Beef and Chestnut Pie Recipe:

Let’s kick off with a classic favourite – the Beef and Chestnut Pie. This savoury delight features tender chunks of beef paired with earthy chestnuts, all encased in a flaky golden crust. The richness of the beef melts perfectly with the subtle sweetness of the chestnuts. Whether you decide to enjoy this as a cosy dinner at home or as the centrepiece of a special family occasion, this pie encapsulates its heartiness.

Rainbow Pie:

Next up, we have a pie that’s as visually stunning as it is delicious – the Rainbow Pie. We recommend this perfect pie for Easter gatherings or if you’d like to try something different, this masterpiece is a true showstopper. With layers of vibrant vegetables, including butternut squash, Jersey Royal potatoes, beetroot, asparagus, and roasted peppers, which are nestled between flaky filo pastry. Topped with a zesty salsa verde, this pie is a celebration pie for British Pie Week. It’s a must-try!

Mixed Berry Shortcake Pie:

For the sweet-tooth, we have the sweet finale, and our Mixed Berry Shortcake Pie. Bursting with the fresh flavours of strawberries, blueberries, and rhubarb, this dessert pie is a delightful treat. The buttery shortcake base provides the perfect canvas for the juicy berries, while a dusting of icing sugar adds a touch of sweetness. Whether served warm with a dollop of whipped cream or enjoyed on its own – the choice is yours!
