It’s British Pie Week

British Pie Week

It’s like a volcano of pie, whereby the crust represents the mountain, and thus, by deduction, the meat filling is the lava flow

British Pie Week starts today, so we thought we’d pay homage to this popular food item that most Brits like to get their laughing gear around.

To kick off, The Express has featured the top 10 facts about pies. It’s truly an eye-opening list. For example, did you know that the only Oscar-winning film with pie in its title was the cartoon Tweetie Pie in 1947? We didn’t … but that’s really handy for our next pub quiz night.

Need more? OK, The Telegraph weighs in on 10 things you never knew about pies. Unlike the list above, on this one we did know that the British take their pies very seriously. Obvs.

Pieburger. Just say it a few times and let the concept sink in. It’s the result of a sweet night of lovin’ between a pie and a burger. You want one, don’t you? No probs. Here’s how to make a pieburger.

And here’s (old-ish) lists of the best meat pies in Toronto, Toronto’s best pie shops and where to find delicious pies in Toronto.

So, what’s for lunch today?
