten free steak and ale pie.

    Love the pastry crust and the flavour, it just needs a bit of pizazz – porcini mushrooms maybe?

    I used to love pies, pasties then I got an allergy, my worst nightmare still shaking from it now! I became allergic to Gluten, no more decent pastry for me, my world was at an end… but I went to visit my sister and she took me to one of your restaurants, I did not think it was actually possible for me to have a decent pie anymore, I was not really that excited about going but OMG I was so wrong, and am so glad you proved me wrong. You have proven to me that it is actually possible to have good gluten free pastry, you should be nominated with best gluten free pastry creator of the decade. Yes this is put across in a light hearted manner, but I really did enjoy my pie!! : )

    Love your gluten free pies. Pastry is spot on. Disappointed no festive special gf pies xmas 2018.

    Any chance of expanding the range, 3 is great but getting a bit jealous of all the other options.

    Moo is our favourite, bit other meats exist (chicken leek and mushroom please!!!). Also, other veg options would be nice.

    March 4th, 2019
  26. Rebecca Lightburn

    I love pie

    I love how the ‘chicken’ isn’t so meaty tasting, its perfect for vegans and honestly amazing!

    Divine – best veggie pie ever, always on my shopping list if I can find somewhere that stocks it.

    February 10th, 2019
  33. Annewithane

    Mostly liked this pie but for the bizarre addition of vinegary silverskin onions which don’t belong.

    February 10th, 2019

    My gluten free moo pie was fabulous. Being gluten intolerant it has made me so happy. Going to stock up now. Congrats to the chef I am able to serve up delicious pies mine being gluten free the Sunday lunch club love them. Thank you

    This is certainly the most delicious pie I think I have ever had-whether it was gluten free or not.

    January 31st, 2019
  38. Laura

    This is my favourite pie but you’ve stopped selling it in Waitrose. Please bring it back!

    I have just tried Kevin and was not impressed at all. I and my husband both thought they were mushy inside and not nice at all.

    Hi Janet,

    The gluten is removed from the barley during the brewing process. All the goodness, without the gluten.

    Love, the Pie Crew

    THE most delicious pie, and gravy inside, I have ever eaten wouldn’t even know it was gluten free!

    January 19th, 2019

    How is it gluten free if it has barley in it?

    Hi Erika,

    That’s a great question. Palm oil is an issue we care about very much. In line with leading environmentalists, including Greenpeace and WWF, we believe that it’s important to support those committed to growing palm oil in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. So having explored all viable alternatives, we continue to use a minimal amount of 100% fully segregated / fully sustainable RSPO-certified palm oil in our pie lids (less than 2% of the pie).

    Something we are mindful of is that switching to another product could contribute to a surge in demand for an alternative product, which in turn could create issues with another industry and sustainability.

    It’s a difficult but important issue and we’re doing everything we can to keep our pies, our customers and the environment as happy as can be.

    Hope that helps, The Pie Crew.

    January 18th, 2019
  45. Helen

    Thank you so much for making the Kevin pie! It’s so delicious!!

    January 17th, 2019
  46. Erika Lucas

    I am extremely disappointed to see that you use palm oil in your pies. Do you not realise the damage harvesting palm oil does, not only to the environment but more importantly to the orang-utans. They are being killed and are now endangered so why are you using palm oil. Don’t tell me the palm oil you use is sustainable because there is no such thing. What is sustainable about clearing jungles and killing orang-utans? . As a vegan I was pleased to see your Kevin pie on sal,e but on checking the ingredients, found that it also contained palm oil so was surprised that PETA was recommending it I did write to PETA in December and asked them how can they recommend your Kevin pie when it contains palm oil. Needless to say they still haven’t replied to me.

    The pastry and pie itself was very tasty, but spoilt by a totallack of steak, 1 piece and kidney 5 s

  57. Naomi Sandercock

    Hi Cathy,
    We do our best to make sure everyone can have a pie feast with us, no matter dietary requirements or lifestyle choices. For a Christmas feast, you can swap in one of our gluten-free pies (we’d suggest the Heidi), with mash, a pigs in blanket stick & festive slaw. Then you can top it all off with an indulgent sundae, such as the Lemon Meringue Pie, Chocwork Orange or Honey Bee. Plenty of gluten-free goodness to feast on!
    But we’ll pass this on to our kitchen crew & see what we can do about a gluten-free festive pie for next year.
    Love, the Pie Crew

