View Full Version : Sweet or savoury?

13-11-2012, 07:44 PM
I was looking for something in the cookson knowledgebase a little while ago, and came across this priceless piece of information:

Then multiply the inside diameter of the ring size by pie (3.14), and add the thickness of material being used

So, what pie would anyone recommend.

I've been watching too much masterchef, so I'm probably thinking goats cheese at the moment...

Mutton. You're hard pressed to get a decent Scotch pie this far South.

Goats cheese sounds good to me, followed by apple for dessert?

It's quite a small pie, so leave off the lid and fill it with dark chocolate for me.

When in the RAF I served in Scotland for a while and regularly got a Scotch pie with beans from the Naafi wagon so last year while in Scotland ordered a Scotch pie in a chippy it arrived deep fried, it was horrible to this day I am convinced they where making fun of a tourist.

Deep fried Scotch pie? Blegh. Haggis pudding, white pudding and sausages by all means; Mars bars and pizza if you *really* must. Used to know someone who would butter a bap, then cram in a pie & a poke of chips - with ketchup of course...

There's not many bases left up there now; Leuchars and Lossiemouth are the only 2 that spring to mind.

I can kind of get the idea of a pie and chip butty, but deep fried - yuck.

I know Kinloss is going, but is Buchan (and hence Benbecula and Saxa Vord) not still there? And Prestwick of course.

Speaking as one who will put just about anything in a sandwich, a pie and chip one sounds brilliant!

I am fond of a chicken, mustard and tarragon pie with a filo top. Does that still count as pie, or is it a bit poncy...?

Now that sounds nice Lauren. I've just taken some chicken out for tonight's supper as well...

Savoury for me too, but never NEVER give me anything with kidney in, I shall wait till I am old to have the smell of wee in my nose at dinner.
