How It All Began
Simple Simon’s Perfect Pies was established in the south of Scotland in 2005. This was where we made fabulous pies filled with the most exquisite recipes created from seasonal locally sourced ingredients. We promoted our “complete meal in a pie” which had mashed potato and delicious fillings heaped into puff pastry cases. The pies were then baked in the oven until crispy golden brown and sold to be reheated. Our pies were a great success as people were so busy and not everyone had time to make a meal, let alone time to sit down and enjoy food with others. And then the pandemic struck. People have been forced to change the way they live their lives and have re-evaluate their priorities. So we decided to respond to a changing market where people shop on line and eat at home more often.
And the result?
Our online shop has all the pie options available. They are already baked so all you need to do is reheat at 180 degrees for 20 mins and eat. The pies can also be eaten cold and should be kept in the fridge eaten within two days. You can freeze our ready cooked pies for up to 6 months. Once defrosted they should be eaten the same day. Our pies arrive in a double walled cardboard box wrapped in recyclable “thermo guard”, covered in ice packs. No polystyrene packaging for us!
