How the butter pie became one of the most iconic foods in Lancashire [In-Depth]
Image
The brief but fascinating history of the Butter Pie. (Image: Tony Worrall)

How the Reformation, Catholic migrants and Lent gave birth to the Butter Pie.

We've covered Lancashire witches, the Cotton Panic, famous faces and Colne adventurers.

But let's be honest, those history articles cower in the face of this truly monumental piece.

This is the history of one of Preston's most important delicacies, the food stuff that has kept the north west nourished for centuries.

This is the history of the Butter Pie, with all the social implications, drama and taste thrown in.


Before the pie: Reformation, Irish immigrants and Catholics

It's strange to think that something like religion would have an influence on a pie but in this case the Butter Pie would have never existed if it weren't for Catholicism.

This is Msgr. Dario Edoardo Vigano.... This is not Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, former nuncio to the US, who blew the whistle on the Lavender Mafia of gay clergy in the US hierarchy.

Why would a journalist who falsified Benedict's writing be promoted to Vice Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences? Wouldn't that be an office proper for a Scientist, not a Journalist (and not a very good Journalist at that?)

I dunno. Maybe Francis needs a hack journalist to report on advances in research regarding climate change.

I've been watching an interesting documentary on Marian Days that takes place each year in Carthage, MO. I knew that it happened each year, but I didn't realize just how big it was. Below is a link to the documentary if you are interested.

This is amazing!

I have a cousin who lives in Carthage. I must ask her more about this when we gather at Christmas.



This reminds me of a joke about the hipster Catholic who goes to the 4:30 Vietnamese-language Mass on Saturday -- because the Spanish Mass is too mainstream.

Okay... We watched the whole thing about the Vietnamese celebration of Marian Days in Carthage, MO.... and now my family wants to make a pilgrimage to be part of this.

Especially in our current secular climate. I want to celebrate with a large number of immigrants who don't know they are victims... among an entire town full of Bible Christians who don't know that they are bigots.

Carthage is only 1 hour away from Springfield. Hmmm....
