Erudite Epicure

 

Stargazy pie

 

This dreamy dish is not that dreamy to look at - it has fish heads poking through the crust, so they appear to be gazing up at the sky. According to the myth, the dish originates from the village of Mousehole. A local fisherman called Tom Bawcock once saved his fellow villagers from starvation by braving the stormy seas to catch a record haul. The fish were baked poking out of the pies, to prove to everyone that there was fish inside.
