#WIN Higgidy goodies to celebrate British Pie Week!

March 2, 2015


Just in case you hadn’t heard already it’s British Pie Week this week folks, hooray! Now there’s a foodie event most worthy of celebrating. It probably goes without saying but we’re rather partial to a pie here at Eat Your Veg HQ, so naturally we’ll be celebrating in pie-tastic form. All three of us love a pie but Frannie’s crazy about them, they rock her six year old world and are unquestionably, invariably her number one food ever. For her last birthday party we even had to have pie, for which Β I made three enormous puff pastry topped beauties. Her current fave being my ever-so-slowly braised beef cheek ‘Love Pie‘.

Eat Your Veg | Chunky Chilli Fish PieLast Autumn I took part in the Higgidy Recipe Hunt to create a brand new pie filling with my Chunky Chilli Fish Pie. It sadly didn’t win, but then there were over six hundred entries, no kidding! And just goes to show quite how many people love a pie. The winning entry I must confess most definitely got my vote, Hand Pulled Pork & Sweet Potato no less. Filledimages with British pulled pork in a rich smoky tomato sauce and topped with a heap of roasted sweet potato mash. Higgidy kindly sent a few for us to try out and we were suitably impressed. A truly delicious melt-in-the-mouth combination, and impressive to see a veggie based topping in place of pastry. And perfectly spiced to not be overbearing for the little ones either. Shame. The new pies are now available in Higgidy retailers which include Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Ocado, Booths, Budgens, Co-Op and Asda. Go find.

To help you celebrate Pie Week this year, West Sussex based piemakers Higgidy are giving away some exciting prizes to help you make delicious pies in your very own kitchen. All you need to do is enter below via the Rafflecopter widget for a chance to win a copy of The Higgidy Cookbook, featuring 100 recipes for pies and more, and a Higgidy apron. What better excuse is there to cook up a storm in the kitchen and impress your friends and family with your pie baking skills? And, in case you don’t feel like cooking, they’ve also popped in Β£15 of Higgidy vouchers, so you can pick up some of their delicious pies from the supermarket to enjoy at home.

Higgidy believe there is nothing better than homemade, which is why they bake their pies in small batches, fill them with ingredients just like you would use in your kitchen at home and finish every one by hand.

    My favourite is a slimmer’s fish pie! Smoked mackerel and prawns with some lemon juice, pepper, milk, crΓ¨me fraiche and creamed horseradish, then topped with steamed cauliflower mashed with a bit of grated cheddar, and a sprinkle of cheese on top! Scrummy!

  2. Jennifer Bailey

    Any sort of vegetable pie. Used to eat chicken pies but got feed up giving the cat all the chicken( she does the puss in boots eyes!) so though I might as well swap to vegi ones!
