Food artist creates series of British scenes made entirely from pies to help celebrate British Pie Week


FOOD artist Prudence Staite prefers a flan base to a ­fanbase – though her latest pictures of British scenes made entirely from pies looks set to win her a whole new batch of admirers.

The series, to ­celebrate British Pie Week next week, took her 700 painstaking hours, as she made and carefully placed 1,800 cooked and uncooked pies per image.

She used a ­whopping 70kg of shortcrust, puff and filo pastry.

Prudence, from Pamington, Gloucs – who has previously made celebrity portraits out of pizzas – was commissioned for the work by pastry firm Jus-Rol.

She said: “I wanted people to be able to touch art, smell art, enjoy art, bite art and really get involved.”

Here, we cast our eyes over the pies.
