Those of you who have been following the story so far closely will know that:
1. Sarah is pretty good at getting pop-up pie assistants to help her with events. Sometimes they only make a brief appearance, sometimes they are on hand all day. Its been a popular move and the roll call is impressive…
2. Sarah and the pie team at Brays Cottage won a bursary to be part of the Producers Village at the upcoming BBC Good Food Show Winter at the NEC, next week.
3. I’m pop up pie assisting….
Yikes its NEXT WEEK!!
It’s all in hand though….Sarah’s been ordering lots of exciting livery for the stand and frantically crimping pies with the rest of the pie elves whilst I’ve been filling in lots of bureaucratic forms to get entry passes, to be allowed in with the delivery van, to be allowed to provide samples, to be allowed to sell pies, to get H&S clearance…… All those details that you have to get right before you can be allowed in the doors and on to the stand to meet the punters.
And because the ‘perfect pork pie’ needs to have a perfectly beautifully dressed crew, as well as the regular (and exceptionally smart) green BrayCo aprons, the team will be sporting branded T shirts specially produced in a short run quantity to our specific requirements by an artisan production team in East London (aka me).
Neat huh (notice the logo on the arm)?
Oh and just to give things a little extra pizzazz on the day’s I’m pie assisting (Thursday and Friday) I’ll be sporting a hat, a pork pie hat of course:
So come along say hi and erm buy a pie (or several)…
