What's a Lol Pie?
I'd love a good Wigan meat and potato pie, can't get then any where as good as Wigan


Comment by dc on 5th January 2012 at 07:13

I can see Russel Grant gazing out of the stars!


Comment by John Morris on 5th January 2012 at 10:28
Made me smile. It looks a bit like Tintin! Perhaps he was from Wigan and not French at all!


Comment by pat on 5th January 2012 at 10:45
Made me smile straight back at it!!


Comment by Cyril on 5th January 2012 at 13:09
A smiley pie - nice one. Remember those small oval jellied Bridge Patties folks bought for parties etc, haven't seen any of those for years.

John, Tintin was Belgian. :~)


Comment by Cyril on 5th January 2012 at 14:00
They're not Bridge patties, I've now remembered they were called Whist patties.


Comment by Maria on 5th January 2012 at 14:36

Whist Pie

A whist pie is simply a small meat pie.

Geography

The term seems to belong to Wigan and nearby districts.

Colin
Usual question ! Was it a Galloways?


Comment by incer71 on 7th January 2012 at 13:07
we might be wigan pie eaters but there are not many good pie makers no more galloways yuk, pooles yuk mass produced rubbish,greenalles good but think they mite be made in bolton


Comment by Colin Harlow on 7th January 2012 at 16:08
Yes Tricia, it was a Galloways chunky steak, it went down well with a pint.
Incer71, people have different taste in life, you may like a certain pub or chipshop other people might not, but one things for sure there were no pies left on the table after midnight, on that new years eve party....and a bit of history for you Incer71, Galloways pies are born and bred in Wigan, the first being on Ormskirk rd, in 1971, it was called "The Pie Shop".


Comment by tricia on 7th January 2012 at 16:38
We can get Pukka (should be Yukka) pies here and some called Wrights (should be wrongs!!!)
I still recall Hurst's pies from Church St, Orrell and my relatives, the Sellars Pies, but Galloways will do anytime for me especially the Butter ones, flat minced steak ones and the Meat and Potato ones.
As for the Grennhalghs (?) What dogs doo doos the ones I bought in a certain shop going out of town. My 2 dogs turned their noses up at them as well.
Hope you enjoyed your N Years 'do'
Colin.
Happy New Year to all.


Comment by incer71 on 8th January 2012 at 22:50
colin i didnt mean galloways were not from wigan, im saying pies in wigan are not what they used to be like,are you sure that pie was real,it looked like a plastic pie,could of been produced at tupperwer now there not from wigan,

Comment by Colin Harlow on 10th January 2012 at 19:49
