Meraai se Chicken Pie on RSG
May 16, 2012 in Uncategorized
Meraai se Chicken Pie will feature on my radio slot tomorrow morning on RSG. I do not know who Meraai was or where this pie comes from, but it certainly is the best Chicken Pie I have EVER had. I must have known that a pie of this caliber can only come from Bloemfontein……..hearty, comforting, unforgettable …..just like the people from Bloemfontein.
Yes, I warned you about getting tired of my Bloemfontein ravings, but what can I say, I’m hooked. Last Tuesday night, while I was there, my friend Retha Cronje invited me to supper. On arrival at her house she told me that she made a pie …. Meraai se Chicken Pie! The aromas coming from her kitchen should have been warning enough that his was going to be legendary. The pie she took from the oven, was a thing of beauty……huge too! Need I say more…the pie was so delicious, the company as warm and heartfelt as the pie and as we sunk into our chairs to watch Masterchef South Africa….. great was our amusement when the challenge for the night was……you guessed it….Meraai se Pie! If only the contestants had this recipe! I am sure you could easily feed 8-10 people on it and have a little leftover for a lunchbox the next day.
