Tag Archives: Growler


Julian got a home-made pork pie for his birthday….what more would he want (a cake??!).  I think he was infinitely more pleased with the pie.

I was just thinking of a title for my P.P.P. (Pork Pie Post), when I remembered that Dad used to refer to them as growlers.  Thought I would investigate the provenance of ‘growler’……nothing exciting to report really apart from it is a term that originated in Yorkshire.

The two most common theories are:

1) You eat one when your stomach is growling.
2) They make your stomach growl after you’ve eaten one.

Probably the best answer I could ask for!


Humm...thought the big black nose might show some interest....
