Pie!

So what constitutes a pie?

I'm fucking adamant that a pie is not a pie unless it has a pastry case and a lid. The Mrs says it only needs a lid to be a pie.

Such stuff is fucking fighting talk.

So whats a pie and whats not a pie?

What was that white stuff in Fray Bentos pies that didn't quite deserve the description of pastry? Just underneath the crusty and dried out [read burnt] lid? Were those nasty Argentinians at it even back then or was my mother truly a shit cook?

One is a 'cased pie' the other a 'lidded pie', that was what I was taught anyway.

The things that aren't really a pie IMO is the ones with a bit of beef/horse slurry ladled into a dish and with a pre-formed 'lid' baked on a tray and then whacked on top. A favourite of motorway services and grotty chain pubs.
