This is a strange request but I'm hoping some of you might be able to help me bat around some ideas.
Some friends of mine hold a Pie Contest once a year and it's evolved into a competition to see who can come up with the most weird and wacky combinations to really make an impact.
In the past I've done a cherpumple (this isn't mine, but it's the same principle http://preview.tinyurl.com/cak7kde) and a Bangers & Mash Pie with a Yorkshire Pudding base but I'm out of ideas for this year.
I am considering the possibility of a riff on a crumb crust but for a savoury pie - maybe with a combination of savoury crackers and pork scratchings pressed into a spring form tin but then can't decide an appropriate savoury filling - layers of paté, rillettes and cream cheese?
My other idea is an ice cream pie with a meringue crust - blowtorched rather than baked but I'm not sure.
Any pearls of wisdom?
