One of me absolute favourite Human Food is a pie. Now for you Americans out there who think a pie is something sweet, like Apple pie: No way, these are MEAT pies people. Yep filled with yummy beef, lamb, pork, chicken, even seafood.
Having said that, there was the time back when we lived in Germany when Grumpy-Human decided due to a lack of locally available pies to make his own… Now this was always going to end in disaster of course coz he can’t cook. But even worse he can’t read German either and bought some pastry from the local Aldi supermarket but not understanding the label “Süßes Gebäck”. On the plus side I scored sweet meat pies for a week coz no one else would eat them!
The recipe for savoury pies is pretty simple really, a short crust pastry and a nice filling of meat and gravy sauce. Last month in Australia the annual great pie baking competition was held by the BAA (Baking Association of Australia) for the 2019 best pies, check out the link. Maybe next year they will let me be a judge eh.
Now unfortunately for me Grumpy-Human being a big fan of pies, as evidenced by this T-Shirt, usually scoffs the lot leaving nothing for me.
However today I was able to sample a chicken and a beef curry pie, I guess he was feeling generous…
Although not award winning pies they are from a local baker and are pretty delicious none the less.
Until next time
