Which savory pie recipes are we making at home?
Fish pie is crowned as the pie recipe Brits want to recreate at home! It might be the mix of fish or the mashed potato on top, but in fact, there are 320,700 searches for ‘fish pie recipe’ being made each month.

Cottage pie comes in second place. In fact, there are 305,900 searches for ‘cottage pie’ in the past 30 days. Often considered the same as shepherd’s pie, they are slightly different: Shepherd’s pie is made with lamb and cottage pie should only be named as such if it contains beef.

At it seems that Veganuary is making Brits try meat-free recipes, as vegetable pot pie makes the top 10 with 1,300 searches for ‘vegetable pot pie recipe’ each month. And although 3 of the top 10 pie recipes are vegetarian options, apparently they aren’t very popular in the UK, as 90% of the total volume of searches for savoury pie recipes include meat or fish.

Which sweet pie recipes are we making at home?
Coming as no surprise, first place is apple pie. As a traditional dessert, many people have their own or a family’s recipe to try but despite that, there are still 295,400 monthly searches for ‘apple pie recipe’.

Also making our mouths water are cherry pies, which lands in second place. The term ‘cherry pie recipe’ is Googled 58,300 times each month, making this real treat definitely one of Brits’ favourites!

Last but definitely not least is the indulgent chocolate pie with 3,800 searches for ‘chocolate pie recipe’ being made each month. And it seems that sweet-toothed Brits have their preferences very clear as 84% of the searches for pie recipes include fruit fillings.
