I posted last year about visiting Pieminister's shop in St Nicholas's market with my parents but last Tuesday me and my flatmate went to their fancier more restaurant style shop in Stokes Croft for the 'Free Pie' event which was part of Cattle Drive; Pieminister's fundraising campaign for Send a Cow. They are aiming to raise £40,000 and help to kick start 30 farms in Africa.
We were lucky to get there at prime queuing time and only had to wait for ten minutes despite the fact that over 300 people attended the event! We also ended up donating pretty much the full price of our pie anyway so I think the fundraising concept was pretty successful too.
I chose the Heidi Pie (my all time fave) which is goats' cheese, sweet potato, spinach and red onion. Drooool. Jess had the Free Ranger Pie which consists of "free range British chicken and outdoor reared ham hock with leek and west country cheddar".
