The Bridie of Frankenstein

You may recall that I told you some months ago about an evil and misguided experiment that aimed to construct a foodstuff from meat and <gasp> flaky pastry, rather than the true and godly shortcrust.

Mum told me yesterday that right has triumphed and the SWRI has recognised that the one true Forfar bridie requires that the casing be of shortcrust pastry, and all show schedules have been altered accordingly.

I am glad to hear it. This is a triumph indeed for bridiedom, and the threat of Crust-Wars breaking out has subsided.

Flaky bridies... No. Just no.

You do know that Wiki entry mentions puff pastry...?
Is that as evil as flaky?

I did notice that, but chose not to pursue it, particularly as I was posting quickly before catching the bus to work. The key point is that shortcrust is right. Different kinds of wrong are still just wrong :-)

Having won the battle of Flaky, will the war now move on to the Puff front?
