Without any exaggeration Friday’s inaugural Friday Pie-Soc might be the high-point of my Lent term. The P staircase, spearheaded by pie-chef extraordinaire Isaac, invited the rest of college into their gyp room, out of which were coming delicious and piping hot cherry-almond and banana-custard pies. Banana being my favourite dessert ingredient, my choice of pie was obvious, and served with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream, I think I attained nirvana. My only regret is that in sheer exhilaration (or worry the ice cream would melt), I probably ate my pie too quickly could have savoured the flavour more – but luckily there is always next Friday pie-day.
I went to soak up the Gaelic culture and learn a few moves to try out at Cindies, but the brilliant surprise was the spread that went with it – brownies, apple pies, chocolate cake, guacamole and tortilla chips. Not to mention the beverages (of which the coca cola was surprisingly effective relief for my tonsillitis).
