i know of a mince-meat (sp?) pie.
Yeah, that's right. It's better with chunks of steak, mince meat is cheap and usually horrible in a pie.Jigga-Scrooge said:i know of a mince-meat (sp?) pie.
Pies of the australian type are very very very good!dondrei said:I've noticed while watching American TV that Americans appear to be largely unfamiliar with the meat pie. When people on it refer to "pie" they seem to always be talking about some kind of sweet dessert thing, apple pie or pumpkin pie (the latter of which was until recently unheard-of here) or something like that.
In Australia when you say "pie" people almost always assume you mean a meat pie. I've never heard anyone call an apple pie just a "pie", and the same goes for fruit mince pies (which are usually only eaten on Christmas) - that's about all the other kinds of pies I can think of. We don't really eat many sweet pies.
Anyway, I was wondering exactly how well-known the meat pie is in America (and Canada too while I'm at it). Are all pies in America sweet?
Me too, a good shepherd's pie is hard to come by though. I had a freshly made one from a proper chef once, that was beautiful.ragnar_ii said:I like shepherd's pie.
Same. You can also buy various flavours, I used to like curry pies back in my bachelor days.quietus said:Our beef pies here have bits of veggies in them sometimes, too. Depends on which brand of pie you buy.
I have never seen a traditional bottom pie crust on a chicken pot pie. It's also pretty rare to find a traditional bottom pie crust on any american pie. Pie's here have been continuously tending toward thinner and lighter crusts all around.dondrei said:Does "chicken pot pie" really mean a pot pie? That is, one without a base (or sometimes apparently a base made out of flaky pastry, I've never seen that though).
Its a pizza pie. So pizza is an adjective that describes the pie, "pizza pie" was later shortened to just pizza in most places and to pie in a few areas. Usually those are famous for a certain style of pizza, from my experience.dondrei said:That one I never understood, how did "pie" come to mean pizza? Strange.
Oh no, pasties are a totally different thing. And then there's sausage rolls.HockeyChic said:We have meat pies here commonly referred to as "Pasties". It's difficult to find a good one, best to do them homemade.
What on earth? They're nothing alike. They aren't cooked the same, one is a dough rather than a pastry (it's more like bread than a pie), the fillings are totally different (never had a pepperoni and cheese pie)...Amra said:Are you serious?
Cooked the same, crust, filling, toppings......
I know, but how did "pie" get connected to pizza at all?The Future now said:Its a pizza pie.
