No one knows the true origin of the term ‘Whist Pies’ but it is thought to have come from the Wigan area and these 2 bite pies were eaten whilst playing (yes, you guessed it!)… Whist.
I certainly wasn’t playing cards when I ate my beef filled pies from Sixsmith’s Bakery in Edenfield, and more importantly I didn’t want them to be finished in 2 bites.
These perfectly sized ‘snack’ pies are delicious with a hearty meat, and the next time I pass Sixsmith’s bakery I think it’ll merit a larger order.
A very good 8.8