    You mention and make a bug thing about vegan and vegetarian (these are own diet choices) but what are you doing for gluten free which isn’t a choice for many people

    Hi Niki, it’s great question & palm oil is a really important issue we’re working to tackle at Pieminister. We are currently working with our UK supplier to trace the palm oil we do use to ensure it is fully sustainable. However, we’re also exploring alternatives that we could use instead. Something we’re mindful of is that switching to another product could contribute to a surge in demand for an alternative product, which in turn could create issues with another industry and sustainability. It’s a difficult but important issue and we’re doing everything we can to keep both our pies, our customers and the environment as happy as can be. Hope that helps, The Pie Crew x

    Just got to check – palm oil free?
    Rare but has been done and i love a good pie but can’t justify destroying the homes of indigenous population or the habitat orangutans rely on, to tickle my tastebuds.
    Staying optimistic. Thanks. Does sound delicious

  107. The Pie Crew

    Hello Hannah,

    Pieminister’s first pies were cooked at home by founders and brothers-in-law Jon Simon and Tristan Hogg. They still create the pie recipes we make today and these still reflect their personal cooking styles, which often involves adding a dash of wine or beer. This is to get the depth of flavour they’re looking for, without the use of additives, for example.
    We do currently have two pies in our range that are alcohol-free – the Saag Pie-neer and Heidi pie. These are on our restaurant and café menus, available online and through selected retailer. And we have made an official note of your request – if we can get the delicious taste we’re after when developing new pies without adding alcohol, we will!

    July 4th, 2018
  108. The Pie Crew

    Hi Steph, yes the free Hurrikane’s are still available this morning – if the match goes into extra time, so do we! It is first come, first served so be quick!

    Are the Hurrikane pies still available today seeming you closed before the game finished yesterday?

  110. The Pie Crew

    Hi Lizzie, there’s hundreds of free pies available when Harry Kane scores a goal, or if the Captain isn’t on the pitch, if England wins. The free pies are first come, first served so keep an eye on our social media channels and head to your nearest Pieminister quickly after our announcements! We reckon they’ll keep the wins coming for the pies alone…

    July 2nd, 2018
  111. The Pie Crew

    Hi Karen, to get your hands on Pieminister pies in Sheffield, you can head to our restaurants on Division Street – otherwise, we’re stocked in many Waitrose stores or online from Ocado. Hope that helps!

    July 2nd, 2018
  112. The Pie Crew

    Hi Nicky, so sorry we must have missed your comment on Twitter. The Hurrikane pie is our pie launched to celebrate the World Cup, and is named after England Captain Harry Kane, which is why that pie is linked to the celebration. There will be lots of promotions coming up which are suitable for vegetarians and also a new vegan pie is on the way. We’re sorry that you might be missing out this time, but there’s lots of exciting things to come.

    July 2nd, 2018
  113. Nicky

    You ignored me when I asked on Twitter, but is there an alternative for vegetarians?

    I just wanted to say that I absolutely LOVE your vegan pie.

    You should definitely make more variations /expand the range.

    Hi Pam, we’re always trying to expand our range and this is something we’re looking into. In the meantime, we do have our Gluten Free Heidi Pie – spinach, sweet potato and goats cheese – which is approved by the Vegetarian Society. Thanks!

    May 15th, 2018
  125. Pieminister

    Hi there, thanks for flagging this. We completely agree and we’re always willing to learn. Our gf pies are Coeliac UK approved, so are suitable for all those who don’t eat gluten for various reasons. That said, we’ve amended the post to make it clearer.

    May 15th, 2018
  126. Pieminister

    Hi Aarti, we do have a couple of gluten-free options for kids: Little Fishy dishy and the Sausage and mash. We do serve a gluten-free Peroni in all of our restaurants and the majority of cafes – hopefully that helps if you’re looking for options next time. Thanks!

    May 15th, 2018
  127. Aarti

    Hi,

    You need to add some gluten free option in the kids menu.

    Also how about adding some gluten free beers in the main drinks menu.

    Thanks

    Coeliac disease is not an “intolerance”, it’s an auto-immune disease. This reiterates a common misconception, underplaying the condition. Please correct in your website summary here…

    Please make a GF version of your Kevin vegan pie – or else some other non-meat GF pie.

    thanks

    Your next gluten-free pie should be the wild mushroom one – I really miss being able to eat that one. Or the fungi chicken which I’ve never tried.

