To celebrate British Pie Week, our GCSE Food and Nutrition cohort made the country’s favourite dish.
Chicken has been voted top savoury pie by 33% of people living in the England, closely followed by Cottage, fish and Shepherd’s.
Our Y9 students added mushrooms to the savoury dish and finished with a puff pastry lid, while the Y10s opted to make hand pies to further challenge their technical skills.
British Pie Week was started by pastry manufacturer, Jus-Rol, in 2007. It celebrates the nation’s love of pies and encourages families to cook and eat together.
Across the UK, Cottage and chicken tied for top spot, with apple taking third place. 38% of people living in Wales voted Cottage pie their preferred choice, as did 35% from Northern Ireland. Steak is the favourite filling for the Scottish population.
