Holland’s Potato and Meat Family Pie: A Feast of the M60 Pie Review

Feast of the M60 weighs up Holland’s latest addition

With the pandemic still doing its worst, you could be forgiven for thinking “hey, Feast of the M60 could be doing Banana Bread reviews.” Or that East of the M60 will be doing a three-page review on hand sanitisers with an equivalent of the Zzap! 64 Gold Medal going to Cussons’ Love Hearts hand sanitiser.

In Praise of the Aggborough Pie Hut

Supporters’ survey fails to do justice to Murdoch’s delectable dishes

Regular readers may be familiar with some of my ramblings on The Mighty Stalybridge Celtic®, whom I have followed home and away through thick, thin, thinner and thinnest of times.

Another Take Out: Alternative Fast Food Outlets to the Totalitarian Multinational Offerings

Other eateries are available – and lovingly recommended by Feast of the M60

At one time, we used to throw away the pastry and eat the meat inside. Thanks to the joys of the Industrial Revolution, we eschewed this often wasteful practice and devoured it from crust to gristle.

Feast of the M60: Pie Review

New from East of the M60 – Food Reviews

  • Pie: Chicken Curry pie
  • Maker: Peters, Bedwas, Caerphilly
  • Location: Blakeway’s Chippy, Brighouse, West Yorkshire
