Do the pies contain sugar?

The only product that we add sugar to is the red onion marmalade squiche.

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.

Do you do meat and potato pie? Do you do cheese and onion pie? Do you do pork pie?

No unfortunately we don’t do meat and potato, cheese and onion or pork pies currently, BUT keep an eye on our store because we introduce limited editions at various times throughout the year

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.

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.
