Win a Higgidy Pie Party

There is something quintessentially British about the pie. In any poll of favourite British foods, some form of pie is sure to be near the top of the list.

I am a sucker for a tasty pie as much as the next person. From a no-nonsense steak and kidney pie with a huge puff pastry crown to a traditional Melton Mowbray pork pie in hot water crust pastry; from a comforting cottage pie with its topping of creamy mash to an autumnal blackberry and apple pie smothered in lashings of rich custard, the perfect British pie in all its guises is like a warm hug in a dish.

In celebration of British Pie Week (3-9 March), West Sussex based pie-makers Higgidy are hosting a Pie Party and you are invited! I have one special Higgidy Pie Party pack to give away, with everything you need for a pie-themed party.

I am rather partial to a Higgidy pie – I reckon they taste as good as homemade, if not better. They freshly bake their pies by hand every day, and fill them with delicious ingredients just like you or I would use in our own kitchens.

To win a Higgidy Pie Party pack, simply leave a comment below by Tuesday 25 February, letting me know your all-time favourite pie.

The party pack contains party hats, balloons, place cards, and of course, enough meat and vegetarian pies for 12 to enjoy for dinner (or lunch if you’d prefer). What better excuse to get some friends round to share a home-cooked meal, and celebrate the humble but oh so heavenly pie?

  1. My fave ever pie has to be my Grandma’s Corned beef pie – butter in the crust butter in the mash potatoes- DELISH!!! Plus nothing better than pulling up at Grandma’s and smelling that yumminess fresh out of the oven and made with love❤️

  2. I first discover pie when I moved to England. It was acutally love at first bite! My all time favourite is probably is veggie one – with plenty of carrots, corn, sweet pea, mushed potatoes on top and creamy sauce inside 🙂

  3. My favourite pie was a steak, shrimp and prawn pie, that I had many years ago when I was on holiday, it was so tasty I still remember it today. A ‘surf and turf’ wrapped in gorgeous pastry with lovely tender beef that just melted in your mouth.

    Thanks for the give away

  4. My favourite pie is a Chicken and Tangle Ham pie. Tangle Ham being ham hock! I love to fill it with veggies like leeks and asparagus or whatever is in season. If I’m feeling virtuous it works well with filo too!

  5. Love the idea of a pie party. I loved the buffalo and kidney pie I just made, but my favourite has to be chicken and mushroom – using leftover roast chicken, stock from the carcass, chestnut mushrooms and a little cream, yum.

  6. Love the idea of a pie party. My favourite pie is a rich game pie warm with thick gravy and flaky fabulous pastry. GG

  7. My all time favourite pie has got to be a chilli con carne pie I made with a cornmeal pastry! Sounds weird but was out if this world even If I say it myself:)
