    :Eeek: Hi guys and Ladies of course. We went into a pub the other evening and ordered a couple of meals for us. Carolyn had the SeaBass, I ordered the Steak and ale pie! Now ...This is where I got confused!:whatthe: I thought a 'pie' was a pastry shell filled and topped with more pastry? :wasntme:
    Obviously not! It came ...scooped onto my plate with what I can only describe as a ' Puff pastry pair of wings'!
    Is this a pie or not?

    Awful. I can't stand that type of 'pie'. It's a stew with a puff pastry garnish as far as I'm concerned.

    Definitely NOT a pie Kev but seems to be the way pub pies are going. Have had exactly the same experience myself. Mind you that was before I started the 5/2 diet :(

    I think a pie must always have a pastry lid but they don't always have a pastry base. Of course wars have been fought over lesser issues and regional differences will decide which side you are on.

    Ahh you're new aren't you. Nobody's explained that the official MotorhomeFun definition of a pie is that it has to come in a tin and contain unidentifiable animal products (y)

    A pie, if it comes in foil, has a shell and a lid! A pie, if it comes in a dish has a lid, a pile of meat and gravy with a bit of pastry is exactly that, a pile of meat and gravy with a bit of pastry, not a pie at all!!

    When I see a beautiful Rib Eye juicy and mouthwatering I think "thank you cow".

    When I see an FB pie I think "I'm so sorry, whatever you are".

    Of course the triumph of FB is the tin. Finest steel fit for Ferrari. Finest printing worthy of an art galary. Made to incredibly high tolerances.
