A short post for all you food lovers but I thought I should tell you about the Kiwi love of pie. The Australians also harbour this love.
Seems ridiculous eh?
I know people who admit to eating pie at breakfast (bacon and egg pie is a popular variety), I know people who eat pie regularly for lunch. No doubt there are also those who eat pie regularly for dinner too!
There are shops which sell nothing but pies. There are huge varieties of pies available. For some reason they like to put cheese in pies (mince and cheese…steak and cheese…why??? I have tried one so I can take a bit of high ground and, while nice to eat, I was not at all convinced that steak and cheese (with gravy) really belong together but there you go). Anyway, no photos to show you because that would involve my eating lots of pies, and it can never be claimed that I have eaten all of the pies!
Suffice to say that generally, if you find a pie without too much cheese, the pies are generally pretty damn good!
(And if anyone likes pie-related songs, listen to “The Wigan Church of Pies” by The Lancashire Hotpots on Spotify…it’s an amusing pie-treat!)
