    British Pie Week March 2017 : The Low Carb Way

    Pie Week 2017 : The Low Carb Way

    Well this week is British Pie Week, 6th to 12th March, and if you are a diabetic, or someone who is watching their carb intake, it may not be good news!!!

    I believe the USA and Canada have a National Pie Day in January. Meanwhile in Australia and New Zealand they have annual meat pie contests ...

    After you've read the facts below ... and think ... I'd love to eat/make a pie, I've given some ideas to some low carb recipes.

    "It's British pie week, check out these fun pie facts

    7 facts you need to know about pies!
    1. The oldest pie filling and indeed recipe is Goats cheese and honey. This dates to the second century B.C, later the Egyptians used a filling of honey or figs.
    2. In the 12th Century the most common filling for pie was fowl, with the legs hanging out to use as handles to eat the pie.
    3. Meat pies appeared as early as the 12th Century in the UK. The crust of the pie was referred to as a coffin, which were given to servants or beggars.
    4. Fruit pies or tarts were first made in the 1500s. English tradition credits with the first cherry pie to Queen Elizabeth I.
    5. In 1644 Oliver Cromwell banned the eating of pies as a pagan form of pleasure, restoration leaders lifted the ban on pie in 1660.
    6. 75 per cent of the British public enjoy eating pie at least once a month. 79 per cent of people are willing to pay more money for a homemade pie.
    7. The most expensive pie sold for a staggering £8,195 which is £1,024 per slice to only 8 guests in 2005 at the Fence Gate Inn, Lancashire. The filling was wagyu fillet of beef with matsutake mushrooms a £4,000 of premium red wine."

    Bacon.Mushroom and blue cheese-Awesome combo imo...This would be definitely one for me and my son who are crazy for blue cheese,be it on it's own or in any recipe,sadly my wife and daughters have an irrational fear of the thought of blue cheese (They've never tried it sigh)but I'm working on it as the salty,tangy and creamy goodness which can only be found in a blue cheese is one life's little pleasures for sure! thumb-up

    Someone (I think not Jan for once!) recommended I try Delice de Bourgoigne which has rather the texture of Brie but a faint salty tang of blue cheese about it. That might be worth a try though I don't know how it would hold up to cooking.

    This sound great Chris ...

    "Délice de Bourgogne is a French cow's milk cheese from the Burgundy region of France. It was first created in 1975 by Jean Lincet at Fromagerie Lincet. It is a soft-ripened triple-cream cheese. The cheese is rich and creamy due to the cheese-making process where cream is added to the milk during the cheese process (see "Triple cream")."

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%A9lice_de_Bourgogne

    If you read more at the link it even gives wine pairings for this cheese ...
