Temple Pies are tasty and nourishing individual pies, hand-made in our Herne Hill kitchen. They are all meat-free (many are vegan and dairy-free), enclosed in a thin, crispy low fat pastry crust and packed full of fresh ingredients. Our pies (and calzones) are for both vegetarians and those who'd like to eat less meat, but who like a good, tasty and filling pie. Temple Pies are ideal for a meal with an accompaniment as well as a filling snack, if you've got a big appetite! They are available chilled for reheating or can be frozen for later. (Heat in the oven at 180C for 20 minutes until piping hot, 18 minutes for a fan oven. If freezing, defrost overnight before reheating.) Temple Pies also bake very tasty vegetarian calzones, a sort of pizza-type pasty which, because they are encased in dough rather than pastry, can be reheated in a microwave and are much lower in fat content (Temple Pies' calzone dough contains only a small amount of olive oil). They are best when reheated in the oven for a crispy crust, and can be eaten by hand if outside as well as part of a meal. Our calzones are hand-made with organic flour and vegetables (where possible) and are sold frozen. Thaw the calzone for a few hours or overnight in the fridge, or they can be reheated in a microwave but they won't have a crispy crust (they'll be just as tasty though). See the product descriptions for reheating details. Temple Pies also bake speciality breads. We use locally-sourced and organic ingredients, where possible, and all of our packaging is fully biodegradable and compostable. Steve Tucker, with over 25 years baking experience, mainly bread, is the pie-maker, and a long-time vegetarian. These are the pies and calzones he could never find in the shops - and now he doesn't need to look, and neither do you.
