Depending on which groundhog you’re following these days, we may be in for an early spring… or, according to Punxsutawney Phil (the most famous Groundhog from Pennsylvania), we have another six weeks of winter ahead of us! But don’t fret – because cold, harsh winters also mean more warm and delicious comfort foods to enjoy! Let us share some of our favorite cold weather “pies” with you; made fresh from one of our newest shops, Myers of Keswick!
Myers of Keswick is a local, traditional British grocery store known best for its bangers, meat pies & other imported items. Opened in 1985 by homesick ex-pat, Peter Myers, the family run business sells the best British food around New York City and the country! Fresh goods are made daily, in the kitchen on store premises. Indulge in some of their bestselling items…
Steak & Ale Pie
A British classic and a definite winter-warmer of a meal! The Steak & Ale Pie is a rich meat pie, filled with chunks of steak, slow-cooked in beef broth and mushrooms, topped with a delicious buttery, pastry crust. Pair it with a Dark Ale for an unbeatable combination!
Steak & Kidney
Chopped beef and fresh kidney marry together in a juicy brown gravy with carrots, peas and onions to create this best selling, Steak & Kidney Pie.
Pork Pie is typically served cold, but is still a hearty snack for a cold winter day! Consisting of roughly chopped pork, this pie is traditionally served with a dollop of mustard to really enhance the flavor of the meat! If you’re looking for something with even more protein, opt for the Gala Pie, which is a Pork Pie stuffed with a hard-boiled egg inside!
Chicken & Leek Pie
Whole roasted chicken and leeks are slow-cooked in a creamy white wine sauce to create this knockout combination that will put any ordinary chicken pot pie to shame! This Chicken & Leek Pie will become one of your go-to winter meals.
The Shepherd’s Pie at Myers is a true “Shepherd’s Pie,” made with ground lamb and mixed with beans, mushrooms, onions, carrots and tomatoes. Topped with (our favorite) truffle-infused mashed potatoes, this is one gourmet meat pie you’re not going to want to miss!
Stay warm, be cozy, and eat well this winter! And remember, pies are not just for dessert 😉
