I have now returned to Waitrose, and bought another of their lovely hand-made Pork Pies.
It's a fluted pie; not that that makes any difference to its taste, simply its visual appeal.
I did not repeat my purchase of the dreadful Bury Black Pudding!!!
I now see that they're called 'Walkers Pork Pies', and, I learn from their web page, that they are made especially for Waitrose.
I'm also very pleased to say that this second pie lived-up to the standard of the first, and can be recommended 100%. I can honestly say it's the best Pork Pie I've eaten in a very long time. Many may not notice the difference immediately, but I have a degree in Pork Pie eating; and I know what I'm talking about.
Very much a cut above all the other pies I eaten since October, and I would suggest that if you're looking for a quality pie, pop down to your nearest Waitrose, and buy a Walkers Pie from their deli counter. You won't be disappointed.
Price: £2.75p. Enough for four healthy Ascot or Henley appetites.
