Ahoy pie lovers! At Pierate, we've been eating and rating pies according to the 'Seven Cs' since 2009. So far we’ve clocked up well over 440 pie reviews, and the wind is certainly still in our sails on our mission to find the greatest pie on Earth. We've judged at the British Pie Awards, the Scotch Pie Awards, been on radio stations nationally, interacted with hundreds of other pie lovers, gained fame in the pie world, branched out into baking our own pies (the Ship's Cook is our dedicated pie baker), rated gluten free/specialist pies (we have a dedicated gluten free pie eater on board), reviewed pie recipe books, organised pie-related events and contests, and used social media to discuss pies (with an ever-growing Twitter following). People have often commented how our blog is a fascinating trove of all things pastry, and how we have taken pie-eating to a cult level. If it’s pies, it’s Pierate.
