Our pie features in Vegetarian Living.

Vegetarian Living voted our new Mushroom and Ale Pie as one of the three best veggie pies in their New Shoots column. Their taste testers found our pie very hearty and loved our pastry. A few would like more of our gravy, we don’t blame them it’s rather moreish!

Kate gets to meet our team and taste her winning Mushroom and Ale Pie.

It was a very proud moment for Kate Ford and our team here at Linda McCartney Foods as the first of the competition winning mushroom and ale pies came off our production line last week.

We were delighted that Kate was able to meet our production team and take a tour of our meat free site and of course taste her delicious pie. Our Development Chef Richard said “Kate’s pie stood out from the first tasting and the whole team loved the recipe. It was also Paul’s favourite and this was reflected when the public voted for Kate’s recipe”.

Kate said “It’s been a fantastic experience to come here and the pie has come out as I hoped it would. I’ve been a vegetarian since I was eight and wanted to create something a bit different that would appeal to both vegetarians and people who eat meat. The ale is something you wouldn’t usually get in a vegetarian dish”.

Sir Paul McCartney has said how much he’s looking forward to trying the pie “I am thrilled to support this great competition which has continued Linda’s passion to create delicious home cooked and meat free food. Kate’s ‘Mushroom & Ale Pie’ is a worthy winner and includes all the values Linda cherished – I can’t wait to try it myself.”

The pies will be on sale in Sainsbury’s from 8th of August.
