A pie is a baked food, made of pastry and a filling. The filling can be meat as well as fruit. In Britain, pies with the fillings chicken, mushroom, minced beef or pork are very popular. They are also eaten with chips.

Mince pies are very popular and filled with mincemeat which is made from dried fruit. This was not always the case. In earlier times, a mince pie consisted of meat such as rabbit, pigeon, partridge, capon and pheasant as well as eggs, mushrooms and spices.
