2000 Trees_Festival Food_Pieminister - live and eat pie

Festival food has improved massively in the last decade and particularly for veggies where chips, biscuits and dry chewy cheese baguettes was about all you could hope for.  Gladly most vendors now stock a tasty veggie option and occasionally 2 or 3 so I had the satisfaction of umming and ahhing about what to choose as much as the next hungry 2000 Trees festival goer.  I found myself drawn to the Pieminister stand and a Heidi pie (goats cheese, sweet potato, red onion and roasted garlic) with the full works – minty peas, mash and gravy.  I was not disappointed – all the taste, comfort and full up-ness of a sunday roast from a small cardboard box sitting on a hay bale in the beer tent.  Definitely gets my vote for ‘Best Festival Food’ if there is such a poll.

    I agree with you about eating at festivals or outdoor events in relation to decent veggie food.

    This does look good, even the box…

      Mangocheeks – it’s lucky (or unlucky?) we don’t have a Pieminister nearby or I’m sure we’d adopt a weekly pie day. They do mail order pies though…
      Rufus – I look a bit happy with my pie don’t I! I thought since I’m taking photos of other people that I’d have to reveal my identity to the world at some point ;o)

    Ah interesting reason about showing your pretty face. I will still go under my pseudonym for now.

      everyone has been so gracious about letting me snap them it seemed only fair. Just need to find time to post them all up! (ps. do you have a short version of your pseudonym? or perhaps I’ll just adopt MC…

#onefromthearchives in the days when I had time to experiment with preserve recipes and create edible gifts
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #chutneyaddict #allotmentgardening #foragersdelight #preservemaking So totally stoked to receive my #thisisbritainphotobook this morning.  My gut feeling was right - bedtime stories with our Lumie bed bug was the photo chosen by #rankin for inclusion.  Overjoyed to see my beautiful boys in print

I say grew but I actually just forgot about them and they did this all by themselves!
