As today is International Women’s Day I’ve decided to share a flavoursome dessert pie which I imagine lots of women used to make at family suppers.

This cherry pie is a real treat and tastes even better is you use cherries which you’ve picked yourself. But don’t worry about this too much as any well sourced cherry will be fine- you might have to wait until summer for perfectly ripe cherries.

I like to serve my cherry pie with cream but I know other prefer ice cream- the choice is yours. Enjoy!

British Pie Week 2012- Cheese and Onion Pie

Today I’m sharing a pie recipe which everyone will enjoy, a classic cheese and onion pie with wholemeal pastry. This pie is perfect if you’re feeding vegetarians or looking for a simple dish for a family supper.

Make the recipe your own by adding a variety of cheeses- the cheese selection is totally up to you.

I like to serve my cheese and onion pie warm with a selection of seasonal veggies but if you’ve got grandchildren around serve with a helping of baked beans. To me the beauty of this pie is that it can be served cold too. I wrap up any left over for lunch and enjoy with a hearty chutney- yum!

British Pie Week- Levi Roots Spicy Caribbean Cottage Pie

To celebrate British Pie Week today I’m sharing a recipe which takes a spicy twist on a British classic.

Levi Roots’ Spicy Caribbean Cottage Pie is the ultimate fiery pie as his famous Reggae Reggae sauce adds a kick of Caribbean flavour to the family favourite giving the dish a new lease of life.

I thought that this Caribbean inspired pie was very fitting as Prince Harry is currently in Jamaica carrying out royal duties to celebrate The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. I hope that you enjoy and if you’re feeling brave may I suggest sprinkling a few dry chilli flakes into the potatoes topping for extra zing.

British Pie Week 2012

It’s British Pie Week and to celebrate I’ll be sharing some of my favourite pie recipes this week- I did the same last year and it was a great success, you can read 2011’s recipes here. For British Pie Week 2012 I’m hoping to share classic pie recipes which are firm family favourites alongside recipes that are a little bit more adventurous. Spicy pies, veggie pies and even pies with a splash of alcohol.

Before I open my recipe book I have to comment on how well loved British Pie Week has become. Quite astonishing the simple supper of pie and mash has been reinvented into a trendy and fashionable meal of choice. Fancy pie and mash has even become the selling point of many newly established eateries.

My favourite is Pieminister, a Bristol based company who have cleverly crafted a menu of signature pies which they serve with creamy mash and silky gravy. I regularly visit their Pie Minister branch in Trentham Garden’s which is only a stone’s throw away from home and guaranteed to be delicious.

Capitalising on their love of pie the Pieminister team are celebrating British Pie Week 2012 by travelling across the country (from Bristol to London and back) in their ice cream turned pie van called Kenneth. Generously they will be dishing out scrummy pies to passers-by.

This enthusiasm and love of such a traditional meal is brilliant to see and will hopefully encourage people to make their own delicious pies at home. One of my favourite homemade pies is a classic Chicken and Mushroom pie. This hearty classic is easy to make and reasonably cheap- perfect for families. My top tip is to ensure you use chunky pieces of chicken and plenty of seasoning.
