They don't quite taste the same though


The secret  to any good pie is the pastry. It’s no good having a great filling if the pastry casing tastes like cardboard.

But a great pastry with crap filling is equally as bad. It’s the whole package that counts, had a Vanilla slice yesterday the filling was great, the icing was OK, shredded coconut rather than desiccated, but the pastry was tough, let the whole thing down.

And eating a pie by hand is an art of itself.

Oh and clearly the man is an idiot, I have squirted sauce inside (less likely to drip, I have eaten with a knife and fork, especially when having Veges with it, I have eaten it deconstructed, but best of all is sauce on top and eat it by hand.

We have a Vietnamese owned bakery near me. Brilliant pastry.

 

Filling, not good.

The Vietnamese were influenced greatly by the French (occupation), so their pastry and bread rolls are wonderful.

I certainly did young Brian, Cockles, Whelks, doused in malt vinegar.  Leigh on Sea is a nice little old fishing village, close to the thriving metropolis of Southend on Sea @ Sarfend on Mud.  We were staying with a relative at Thundersley, right near ye olde Bread & Cheese Pub on the A13. You would know of it.

For lunch today, my husband and I had tiddly oggies (pasties) from Ferguson Plairre, a Victorian chain of bakeries. They are by far the best bought pasties we've ever had for a long time. A bit expensive but so good.
