Pieminister Gluten Free Pies


Having lived in Bristol for over 10 years now, one of the best things it has produced is definitely its Pieminister pies! I always loved having a Heidi pie (goats cheese, spinach and sweet potato) but after being diagnosed as a coeliac four years ago, these became a thing of the past.

That was until Pieminister recently introduced their gluten free pies!¬†Only three of their pies are gluten free at present, but one of them just so happens to be the Heidi pie! Wahoo! ūüôā

Pieminister kindly offered me the chance to try their gluten free pies Рthere was no way I could say no to that!

Before I get on to the review, here’s a little bit more about their gluten free pies, taken from their website:

We‚Äôve spent the best part of a year¬†rolling, mixing, tasting and baking to create Gluten Free¬†Moo and Heidi pies. ¬†And proof that they taste just as great as their non-GF counterparts, they both¬†triumphed in the 2016 British Pie Awards.¬†Taking first place in the Free From Class, the Gluten Free Heidi was crowned Class Champion, making it officially the best gluten free pie in the UK. The Gluten Free Moo was placed in the top three ‚ÄėFree From‚Äô pies in Britain, winning a Gold Medal and the ‚ÄėHighly Commended‚Äô title. Continue reading


The Stable Bristol

Well, I am pleased to say that just before Christmas I met up with some¬†friends at The Stable, and enjoyed a spectacular gluten free pizza! Here’s my full review… Continue reading

The Stable Bristol – Launch Night

the stable logoLast night I was lucky enough to be invited along to the launch night of¬†a new restaurant located on Bristol’s waterfront, The Stable Bristol.

As you can see from their logo, The Stable sells pizza, pies and cider and a huge variety of them at that!

If you’ve not heard of The Stable brand before, here’s a little bit more information about its concept, and the Bristol opening:

Since the opening of the first Stable in Bridport, Dorset in 2009, The Stable Bar and  Restaurant has grown from strength to strength, inspiring cider drinkers far and wide. Founders Nikki and Richard Cooper (who also own successful boutique hotel The Bull) are proud to serve stone-baked gourmet pizzas topped with locally sourced ingredients, complimented by over 57 varieties of cider! They stick with what they know and concentrate on the finer things in life: food, drink and great customer service.

Having won awards for its pizzas (PAPA Awards) and cider (CAMRA best cider bar) The Stable naturally attracts a lot of attention both from locals and out of town visitors who love the emphasis on the West Country; both the cider and produce are sourced as locally to each Stable as possible. The second Stable opened in Weymouth in 2012 and it was only a matter of time before the Stable love spread further afield. The natural choice was Bristol, in the heart of cider country!
