Pork pies are a bit like Marmite. You either love them or hate them.
I was pretty much a hater until I tasted Liberty Foods pork pies at one of our food fairs. I was immediately struck by how light the pastry was and how meaty the filling tasted.
If pies could be made to taste this good.....not at all like the mass produced, blended, over processed ones sealed in a sarcophagus of endless pastry........ then I wanted to know more.
The artisan producer of these genius creations is Simon Barnes. Simon will be revealing his pork pie making secrets in this half day artisan pork pie making course exclusively at Hartingtons.
