karohemd: Gentoo penguins in Antarctica, by me (Hungry)
Continuing my local binge on Saturday, the destination was the hall by the Catholic church where the Cambridge Food and Wine Society had invited Carri of Pavitt's Pies to offer a tasting of her range of excellent home-made pies.
To go with the pies we had a selection of beers from the Moonshine Brewery in Cambridge which were equally excellent.
The pies on offer were:

Mushroom, onion and thyme (vegetarian)
Chicken and mushroom
Beef and ale
Cheese and onion (vegetarian)
Pork and chorizo
Pavitt’s Piemosa (vegetarian, similar filling to samosa but with a pie crust)

There was also a selection of beers from Cambridge's Moonshine Brewery: Parkers Piece, Reel Ale (orginally brewed for the Arts Cinema), Night Watch Porter, Silent Night, Black Dog and Boathouse Bitter, ranging from a pale ale to a strong Porter.

karohemd: by LJ user gothindulgence (Babybier)
was a lot of fun last night. Met up with friends ([livejournal.com profile] robinbloke, [livejournal.com profile] razornet, [livejournal.com profile] vyvyan and Oliver, [livejournal.com profile] mansunite, [livejournal.com profile] gothchip and others), tried two beers (Buntingford's Baltic Twitch, lovely dark stuff and Potbelly's Pigs Do Fly, a light but tasty golden ale) and an awesome cidre called Pickled Pig Rum Cask.
I also had a huge giraffe(!) sausage (another tick on my unusual food list) and a rather fine jalapeno chili and veg pasty. I ran into Robb (does sound around various pubs and small venues in Cambs) who I hadn't seen for years so had a good chat catching up with him.

Excellent drink and food, chats with friends old and new and a really good time. A wonderful way to spend an evening.

Was a bit sorry I didn't get to try more stuff but that cider almost knocked me over so I might go down again on Thursday.
