Freshly Made to Perfection
I have been making these pies for 10 years plus and have become something of a master at the blind bake, the yolk glaze, and the cooking of the meat. Trust me you will love them.
Only the Freshest Ingredients
What makes a great pie? Unquestionably great produce. We source the finest meat, fish and vegetables exclusively from Scottish suppliers, including the wonderful Shaws of Lauder, Campbells prime of Linlithgow and Mark Murphy.
For all of the rich food and culture myself and Ben have gratefully experienced & savoured throughout our careers our absolute food hero is one of our own home-made Scottish pies. I’ve always been a keen home baker and Ben’s always been a chef so 15 or so years ago we jointly came up the with our all butter puff pastry, deep filled pies, I looked after the pastry and Ben developed the fillings. We happily kept those pies to ourselves and enjoyed making them for friends and family when time permitted. Around 10 years ago Ben started preparing a version that he sold in the varying establishments he was working in. They sold like hot cakes, we knew at that point there may be a future opportunity to sell direct to the public though we never seemed to find the time to make this happen.
Ben recently made the huge step to open his own Inn and was having a grand time until world health intervened. He along with the wider hospitality industry had to close their doors. Whilst this closure is temporary it did present us both with some rare free time. Much of our free time has been spent with our daughters which has been wonderful, mostly….! I’ve also managed to make time to bake pies for friends and family members who have been stuck indoors, unable to leave home due to the lock down. It struck me midway through a baking session that whilst we wait for a health green light, I should step up production and offer to sell my pies to the wider public.
So here they are, my deep filled puff pastry pies for you to buy direct, all Scottish sourced ingredients, ready to bake and enjoy in your home. I’ve kicked off with a selection of our family favourites but hope to add a wider range, time and demand permitting. They are delivered direct to your door from mine, contactless payment and prepared in a fully fitted and certified professional kitchen.
I Sincerely hope your family loves them as much as mine do.
Pentland pies, from our kitchen to yours.
