Traditional London Pies
15th of April 2020
London's pie and mash shops and pubs have long served since the 19th century, a traditional pie made with a suet bottom layer filled with minced beef or mutton and topped with a crust of short or puff pastry……to make a pie envelope!
This rather flat pie was then served with liquor, a parsley sauce made with the broth of stewed eels and a splash of vinegar. Although the vinegar sounds odd and conjures up a “yuk” it really adds to the experience….you should try it.
Thing is….is there a market in pubs for this old London fayre?
