5th June. The King of Pies

Returning from Potteric we called at Morrisons in order to get supplies for the weekend. Unfortunately the lure of the pie stall was strong. Fortunately Jo managed to drag me away in time but sadly only to drag me in the direction of a small refrigerated section called "Yorkshire Fayre" where an array of artery bursting goodies was on display including PIES. Drifting in to some kind of trance I came (steady!) upon a selection of Andrew Jones premier pies and selected an un-ticketed 454 gram (1lb) Ploughmans Pie. At £3.29 this was the most expensive pie I have ever bought - but it was worth every penny. Taking just a few minutes to demolish and without the necessary brown sauce that most Pork Pies require I crowned this the King of Pies! The light non greasy pastry and an array of flavours from the delicately cured pork to the sharp Wensleydale complimented by the tangy relish took this pie off the scale and the maximum 10 points does it no justice at all. Andrew Jones we salute you.

Surely you mean £3.29, not £329?! I know you like your pies, but that would be a bit much even for you.
