Food that comes in an edible dish with and edible lid… Pie has got to be the tastiest thing to come out of Ancient Egypt!
Whether you prefer a biscuit type crust and sweet fruity filling or are partial to a flaky hand pie, Pie Day is a day worth celebrating.
What better way to celebrate pie day than to bake and eat, lots and lots of pie?
We have a very long list of favourites for every occasion and every taste, but we’ve gone through the painstaking task of narrowing it down to our top 5 pies for #PieDay which is celebrated on 23 January.
What’s your favourite?
Greek chicken pie
The flaky crust, rustic appearance and a mouth full of flavour with every bite. This is a great family dinner or a lazy weekend lunch to share.
Serve warm for the full experience.
Old fashion peach pie
Gone are the days when a peach pie was a seasonal treat with canned peaches aplenty you can have one whenever you like.
This is a great dessert to bring with you to a dinner party. Served with vanilla ice-cream.
Smoked Fish, Feta and Phyllo Pastry Pie
Cape Town inspired recipe for Smoked Fish and Feta Phyllo Pastry Pie! You can use smoked snoek, angelfish, mackerel, haddock or a combination of smoked fish for this recipe.
Mini Chocolate Pecan Pies
American-inspired recipe for Mini Chocolate Pecan Pies is a great sweet treat. Unlike traditional pies, these pies are topless with a filling pilled on. Think of them as the mini convertibles of pies.
Chakalaka Mince & Potato Crust Pie
A lip-smacking South African take on a traditional British dinner. Not a pie in the traditional sense it has neither a crust nor any type of pastry.
