Hi Shaun.

What is a butter pie?

You haven't lived, have you?

(A quick Google enlightened me: 'a traditional savoury pie consisting mainly of onions and potatoes'. It's a Lancashire dish, also known as Friday pie or Catholic pie. Southampton-born interviewer offers her apologies.) 

 

 

BBC Good Food (a trustworthy source) informs me that this is a butter pie. Yes, Shaun is from The North.
