Sadly his pie provider is no more. So I offered to look for the perfect chicken pie to replace his loss. Abel&Cole came to the rescue with their chicken, mushroom & leek pie.
What did George think?: "good, this pie is good" indeed it has all the necessary ingredients, chunky chicken pieces, smooth sauce and lots and lots of vegetables. The only problem is the crust, though very nice too it is rather thick. We marked it out of 10, it scored a magnificent 7.
But let me tell you what: in my tasting box along with my order of wild partridge (more of this later), there was a little gem which I would recommend to all to try it is the Savoury Seed Oatcakes Village Bakery. In their little individually portioned pack, they are just flavoursome enough not to overpower the topping. Definitely 10 out of 10.
