My oldest son, Kimbo, knows my tastes well. Other than a selection of wonderful cheeses, some superb bacon, and a couple of luxury Pork pies, this year he arrived with two of the above.
For anyone who is unaware, these are 'ready to cook' pies, that simply require a tin opener and an oven.
They were, and probably still are, a life-line to many students, who might otherwise exist exclusively on Beer and Pork scratchings. The thought of a Fray Bentos pie on a Sunday was heaven on earth.
The last one I ate was in 2013. I eat them alone because Lady Magnon doesn't approve. More fool her!
