Let's Paint the town Red!

The great British Pork Pie is most associated with Melton Mowbray,in Leicestershire. Over a hundred years ago - one can only suppose after a few too many pork pies - some aristocrats that were visiting town for a hunt ran amok in the town centre with some cans of red paint. And that's where the expression comes from. These pies come from Southwark Market, just south of London Bridge, and they are as good as they look.

Does it really say 9 pounds for one of these?


Blogger Ham said ... (19:22) : 

Michael, yes they are! And probably worth it, too. They work out about twice the price (weight for weight) as a good supermarket pie.

Can't wait until we have the technology to deliver the goods, not just the photo, digitally!
