So I’m originally from the north of England.
Five miles outside the town of Wigan.
And At Helens
Google Wigan and pies.
They are famous for them.
Wiganers are known as pie eaters
St Helens has Pimbletts pies.
Wigan pools pies
Greg’s ect the list is endless
This is relevent I promise.
So 16 years ago I move to Wales
South Wales it not the other side of the world around 150 miles from Wigan.
So here’s the thing.
Welsh have cheese and potatoes
You’ll see it on menu’s in cafes
Buy it chilled in local supermarket.
BUT IT ISN’T A PIE!
So dictionary says a pie is a filling encased in pastry.
Well it is in Wigan.
But not here in Wales.
It’s mash potatoes with cheese stired in more sprinkled on top. In a dish.
No pastry to be seen so it’s not a pie!
My Welsh hubby thinks it’s so funny
So come on guys is it a pie or not?
And don’t get me started on rissoles!
