I'm about to tuck into a pork pie. Ask me any questions about British Traditional Food
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.
Well, you know- dark well formed faeces compared to brown mush faeces.
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?
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.
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)
I always look forward to eating a pork pie (with some piccalillli) but after 3 bites the interest goes.
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.
>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.
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?
>i think you're wrong about that
>Keep on thinking you know everything.
The fucking irony is overflowing.
