Pieminister: Live & Eat Pie!

Pieminister is a sustainable pie making business from Bristol, U.K. Their award-winning range includes plenty of plant-based and gluten-free recipes, and their business puts a major emphasis on animal welfare and sustainably sourced ingredients. Pieminister was founded in 2003 by brothers-in-law Tristan Hogg and Jon Simon, when they set up their shop in Bristol. Tristan made the pies and Jon ran the shop. Their exceptional pies meant the brand grew swiftly, and now employs 300 people and runs 16 restaurants across the UK. And now they’ve just released their first book, Pieminister: Live & Eat Pie! (Kyle Books, 2023), a collection of recipes from classics like Chicken & Ham or Steak & Ale to unique combinations such as Tofu, Leek & Smoked Garlic or Paneer, Potato & Chili and everything in between. There’s Mushroom Wellington, Pie Na Colada (a spin on Tarte Tatin) and even a Deep Pan Pizza Pie. Whimsical, charmingly illustrated and endlessly inviting, the book covers pastry basics along with easy-to-follow recipes, including vegan and gluten-free options. Along with the recipes, this book also demystifies sustainable food, making it easy and attainable. From fighting waste and finding truly deforestation-free fats for pastry-making to getting to grips with truly sustainable packaging, this book reveals all the wisdom gained over the past 10 years at Pieminister. The bottom line? It’s a cookbook that’s useful, compelling and most of all, lots of fun.
