The ancient Egyptians are believed to have eaten pies filled with figs or dates 3,000 years ago. The oldest known pie recipe, however, was for a rye-crusted goat’s cheese and honey pie in ancient Rome about 2,000 years ago. Pies first appeared in Britain in the 12th century, usually spelt ‘pye’ and containing meat. Fruit pies did not appear until the 16th century. The crust of the pie was then most commonly known as a ‘coffyn of paste’. The base was a rectangular box of pastry. The World Custard Pie Championships were first held in 1967 in the village of Coxheath, Kent. Teams of four stand eight feet apart and hurl their pies at the opponents. Points are awarded for hits and deducted for misses. Source: Express
