Fortunately a kindly taxi driver eventually agreed to take us into the wild frontier and after a spooky journey through hoodies and fires we made it to our hotel, it's entrance windows freshly smashed to fuck.
|Chesterfield - home to the tastiest pie in football|
I've been to about 80 football grounds around the country and eaten pies at most of them. If there were such thing as the Ben Viveur Football Pie of the Year Award, it would be in the trophy cabinet at Chesterfield FC.
The worst one ever... Well, there was a minced beef pie at Scunthorpe once which was frozen in the centre and had a hole in pasty base, but that was quite possibly a one-off.
The worst 'actually meant to taste that way' pie is probably another meat and potato, and while the Bury pie was pretty awful and I there was one at Burnley a few years ago that I couldn't even stomach. The catfood-like stench made me physically gag, and on the train home I managed to make myself throw up just by remembering the smell of it!
It just goes to show that even amongst the humble football ground pie, there is vast culinary diversity.
Stuff being good is the most important thing in the world
