This just might be the best thing I have tasted since I started this topic. It is a piece of

 tourtière from Goûter, @Alleguede‘s Patisserie in Toronto. It was moist and appropriately spiced and I found the pastry to be exactly what I was expecting. I ate one piece for lunch and the second piece for dinner and if there were more I’d have another piece for dessert!

I recall you and/or Karrie having a connection at Cumbrae's

 

If you like touriere's - try theirs out, it is extremely decadent!

There is a Cumbrae's in Dundas - Anna and I have not been there in a good while. I may need to make a trip there to pick one up for experimental purposes.

I really appreciate the link so I hope you won’t take any of what else I have to say as  personal! I know you’re not that thin-skinned.

 

Felicity annoys the hell out of me. There is just too much of a sameness to her columns.  She is wordy. But perhaps she is still on the old system of a penny a word. 
 

So much for Felicity. I have a strong aversion to meat and potato in a pie shell. Too many carbs. Nothing to do with nutrition or dieting. So it seems very reasonable that I would run away a barm pie.
 

thanks again.

 

No problem! I get your aversion to too many carbs, but actually liked the pie in question.

After all, steak  and kidney pie is usually served with potatoes. I think the potatoes cooked with meat are delicious. Think stovies!

A couple of days ago I decided to try the tourtière from the Hamilton Pie Company. I did take a photograph but it was extremely blurry so I will save you the aggravation. @Duvelwill have to sulk. 😂

 

My first clue that this was not going to be one of my favourite pastries was the overwhelming aroma of allspice as soon as I broke the crust..I was able to choke down about half of it before binning the rest.
 

Had it not been for the overuse of the spice I think this might have been quite a good meal. The meat was juicy and plentiful although I think it was all beef. The pastry was good.

There is some big footy game tie breaker happening tonight. State of Origin QLD Vs NSW basically. I'm not going to pretend i'm into sports nor am I going to pretend this is a bakery pie. This is (husbands family tradition) a frozen Balfours  "Footy Pie" lid off, add ketchup. 

 

Abomination. But the boys like it 🤷‍♀️

Trying to redeem myself. I could not sleep last night. Left for the farmers market early - they were still setting up. Grabbed my boys a pie and sausage roll for breakie (pie for breakfast is absolutely normal where I live 😂). These are the pics I took whilst waiting outside for them to finally wake up at 7.

Both reported to be very good, but salty.

I had barely got over the horror of Footy Pie (made even more disgusting by the addition of ketchup) when you suggest something other than sausage should appear in a sausage roll. This is the reason I keep smelling salts close at hand. 😂
