Pi Day – 14 Mar 2013

As part of some workplace meriment, we decided to celebrate Pi Day, which commemorates the mathematical constant,  π . Pi Day is celebrated on 14/3 or in the American date format 3/14 given  π = 3.141592653…. There’s also Pi Approximation Day on 22 July (22/7 -> 22 divided 7 produces a value that approximates the value of π. OK, what does this have to do with food? Well, add an e on Pi and you have Pie.

Last time I did have a go and made a peanut butter pie but his time around I was just too busy. What a shame, I would have loved to have tried my hand at making something. Maybe next year. Instead, I got nominated to be one of the judges to determine the best pie. We had 9 pies brought in so well done to all who took the time and effort. I had the pleasure / displeasure of having to eat all this pie!

Clockwise from top left corner:

  • Lemon Italian Meringue Pie
  • Chocolate Pie
  • Miss Maud Apple Pie (someone had to buy one!)
  • Bacon & Egg Pie
  • Dark Chocolate & Poached Pear Pie
  • Beef, Bacon & Cheese Pie
  • Dark Chocolate Pie
  • Chocolate Pie

Judging was to be based on presentation, relevance to Pi, and of course taste. Well the Beef, Bacon & Cheese Pie stole the show with a glass of dry ice added with great effect – yes, the smoke in the picture is the dry ice. After all that pie, we judged the Beef, Bacon & Cheese Pie the winner, just a smidgeon ahead of the Dark Chocolate & Poached Pear Pie and followed by the Lemon Italian Meringue Pie.

It was good there were a few savoury pies in there but I still ate too much pie.

We also had an away day at work and headed down to the Rosemount Hotel. Standard pub / bar menu so I opted for the fisherman’s basket.

I really loved the chips which were delicious. I hate when chips just aren’t up to scratch but these were excellent. I also enjoyed the tartare sauce and the different elements of fish were really tasty. Got a few crumbed squid rings which I enjoyed, a few prawns, a single scallop, a few crab bits, and a lovely piece of fish. Simple meal which was cooked well, excellent chips, ample batter, perfectly deep fried, delicious meal.

After that, we made a dash across the road in driving rain to the Rosemount Ten Pin Bowling. An afternoon of fun and glad to get out of the office. I really enjoy ten pin bowling but it is a really frustrating game at times! Fortunately I did really well with scores of 117 and 139 in my two games, lots of competitiveness, a bit of trash talk, some rather interesting celebrations on those strikes and spares and a great time all round.
