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.
