Pie: Meat and Potato
Temperature as eaten: Hot
Smith’s Bakers and Confectioner is another one of those places that you pass by in the car regularly and say to yourself, “I must stop one day and see what delights they have on offer to the pie eaters of the world”. Well, finally, I was passing at an appropriate time to stop, so I did just that and purchase a pie while on my way back from picking up some “lockdown essentials”.
I chose a Meat and Potato pie for no other reason that it was first on the list when I asked the shop assistant what was freshly baked that day. I took the pie home, popped it on a plate and set about devouring my lunchtime treat. The pie was a good size and a good depth, the pastry was crisp and even and help the pie contents well. The filling was, as is usual, more potato than meat, but the mince in the pie was well seasoned and the potato not too salty at all. There was no air gap which made the pie really easy to eat with either a knife and fork (which I abandoned after cutting a first wedge), or by hand. This pie would be a good snack pie when you are on the go as it was tasty but the contents didn’t dribble down your chin, which can be a good thing, especially if you have a beard.
A tasty, compact, filling snack and perfect to eat while you walk towards Spotland watch the mighty Rochdale A.F.C. take on their footballing opponents in League 1.
