Last Sunday, this year’s “Australia Day” was being celebrated a couple of days later at the Three Jolly Pigeons bar in my own Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and I was very much looking forward to the festivities because I wanted to get completely “pie-eyed”. Oh I’m not referring to drinking a single drop of alcohol mind you, because when I said “pie-eyed” it was to enjoy the culinary treats that His Royal Pieness had cooked up and was serving until the supplies ran out. I used my mobile for the images from the time spent, so please enjoy.
This year His Royal Pieness had cool shirts with an awesome dinosaur on them oh and before you ask, HRP is actually named Callum Sigg and you will meet him later on in the presentation.
These were the pies that were made for today. I ordered a Steak and Vegetables and the Chicken with Creamed Spinach.
The pies are made offsite and reheated in this handy little warming oven.
Here’s another view of the shirt that we saw earlier.
Here are the two pies that I mentioned ordering before. The one on the left is the steak and vegetables one and I had mashed potatoes and gravy added to that one. Yummy. I made short work of both of them though.
Here’s Callum, enjoying the response to the Australia Day offerings. I should mention that the bar had a hefty amount of Australian beers on hand for the festivities but I neglected to take any photos of them since I was not drinking today and was more focused on chowing down.
Callum and his lovely assistants for the day. They were serving up the pies in a fast and furious pace. Thanks ladies.
That was a yummy adventure for sure and I hope to enjoy these culinary treats again sometime soon despite the fact that my waistline doesn’t mirror the viewpoint. This year I ate and ran and didn’t bring any back with me which I should have done. Oh well. The next time for sure. Thanks to His Royal Pieness for setting up an awesome afternoon.
