Square Pie, the original gourmet pie company has launched its ‘Pie World Cup’ this September 18th to celebrate the Rugby World Cup coming to the UK. The inventive team at Square Pie have created a champion squad of 20 incredible recipes representing each country playing in the tournament.

Martin Dewey, behind it all explains more about his pledge to match tries with pies; “Pie and rugby, what’s not to love?! The recipes are incredible and encompass ingredients from every continent.  It’s going to be hectic in the kitchen but the pies taste amazing and should get everyone living and eating Rugby World Cup fever!  I am a big fan of the Canadian Moose Pie but we will see how the matches play out.”

So as the teams line up for every match, the fixture will be mirrored in Square Pie Restaurants and the results board broadcast through the website:  to kick off in week 1 will see England, the Dallaglio Foundation Steak & ale pie up against Fiji, the braised Fijian Goat Curry in a vegetable sauce.  Will the traditional choice smash the more daring choice or will we see the Fijian pie drop kick a few last minute pie sales to win the opening game.

The 20 pies have been a year in development and took Square Pie to every corner of the world, no other British pie company has ever made such an extreme range of pies! Highlights include...

The Australian Pie:  You will be getting your budgie smugglers out for these when you taste this mouth-watering Kangaroo, Field Mushroom and Aussie Shiraz combination. Backed by the pundits it seems this pie might have a chance at the championship.

The Springbok Pie: This pie packs a big flavour, South African springbok sausage wrapped up in the spiciest sauce in the tournament and wrapped in golden pastry.

Dallaglio Foundation Steak and ale pie : The English classic representing Rugby World Cup winner Lawrence Dallaglio’s charity, the Dallaglio Foundation.  A great pie representing a great cause with 10p on every pie sale going to the foundation in Square Pie restaurants as well as selected London Tesco stores and Ocado.
