It was more like one of those meat pies Ed Szymanski makes.

Well, not exactly.  It was a lot denser.  And had no vegetables or gravy.  (Like a pork pie.)

Mm, not a gala. Go ahead and enjoy. It looks like you might be in the clear.

Just never heat (re-heat??) an English pork pie.

I know you don’t do photos. Do you have a link for the pork pie police to evaluate?

Two things I want to make clear about this pork pie.

1.  The filling was more spongy than solid-set.  It wasn't like tinned corned beef or anything like that.

2.  There was no jelly.

I mean I have to be honest with you @Wilfrid.

Whenever I've had a pork pie in a pub in England (which is frequently), I've always thought, "this would be better hot."

If you prefer the pastry squishy rather than crisp and want the jelly to melt and soak it, hot is the way to go.

If the pastry wasn’t crisp and there was no jelly, it wasn’t a proper pork pie.
