19.11.10 - Pies inside

Ladies (41% of our twitter followers, by the way), look away now.

Umbrella is a new online magazine for men.

According to its ‘about’ section, Umbrella is inspired by fashion, architecture, travel, ideas and design – and by uncovering the hidden and examining the details.

And since pies aren’t so much filled pastry treats as crowns that sit on the head of British cuisine, we were delighted when Umbrella took the top off some of our favourite quick, flavour-full and great value wonders – and took a look inside.

We recommend you do the same with Umbrella. Take a look inside, we mean, not any of the rest of that really long sentence.

When you do, you’ll find not one but three pie recipes from our Cass, as well as a Q&A with the man himself.
