This type of catering is particularly good for St. George’s Day and British themed events.
These pies are to the original recipe using a unique cold water pastry mix, and by making the pie by hand, the way it has been done in London Pie n Mash shops over the last 160 years. They have however updated the ingredients used, they use spring water and ONLY spring water in all pastry mixes, this was substituted from water drawn by their grandparents from an artesian well in Leadenhall Street EC1. They have also maintained salt levels to the mixes (yes there are two different mixes to the pies) as a reduction of salt affects the taste radically.
Although not essential, they still add lemon juice to the mixes, as this was done years ago to eradicate the taste of fats used in the early 1900’s. About five years ago, they added a percentage of maize to the wheat used for the pie tops, this achieved a pleasing rich reddish brown colouring to the pie, and also made it easier for their speciality of burnt pies (burnt round the edges). A pastry flour made from a blend of wheat and maize is used in the production of short, sweet and savoury pastry. Less fat inclusion is needed to achieve the desired shortness.
