PIE-THAGORAS Pie

Handcrafted gourmet pie with slow cooked beef, mushroom, root vegetables in a rich craft beer sauce, encased in a crisp, short rust pastry shell, served over mustard mash, beef jus and real mushy peas.

While in the UK many years ago I discovered a takeaway pie shop in a little Oxford street and was blown away by the quality and simplicity of the product. What better concept for an English pub with Kiwi roots than the humble pie, elevated to a gourmet level? A pie truly worth its crust, the PIE-THAGOROS is made with high-quality local ingredients and slow cooking techniques. We sear and slow cook brisket of beef with root vegetables, herbs, mushrooms, beef stock and craft beer until meltingly tender and brimming with flavour. We enrich the sauce with tomato and garlic and encase the filling in a crisp short crust base. And to 'top' it off, a removable puff pastry lid gives you the option of adding more toppings to taste, such as jalapeno peppers, grated mature cheddar or crispy fried shallots. Served over creamy wholegrain mustard mash with a rich beef jus and crowned with proper house-made English mushy peas , you can't go wrong. As for the name, why not have some fun with it?
