As a country, we’re HUGE fanatics of pies.
Regardless of whether sweet or exquisite, we can appreciate a pie at any event. Nonetheless, there is much level headed discussion over what constitutes as a ‘pie’.

Therefore, this would prohibit any goulash dishes with a baked good top as the cake needs to totally encase the filling. Moreover, they were campaigning for any dishes without a baked good base to be stripping of the name of ‘pie’!
