I'm about to tuck into a pork pie. Ask me any questions about British Traditional Food
>>
>>7114716
Did you make it?
>>
>>7114718
Not this one, though I've made them in the past. Not very difficult and the dough used is a very easy, non-challenging recipe.

This one, at least, is from a local butcher shop so it's still hand made and fresh.

if you really wanna be traditional, you should prepare a goose for christmas.

the turkey is an american bird.
>>
>>7114723
Welll, it's not christmas you fuck
>>
>>7114723
That looks like the bird is shitting out some nasty ass faeces.
>>
>>7114732
As opposed to the usual, nice looking faeces.

Well, you know- dark well formed faeces compared to brown mush faeces.

(then pour ketchup all over it)
>>
>>7114761
I don't have a car and the nearest supermarket is at least a 30 minute walk away or means using the bus.
>>
>>7114768
>ketchup

Australians please go. There's no need to ruin a perfectly good pie.

That's a good question. I think it's a combination of a history of invasions and a relatively fuel poor country. Pastry wrapped food is transportable and keeps better for a moving army, and the recipes get picked up by locals. It's also a cheaper and more convenient way to cook if you only have access to communal ovens. You cook your own filling, wrap it in pastry and give it to the village baker while you go off to work for the day, then claim the pie with you mark when you're done.

I mostly pulled that out of my ass though, so who knows?
>>
>>7114782
I've never had a meat pie like you make in bongland. That looks pretty good though. It almost looks like it's filled with sausage, what does it taste like exactly?

I've had steak and ale pie and loads of chicken pot pies, but they were always quite saucy/sloppy and filled with gravy or a similar sauce.
>>
>>7114793
prok pie is tradtional minced (grojund) pork with just minimal salt, pepper and maybe some thyyme. It doesn't taste very similar at all to italian sausage (or any other more flavoured sausage, really)
>>
>>7114793
Pork pie tends to be pretty firm, like reformed ham texture if you imagine a big block of that.
>>
>>7114780
Naw I don't, quite far from it. Any reason?
>>
>>7114808
No, not really acdtually. lol

Weather is shit today. I'm going to be stuck inside I reckon

I always look forward to eating a pork pie (with some piccalillli) but after 3 bites the interest goes.

most pies have a saucy filling - steak and ale, chicken mushroom, etc

pork pie is more of a snack
>>
>>7114892
Can't carry a weeks worth of food for two people on a bike.
>>
>>7114941
You can carry a giant sack of rice on a bike or on your back, just need some attachment points for smaller packages with the other stuff.
>>
I'd kill for a pork pie right now
those salty gelatin chunks <3

Have you ever tried those Pork, Pickle and Cheese pies they do at Morrisons? They're to die for
>>
>>7115476
>Pork, Pickle and Cheese

I need this.
>>
I'm fussy as fuck about my pork pies. I've only ever found 1 place that does them properly.

I like my pastry super soft. Similar to, but not quite, a suet pastry, and I like my filling really moist and juicy.

Bet yours is a rich dry pastry, with a dry meat inside.
>>
>>7115481
If you go to Morrison's deli counter, I think they're 6 for £1.50. They're exactly as delicious as they sound
>>
>>7115491
>Morrison's deli counter

Yeah that's a problem; there's only one large Morrisons that I know of in Bristol, and I'm not going to drive across town to get some pies.

Might need to find a recipe actually, I quite fancy having a try and making my own pork pies.

I had a look online, and I think they have them on Tesco deli counters too. They're not as good as the Morrisons ones, but you can't be picky I guess
>>
>>7115489
well, hot water crust tends to be dry, but the filling isn't as dry as the picture might let on

looks like dad's doing the cooking tonight

Baked Beans?
Not in a can?
What's that all about then?

That is not halal
>>
Not really a fan of them 2bh

unless they're hot and freshly made, then they're fucking deliciious.

When cold they're unappealing, especially the jelly.
>>
>>7114716

Pork pie and salad cream.

Don't think about it. Don't comment. Just try it. Then pass on the message.
>>
>>7114915
those waffles are adorable. what are they called and where do I buy them?
>>
>>7116931
They are called (potato) waffles. Buy them in the freezer section of any supermarket.
>>
>>7116938
damn, they don't have them here. are they just potatoes, but shaped like waffles (sort of like those smiley face potato things I've seen) or are they actual waffles but with some potato in there?

Is venison pie more expensive than pork? I imagine it's more deer
>>
>>7116942
They are essentially the smiley faces in waffle shape. You arent missing out on much. I used to enjoy filling every hole with ketchup as a child.
>>
>>7116928
>>7116931
as Anon said they're potato waffles. For me they taste crap yet induced more nostalgia than any other food I've tried in the last 10 years

The familiar shittiness is a turn on
>>
>>7116953
i think you're wrong about that, but whatever. Keep on thinking you know everything.
>>

So did I, just not in that context.

Feels good man
>>

>paper plate
Is that cockney rhyming slang for something?
>>
>>7119416
No he means serving food on a paper plate literally.
>>
>>7114901
I fucking miss the UK. I'm probably the only person to come back to the State from London and say the food was amazing.
>>
>>7114901
Fuck, they look good!
