First Mince Pie 2014

Leave a comment

Every year our first Mince Pie needs to be amazing. Any Mince Pie after doesn’t matter – but the first one always needs to be epic (this has become a Christmas tradition). We assumed that we would be on to a winner at the Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market – but alas, Germans do not seem to go in for fruit-based-sweet-pies. We set off enthusiastically around Leyton, then on to Walthamstow in search of a local cafe/bakery but it was all to no avail. FINALLY, Patisserie Valerie in Covent Garden came up trumps! 

Best Mince Pie 2014

The sweat, thick, crunchy pastry tasted like shortbread biscuits. The mincemeat was really moist and perfectly balance with the fruit and spices. The pie was stuffed to the brim with Christmas. It was all worth the wait – if you find yourself in Covent Garden – get one!
