Of course we were going to review some pies, the title wasn’t just for lulz!
First up is the “Rabbit, Potato and Bacon Pie” from Raspberry Fool and the first thing I noticed was it didn’t seem to contain either potato or bacon. Not sure if it was described wrong by the server, a new recipe or what but to be fair I’ll just refer to it as a “Rabbit Pie”.
The pie showed signs of quality right from the beginning revealing a generous amount of meat as I cut into it and the pastry firm.
The pastry really was a highlight and one of the best I’ve experienced, holding together beautifully with a firmness usually found in a shortcrust but still being light and flaky and buttery. It made me want to go back and try all the pies and they had about a dozen to choose from!
The filling was meaty and flavoursome with a great bunny taste, well seasoned and complimented by carrot and celery. Loved the ratio of meat here, so often in such pies you find a lot of filler ingredients but this one had the protein right at the forefront and it shone.
Negatives? I would have liked a bigger pie, it was more snack size than a meal but I still thought it good value at $6.90. Also the missing potato and bacon but hey, it really didn’t need them.
I’m a big fan of Raspberry Fool, always interesting meals and great coffee, I’m giving this pie 8.5/10
