Mr. Pigeon meets his idols



After an hour and a half standing in the cold outside Waterstones in Nottingham, Mr. Pigeon finally got to meet his food heroes - The Hairy Bikers!



...though it looks like it's a good job I was there to save him from becoming pigeon pie.


Their new book is all about family recipes handed down through the generations, so I thought I'd hand my own recipe (i.e. the only recipe in my folder which I haven't taken from some book or other) down to you to try. It's very easy and very tasty. Just click on the picture to make it bigger...or if that fails, e-mail me for a printable copy:


Finally, I apologise for not updating more frequently. The Pigeon Loft is being (very slowly) re-branded and I'm working (with the help of a very patient and clever friend) on a proper website, which will be Mr.P's online home. Hopefully it will include this blog, more pigeon adventures, colouring sheets, recipes, tutorials etc. If you'd like to request anything to be included in this new site, I'd be very glad to hear your ideas!

Cheesy trees? Are they different from cheesy peas or even cheesy knees? I think they'll go down very well with the little pebbles so thankyou very much indeed for the recipe Charlie and Mr P. Lovely to see you around these here parts.

Lucky old Hairy Bikers to meet someone as famous as Mr.P. I should imagine they will be dining out on this story for years !! (hahahahahahahahaha - I crease myself up with my own jokes.)

I like the sound of your cheesy trees, and that Mr P is winning himself such celebrity fans. Is he willing to meet the Queen?

What an absolutely brilliant photo Charlie! I'm very relieved you were there to look after Mr P though!

I'm excited at the sound of your new webpage - especially the idea of colouring pages (as long as some include Mr P of course!)

Thank you for the recipe - looks yummy! My friend Louise worked as the home economist on 3 or 4 of the Hairy Biker's TV shows that go with that book - she enjoyed it a lot!
Good luck with the new website.

Frankly - Mr. P looks in danger. I wouldn't trust those two hairy men! ;-)
