I’d heard about the Killie Pie long before starting the book but I didn’t exactly know what was in it. If you’d ask me now I’d tell you that it’s purely a bloody good steak pie.
North of the Border they are partial to a Scotch pie generally filled with cheaper mincemeat or mutton, therefore a rich, chunky steak pie submerged in gravy is a joy to behold.
Formed in the traditional tin shape, it’s a perfectly crafted vessel containing some fine cuts of meat which helps it race into a two goal lead before half time, completing its hat trick in the second half as the gravy kicks you into submission.
If this is only the 4th best football pie in Europe, I’d love to know what the first three are….
Just one of, I’m sure, many reasons to visit Kilmarnock.
