Recipe Shed Review: Testicle Pie (aka Charlie Bighams Valentines Cock & Bull Pie), Lay The Table


The foodie friends I used to work with at the cookery magazine Eat In have never forgotten me. Every now and then, they toss me a few crumbs of comfort in the form of a smelly cheese or a zest wine.


But this week, theyve cleared decided Bollocks To That and gifted me a pie made from¦testicles.


Now Im always up for a foodie challenge. My worst ever encounter with a (semi) edible substance was a sheeps eye, ripped from the socket of a roasted ovine by a Syrian soldier in the Kuwait desert during the 1991 Gulf War.


But Ive never eaten bollocks. Talked a lot, but never tasted.


So Charlie Bighams specially created-for-Valentines Cock & Bull Pie was going to test(es) my resolve.


It is described thus: The worlds first lust-enhancing aphrodisiac pie, packed full of sexually stimulating ingredients.


These are :Mama Juana liquor (made from red wine, dark rum and spices), ginseng, madeira and, in addition to the usual suspects (beef, carrots, stock and Worcestershire sauce)..bulls testicles.


All the ingredients have been especially selected for their, er, horn-enhancing properties.


So whats the verdict?


Well, my wife wouldnt go anywhere near anything containing testicles (no change there) so it was left to me to be the guinea pig.


The pastry topping was everything youd expect: high and flaky. And the filling had plenty of steak, was very saucy but was lacking in BALLS!


In fact, it was lacking in how can I put this? BALLS!


I was expecting something akin to a steak and kidney experience, but it didnt really deliver.


As for its aphrodisiac properties. Im afraid when you get to my age, it takes a lot more than a chew on a testicle to get the Old Man in the mood, if you get my meaning.


I think Ill stick to beef and oysters.


¢ Charlie Bighams Cock & Bull PIes are available online at Ocado. And, no, this is not a sponsored post. Moooooooo!


If youre wondering THIS is what a bulls testicle looks like, though thankfully there was nothing like this in the pie.
