Pie for dinner? Savory pies are making a comeback in a new, trendy comfort food kind of way and they are no longer just a hiding place for that leftover mystery meat. According to the Herald Tribune, even the British are seeing a re-birth in the perception of savory pies, and though they were once regarded as a "low-rent kind of food," they are now showing up on menus in trendy restaurants, incorporating exotic flavors and re-educating the British palette. Even Virgin Atlantic Airlines is offering a savory pie in its upper class service and the dinner pie is once again crossing the Atlantic, coming to America.

Savory pies are nothing new and can be traced back to the Middle Ages. The Egyptians and the Romans encased meats in hard pastries made from flour, suet and eggs as a way to prevent spoilage, as well as a moist cooking method. Most cultures have some form of savory pie that can be associated with it, while the fillings or seasoning may take on a more regional note.
