Pieman Pies: savoury and yummie
English Pies with a global touch!
Our savoury Pie is slightly different from the traditional English pie. We love traveling and enjoy to discover food from all over the world. Our favourite global recipes are used to fill the Pies with. For example you will find an African Boboti Pie, a Thai Chicken Pie and a Mexican Jalapeno Pie. Hence, an English Pie with a global touch.
All Pies are available in a regular size suitable for lunch or dinner and a small size (Party Pie) delicious as a snack with drinks or at parties. You can bake-off the Pies in 20 minutes and have a meal on the table in no time.
