Scottish chef Mark Greenaway will open a takeaway pie and mash shop in London on April 12.
The Scottish chef has taken on the former Wrap It Up site close to the Embankment. It will be, we predict, an immeasurable improvement.
Greenaway’s Pie & Mash will use traditional Scotch pie pastry shells for the base, and fillings will include chicken, mushroom and tarragon, beef short rib and pearl onion, and butternut squash, goat’s cheese and spinach. Desserts include apple pie with cream and custard.
The pies will be available in the shop, via delivery, or frozen to take away and cook at home.
Greenaway is also planning a full restaurant later in the year. Plans for a 30-cover fixture are underway, with dishes on the menu inspired by his work on the Great British Menu.
Greenaway said: “Opening a pie and mash shop is not something I would have thought about doing a year ago.
“However, living and learning the culture here in London during lockdown has pivoted my thinking and almost excited me to look for other opportunities ahead of my signature restaurant opening In the summer.”
