This week saw a new pie eating volunteer travelling to South Yorkshire to try a pie and watch the Ice Hockey. Charlotte, sister Jess’ real sister (how confusing!), went on the 27th of September to watch the Steelers battle against Milton Keynes Lightning.
On arrival Charlotte was on the move to not only find her seat, but also to find a crackin pie. At first, she felt the pressure and couldn’t find the correct food stand, however after calming herself down she the pie shack.
The newest connoisseur opted for the meat and potato pie with mushy peas for £4.50 (extra pound for the peas). But the big question is, what did she think to it?
Charlotte commented that the pastry was ‘slightly soggy’ and that the pie had a ‘limited amount of meat’. Whether or not this is down to the mushy peas that went with it we will never know. However Charlotte said that the peas were ‘watery’. Overall, it was a ‘good sized portion’ with ‘lots of potatoes’.
The match ended 4-3 to the Steelers, keeping them top of the table in the Elite League.
Pie Rating: 2.5/5
