23 January – Pie Day
It’s Pie Day! Pies have a long and illustrious history, but the sweet filled treats we enjoy today are a relatively recent innovation. The Greeks and Romans made some of the first pies in history. People filled pastry shells with different kinds of meat or seafood, flavoured them with a variety of spices, and served them as part of the sweet course of the meal.
It wasn’t until the late 1800s that the first sweet pies emerged. Whether you prefer savoury or sweet, bake your favourite pie recipe tonight in honour of Pie Day!
