It's a time to celebrate all things encased in pastry, a true honour of what is a great British culinary institution.
This year, British Pie Week runs from 6th – 12th March and is the perfect time to get acquainted with with the pie-fect producers in The Artisan Food Trail.
Something enticing enclosed inside a crisp rich pastry shell never fails to please. A hot pie is the ultimate comfort food during winter, fresh from the oven, the contents bubbling within and when the crust is broken a sudden gush of steam delivers its appetising aromas to eager hungry diners.
A pie can be eaten cold too which of course makes it perfectly portable and just right for any picnic.
Pies can be as simple or as complicated as you wish. You don't even need a recipe – just pastry and your imagination… or you could buy one from our great artisan food producers…
