Pieminister - The Royal Pear Commemorative Pie [by @NLi10]

This is the only interaction I had with the Royal Wedding. Essentially I was in the house revising and didn't turn the TV on for around three days so have only ever seen still footage of the happy couple (and the grumpy girl). I wish them all the happiness in the world, but weddings just don't excite me that much.

Pies on the other-hand do.

This is an odd one, it's essentially a posh pear crumble in a pie, and it's part of the new(ish) Pieminister puddings range and is half the height of a normal one. I decided that this was to be shared between two people and graciously let my own future wife eat the other half.

It was nice, and the pastry was great as usual but I was a little underwhelmed. It’s not as sweet, or as tart as I expected, and I guess is as refined as the occasion would suggest. This is a pie for gentry, not dirty old me and my taste for extremely sharp apples. I think pears just don't do it for me and while the choc is nice it's again a little too smooth.

I think that as a one off it was enjoyable, but I'm itching to eat the remaining pudding pie that I have to see how that compares.
