|Spiced Ham, Honey Roast Parsnip and Chestnut|
Wandering through town on an unrelated errand and stumbled upon the Great North Pie Co stall at local market. Oh happy days, what a selection of mouth watering recipes to tempt the dieting Pie Tribe!!
First up the Spiced Ham, Honey Roast Parsnip and Chestnut Pie. Their description on the leaflet ( excellent idea pie makers please note) provided was "Slow roast with clove and cinnamon, honey roast parsnip, roast chestnuts, mustard and horseradish cream, lemon,sesame and Paxo stuffing breadcrumbs" If that doesn't get your taste buds salivating I don't know what will.
The collective Pie tribe gave this a 9/10 without much debate or argument. Pastry just right held together but not thick. Pie full to the brim no air gap whatsoever and a filling that justified the description. Tasty ...oh yes. Not cheap, but easily a meal in itself.
