Why are the pies so expensive?

These are not just your ordinary pies! We make our pies and squiches with the same care and quality that you and I do in our own kitchens, we don’t use additives to make the pastry quickly, we use a fridge and let it relax overnight. We use butter and enrich our pastry with free-range eggs, most pie makers use margarine because it’s cheap. All our meat is hand cut by master butchers, not machinery and we work really hard to source our ingredients as locally as we can with the majority of our meat, milk and cream being organic and coming from the Goodwood Estate.

Can you microwave the pies?

We’ve created the pies with outstanding quality ingredients and the pastry really does taste amazing when cooked in the oven but if you really can’t wait, you could give your pie a couple of minutes in the microwave, just check it’s piping hot in the middle but honestly, a microwave doesn’t do it justice.

Is the meat halal?

Our meat is not Halal but the majority is single sourced and is organic from the Goodwood Estate. Organic farming is recognised as having particularly high standards of animal welfare, the animals are not routinely and indiscriminately administered anti-biotics and steroids and are all naturally outside bred. Our chicken is British and free-range.

Can the pies and squiches be cooked from frozen?

Yes, all our products freeze beautifully and if freezing your pies and squiches, we would recommend cooking from frozen. All the details are supplied with your order, with cooking instructions usually on the box but to summarise, we recommend that you pre-heat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan) gas mark 4, remove all packaging, place squiche or pie on preheated baking tray and cook for 45-50 minutes from frozen.

Is the meat organic?

The Beef and Lamb is organically reared from the Goodwood Estate and is all hand cut by their master butchers. The chicken is British and free-range. The game is naturally free to roam the South Downs and comes from South Downs Venison.

Does the pastry have egg in it?

Yes, we enrich our luxury shortcrust pastry with local free-range eggs and we also glaze our pies with egg too but the Squash, Spinach and Feta (vegan) pie is 100% meat and dairy free. Our packaging also declares it as an allergen.

All our pies and squiches contain either onions or leeks with the exception of the Roasted Vegetable and Feta Squiche
