About the Author
Pieminister is a sustainable pie making business from Bristol, UK. Their award-winning range includes plenty of plant-based and gluten-free recipes, and their business puts a major emphasis on animal welfare and sustainably sourced ingredients. Pieminister was founded in 2003 by brothers-in-law Tristan Hogg and Jon Simon, when they set up their shop in Bristol. Tristan made the pies and Jon ran the shop. Their exceptional pies meant the brand grew swiftly, and now employs 300 people and runs 16 restaurants across the UK. However, the company retains its family values and still makes all its pies in its Bristol shop. Instagram: @pieminister | www.pieminister.co.uk
