London, Pork Pie

The man at the market explained to me that these are best enjoyed cold with a nice glass of beer. They are also nice cut into wedges and served at apéro with a glass of Lillet. They certainly aroused my curiosity, and I wondered which were best. All of the butchers had them too.

The best thing about pork pies is the pastry! I personally don't like the jelly, but a good well made pork pie is hard to beat. Nice with another English thing, salad cream!

what synchronicity -- I was browsing through the River Cottage Meat book, and saw recipe for a full-size version of this sort of pork pie. But although I vowed to make it someday it's way too much for the two of us. But the little mini one of yours is adorable! Hm, maybe I can adapt the recipe...

This one was nice picnic food. The pastry is made with lard, which makes it have its own special texture and flavor.
