Our best sellers are my award-winning Russian pies called 'piroshki' (said as 'per-rosh-kee'). They are deep-filled, generous single portion pies.
My traditional hand-crafted Russian Piroshki is a lightly sweet soft buttery yeast dough - wrapped around a seasoned filling of say, baked chicken thigh morsels and two types of chorizo - one mild, the other stronger. Our filling is massive in proportion to the outer baked dough - unlike traditional British pies that are the opposite !
I have won 19 British Pie Awards in the last 3 years - which includes 2 Class Champion accolades - and now 5 Great Taste Awards - one them being 3 stars out of 3 - for our Sea Bass and Cod <here>. Plus 2 x Two Stars and 2 x One Star.

The food available at RussianPies.com is freshly made in our "own kitchen" (or rather our 3,500 sq ft unit !) - and, due to customer demand, is now available to order online - direct to your door in our special Cool Boxes. Our award-winning Russian Pies are sent out to you ready-cooked, so that you can enjoy them as they are or simply re-heat them as and when you want them. Our Pies are very suitable for freezing - and defrost surprisingly dry - not soggy like pastry pies.
Generally each pie weighs around 260gm each (but every pie varies depending on the filling).
All Pie orders come in different quantities - check the Pie 'Collections' <here>. We can cater for larger orders but these should be ordered in advance - after I discuss your requirements with you. Contact us <here>
Why chose Home Delivery?
No need to leave home to enjoy our food !
Freshly baked and delivered first class to your door in secure packaging, you’ll be able to enjoy your award-winning food just as much as if you’d visited us in person.
Your pies will arrive the day after baking. They are at their best for 7 days, so you’ll have at least 5 or 6 days in which to enjoy it as it would be if you collected from us in person.
They also freeze well and defrost dry.
What’s more, our 'Collections' make great gifts and we can even include a personalised message which we’ll include on one of our Russian postcards.
