SEARCH FOR MOST BEARD FRIENDLY PIE TAKES PROLETARIAN ROAD
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that as the annual poll on the most Beard Friendly Pie of the year as part of British Pie Week draws to a close, there is a shift towards traditional proletarian style pies.
With voting set to close at midnight on Sunday Macaroni pie leads the poll with butter pie (potato & onion) second.
The hirsute campaign group say that as with many prepared foods the requirements of people with beards are often overlooked when it comes to pies.
The BLF says that common issues with pies for those with beards are:
Puff or flaky pastry which ends up in the beard not the mouth
‘Deep filling’ making it difficult to avoid contact of the pie with the beard
The campaigners cite some types of the traditional steak and kidney pie as an example of pies which are made without thought for the requirements of the hirsute pie consumer. Such pies often have excessive gravy- and comparatively little steak and kidney- which ends up in the beard
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said we continue to pursue the ultimate beard friendly pie. The trend this year seems to be towards more humble proletarian pies that not only can be eaten on the move but also do not make a mess of the beard when being eaten.
The poll closes at midnight on March 12th with the result announced at midday on March 13th
