Too Good to be Gluten Free Pie Review

Too Good to be Gluten Free Pies
My tame taste tester has been at it again. This time, I've had her trying pies of the gluten free variety for National Pie Week. Here's what she had to say for her little self.

I pride myself on being a proper Northern bird, which, amongst other things, means I LOVE a pie; in fact I believe that most food can be improved by the addition of a pastry crust. So when Rach asked if I would like to try some pies, I was keen to get involved. 
Too Good to be Gluten Free Pies

Too Good to be Gluten Free make a great variety of gluten free products including quiches, pies and sweet treats. We were sent the following pies:
  • Slow cooked steak and ale
  • Red Thai chicken and cauliflower
  • Kale and Stilton open top pie

The steak and chicken pies were ear marked for a big Sunday feast, which I served with chips and peas. The steak was soft and tasty, perfect with a dollop of gravy and chunky chips. The Thai chicken pie was perfectly spicy, filled with tender chicken. The pastry was deliciously short and tasty, and I was very impressed. Needless to say they were demolished in record time!

I cooked the cauliflower, kale and Stilton pie at the same time and took it to work the following day for lunch with a salad. This was my personal favourite, strong Stilton flavour and lovely veg, it was filling, and felt like a real treat. 

I really enjoyed these pies and would recommend them to anyone, they are a nice size so you don't need to feel bad about eating a whole one to yourself! We were very excited to see them in our local supermarket the other week, and I have now got my eye on the dark chocolate and salted caramel tart, droooool!
