Co-op reduced section has triumphed once more and this rather posh pie (Higgidy Slow Roast Steak and Red Wine, to be exact) cost me just £1.95, reduced from £2.99, though taste-wise it was pie-celess. And I was eating it cold. The friendly folk at Higgidy Pie recommend 25 minutes in the oven, but to hell with that, I was very hungry. The pie looked very in-pie-ting, with an arbitrary sprinkling of some small anonymous berry, which I was sceptical about at first, but was indeed berry tasty. The flavours of the filling married pie-fectly. There was lots of juicy steak, and some truly yummy mushrooms. And indeed so much filling that there was not mush-room for anything else. In fact, I was so distracted by the quality of this damned pie that I only had one bite left before I remembered to take a photo. The photo above, unfortunately, is not even mine, but a chicken pie from Wikipedia. A useless visual aid, since this was a pie amongst pies. A pie-umph. I’d steak this pie home and show it a good pie-m.
