56. This is exactly what we are not

This week’s news includes a crowd-funded record player and night light that are, quite frankly, codswallop. Southbank’s new rebrand gets a quick look at, as well as a facelift for the British Gas smart thermostat, Hive. The gents politely raise their hats (revealing marmalade sandwiches) to Michael Bond and say farewell. Milton Glaser’s Ten Things I Have Learned is a collection of observations, philosophies and soundbites that the great designer has been hawking about for at least 18 years. We sprinkle this design gold dust onto our resident cavemen and see what happens. You’ll be cock-a-hoop to know that this week’s pies are fully encased. The fact that the filling resembles cat food is not so promising.

This week's pies

Pie Drink Review Rating

Roast Chicken in Gravy Pie from Sainsbury’s

1906 Black Coupage from Hijos De Rivera

Pastry biscuity. Chicken chunks give it the look of cat food. Doesn’t taste too bad.

Roast Chicken in Gravy Pie from Waitrose

Very gelatinous. Incredibly salty. Chicken quite nice. Pastry disappointing and soggy
