Stonehaugh Pie Fest

Stonehaugh Pie Fest

Last Friday saw the 2nd Annual Pie Fest competition in Stonehaugh. 18 people entered with various pies including meat, fish and vegetarian. Incredibly 1st and 2nd prizes were won with vegetarian recipes which is a great triumph for us veggies showing that veggie food can be really tasty for everyone. I scooped 1st prize with my mini shepherd’s pies and sweet potato topping. Paul Craney came 2nd with his vegetarian Jalousie. Recipes for both are below. See more pictures on our Facebook page.
