A staple of dinner

A staple of dinner tables, bakeries and snack bars worldwide, pies and tarts are enjoyed anywhere and at any time of the day. Pies come in a huge variety: holiday pies, homemade pies, grand pies, tiny pies, sweet pies and savoury pies. There are pies for afternoon snacks and pies for late-night tummy grumbles. Here are some of the world’s favourites. Words Lorria Sahmet Photos Happy Yuen
