British Pie Week


In honour of British Pie Week, I have been doing some market research.

Did you know that in Jamaica you can get a Steak and Kidney Pie for the equivalent of £1.75, a Chicken and Mushroom Pie for £1.60 and Pork Pie for £2.15. In St Lucia a Steak and Kidney pie will cost you £2.05, a Cottage Pie is £1.70 and a Stargazy pie can be yours for £2.95.

In Trinidad, Barbados, Tobago and Dominica that Steak and Kidney Pie comes in at £2.50 but you can get two for £3.50, while the Chicken and Mushroom Pie is £2.25 or two for £3.25. They also offer Meat and Potato Pie for £2.00 or two for £3.00. Their Fisherman Pies and Shepherds Pies are often sold for £2.75 or any combination of two for £4.75.

Further afield in the Lesser Antilles of Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao you can obtain the more specialised pies of Homity Pies and Woolton Pies for the princely sum of £3.45 and £3.95 respectively.

Those my friends are the Pie Rates of the Caribbean.
