This Scotch pie is made up of fine cuts of Highland Scotch Steak cooked slowly in flavoursome gravy until tender and then Strathdon Blue Cheese is crumbled in and topped by a puff pastry lid. This vegetarian blue cheese is manufactured using pasteurised cow’s milk. The cheese has a firm texture with a distinctive creamy flavour. It is produced in Tain by Highland Fine Cheeses.
