Fry up in a pie, anyone? Restaurant group updates the Full English for #BritishPieWeek
Oxford based restaurant group, House of Jacob, are flying the flag for British Pie Week by offering a ‘pie for all occasions’ from March 6th – 12th. They have created three specials to cover breakfast, lunch and dinner so everyone can get a slice, with their most unique being The ‘Brekkie Pie’ – a full English breakfast. In a pie.
With new research revealing that 75% of people enjoy a pie at least once a month, the brains behind the Brekkie Pie, Executive Head Chef Chris Kennedy, wanted to merge two British favourites into ‘one, delicious union’.
“British Pie Week is music to our ears here at the House of Jacob group. We wanted to do something a little different to celebrate this special week, and what better dish to incorporate into a buttery pastry case than the classic English Fry Up?
We layered tomato, baked beans, black pudding, bacon chop, fried egg and HP gravy into the our vintage John Hunt pie press, so when you cut into it every element is perfectly stacked. We’ll be serving it with a side HP gravy for dipping. They will go perfectly washed down with our Spicy Bloody Mary.”
The group, founded by Damion Farah and Johnny Pugsley, are also offering a Steak & Guinness pie for lunch, and the classic Lemon Meringue pie for dessert.
To try the ‘Brekkie Pie’ (£8.50), visit any of their venues below all of next week between 9am and 10pm:
