Is there anything more British than a good old pie? We think not!

And to celebrate pies and all their goodness, the BBC has dedicated a whole programme to them.

A Life of Pie is part of the BBC One series ‘Our Lives’ which takes a look at the diversity of British society.

What is A Life of Pie?

A Life of Pie takes a look at the British Pie Awards and the 2019 competition will be held in none other than the birthplace of the pork pie – Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire!

Underneath all that homely comforting deliciousness is some serious tradition and passion and the BBC wants us all to know about it.

The pie and pastry business is no joke with £1.2 billion a year spent on them according to the BBC and 75 per cent of us eating a pie once a month!