  132. Jonathan Davies

    Hi,
    My husband and I regularly buy your gf ranger and Moo pies when we place our Ocado shop.
    They are definitely the best pies on the market – streets ahead of any competition!

    Couple of suggestions for a new variety? Chicken and mushroom, minced beef and onion, chicken curry, vegetable curry to name but a few!

    One thing we both miss in the way of pastry covered savoury products is a good Sausage Roll. M&S have one that is not too bad but if someone could perfect a gf flaky or puff pastry then that company must bring out a sausage roll! Please! 🙂

    Anyway, please don’t stop the current lines, just add to them!

    Thanks for the great pies though – two customers for life here!!

    May 14th, 2018
  133. Kathy fowler

    Just turned gluten free and love your normal pies so can’t wait to keep living the dream with the gluten free!

    Congratulations. – The best gluten free pastry I have eaten since being diagnosed 8 years ago and the fillings as good as anything I have eaten. Only available to me locally in Sainsbury’s and Waitrose. Look forward to the day when you open a restaurant in my area (South Essex]

    Hello Peter, we’re sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy our first vegan pie. We’re working on some other vegan recipes so hopefully you’ll enjoy one of the others we launch in the future.

    Hello Tarryn,

    Absolutely! That’s one of the many great things about pies; they freeze really well.

    Happy Cooking,

    March 14th, 2018
  151. Tarryn

    Can you make these ahead and freeze them?
    If you can would you defrost first or cook from frozen and for how long?
    Many thanks

    March 13th, 2018

  157. vicki cheriton

    Just tried your Kevin pie from Waitrose, lovely jubbly! Pastry is fantastic and filling is really tasty. Will have to go to one of your restaurants now and try Roots Manuva as that looks really good too. Keep up the good work and thanks very much, we may not eat meat but we still love a pie.

    March 6th, 2018
  158. Tracy

    Just had your Kevin pie, it was lovely, hope you extend your vegan pie range, a creamy leek and potato one would be nice. 🙂

    March 6th, 2018
  159. Tracey Emery

    Kevin looks amazing and really tasty. Well done on making a pie for vegans.
    I am intolerant of onions though, so I can’t partake of his deliciousness. I don’t suppose you’d consider making onion/leek/shallot-free versions?
    All the best with Kevin. I’m sure he has a bright future ahead of him.

    March 5th, 2018
  160. Steve

    I’m a vegan and thought the Kevin pie was fantastic. Please create more vegan pies.

  165. Jenny

    This is delicious! Tried it for the first time last night with some chunky chips and mushy peas, and you have done a great job 🙂 I find it very encouraging that more and more eateries are increasing vegan options, as plant-based eating is so important for our future – ethics, health and environment. Thank you, and I hope more vegan options will soon appear. I will definitely be having “Kevin” again in the meantime!

    Hi there Clive and thank you for getting in touch. Kevin is already available for home delivery on our own online shop (https://www.pieminister.co.uk/shop/category/pies/) and it will also be available through Ocado by next week.
    The Roots Manoova is slightly more difficult as we cook it in cast iron skillets so it’s only available in our restaurants at present. We hope to have another vegan pie for you soon though, which will be online too.
    Hope this helps. All the best from Pieminister.

    February 7th, 2018

    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.

    December 7th, 2016
  250. Sam Walker

    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.

    December 6th, 2016
  251. Arwen

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

    December 2nd, 2016
  252. Romany Simon

    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!

    Romany

    December 1st, 2016
  253. Romany Simon

    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.

  257. Annie Pocock

    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

    November 23rd, 2016
  258. Juli Savage

    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

    November 23rd, 2016
  261. 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.

    November 21st, 2016
  262. Lynne

    Very tasty, lean meat with no fatty bits.

    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.

    Udderly Shaken with those Rolling Stone Guys
    Well Worthy of A Trip to the Farm

    I would love to win because if all those milkshakes bring the boys to my yard then I would love to see what the pies bring !!

    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!

    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)

    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!

  414. Viv Gilbey

    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
  415. 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.

    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,

    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
  426. 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!

  430. 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 🙂

  431. 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?
    😛 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
  433. 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)

    individuals. The sheer size of the expenditure involved and the myriad

  440. […] 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 […]

    March 17th, 2013
  441. This looks lovely, might have a go at making it

    February 8th, 2013

    Your jubilee pie is one of the best things I have ever eaten! It was incredible. I still bring it up in conversations, you have to make this pie part of your range full time. I would love another!

    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!
    REGARDS, BIGBRYN.

    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.’

    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….
