A West Yorkshire couple ignored years of marriage tradition on their wedding day by opting for a three-tier pork pie instead of a cake.
Joanne Robinson, 39, suggested the special treat for fiance Stuart Booth - a founder member of the Ripponden-based Pork Pie Appreciation Society


The resulting 50lb "wedding growler" was served to guests at their big day in Huddersfield on Saturday. :eek:

Asked if his mother-in-law approved of the plan, Mr Booth said on Friday: "As long as I'm not wearing the pork pie man suit - she won't be bothered."


:hmm:

The Pork Pie Appreciation Society runs an annual competition to find the best pie in the country.

The 2005 event has been put back a few weeks until Mr and Mrs Booth return from their honeymoon in the Lake District.

:lol:

and that suit is special

Pastry round the outside and some kind of clear savoury jelly between the pastry and pork.

Doesn't seem exceptionally heart attacky to me. *shrug*

Proper ones are just nice bits of cooked pork in pastry. Not great for you maybe but there's much, much worse stuff out there.

My nan makes one with pork and jelly. The jelly is made from trotters! Hmmm, trotter jelly...

A decent traditional pork pie is a high quality regional delicacy just as much as parma ham or saucisson sec.

Unfortunately there are lots of bad pork pies just like there is an awful lot of rubbish brie or rubbish cider.

Funko

I think a bad pork pie has probably got less in common with a real pork pie than a bad brie has with good one but yes. You are right.

My mum used to make her own sometimes for Christmas, they were great.

It's amazing how you get used to things. when I was a lot younger I used to love pork pies. Didn't get many of them :p but the occasional one, with a blob of Coleman's English Mustard, was a treat.

Great pastry, tasty aspic jelly, and delicious pork.

Then, due mainly to wanting to lose weight, I didn't have one for years, and when I finally treated myself to one, although the taste was still great, the grease content seemed to have sky-rocketed !

I guess in the intervening period I just became used to less fat in my food.

Still have the rare individual one, about annually now I think.

I think it's just as likely they are making much shitter pies now.

It's the pastry that's the problem. No longer seems as "dry" as it used to be.

North Carolina style is best, but the occasional dry rub on ribs isn't bad.
