Moo Pie!

It was my birthday yesterday and being a Monday and therefore a 'school night' I didn't want to go out but I didn't want to cook either. So I treated us all to whatever took my fancy from my local Waitrose (rather than my usual Asda - sorry Asda). And there I found these fantastic pies.

Pieminster Moo Pies has won awards and is filled with a generous portion of tender british beef and real ale. The pastry is splendid - crisp, not too fatty and lighter than it looks in the pictures.

In 2003 Jon and Tristan started making pies, feeding them to friends and selling them at music festivals. They went down rather well and they opened a little cafe which was really a reinvention of the pie and mash shop. They got attention, a few famous clients and several awards. You can now find them in posh shops and restaurants and my local Waitrose - look out for them you really won't be disappointed.

For those who care about quality (and who doesn't) they contain only free range meat, fresh and natural ingredients, not artificial colourings or flavourings, no hydrogenated fats and everything is sourced responsibly.

Sweeney Todd eat your heart out!
