- Start eating it from the pointy end
- Start eating from the wide end (i.e. where the crust is for a pie)
With my hands of a knife and fork? Pointy end by hand, random with knife and fork
Pointy, anything else is madness
But, if you start with the crust end, you get the boring bit out the way first.
Either. Starting with the pointy end is easier if not using a knife and fork, admittedly.
Anybody voting crust first is seriously fucked up or just trying to be edgy.
Or just sensible.
Like to eat a slice of pork pie by eating the meat first, but leaving a small layer of meat above the thick base crust. Then I eat the top, then the side, and then the jackpot crunchy, jelly, meaty bottom
Actually this is a lie. The thin top part is devoured in the first bite
i tend to operate a ‘best til last’ system for eating stuff, and as such i start with the crust and work my way in to the delicious filling
Bloody, fucking love pies
But what if you fill up on crust before getting to the good stuff, huh?
This thread fails to take into account that pies, cakes and different types of cakes all require different strategies.
Reckon the uk is pound for pound the greatest pastry nation on earth. All I’ve got here is empanada, and that’s not even pastry
Should’ve had a smaller slice in that case
If you’re eating a pizza though
I wasn’t intending to include pizza in this if I’m honest. Mainly as I would start with the pointy end when eating a slice of pizza (with my hands anyway).
