pie-tastic festival food from Pieminister

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…

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog

Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
