A sweet treat - Banoffi Pie

Banoffi pie crochet pattern

Today I have a sweet little treat for you - a free Banoffi Pie pattern, to celebrate the release of a cookbook I've been working on for the last couple of years with my Dad called 'Fish Bananas'. My Dad, Ian Dowding, is a chef and most of my childhood was spent living above our family restaurant called Qunicy's ran by my Mum and Dad in East Sussex in the UK. 

My Dad is also the originator of the now famous Banoffi Pie which was developed at The Hungry Monk in 1971.

This is the book which will be available to buy next week here. For the original Banoffi recipe click here. See below for the crochet pattern - great for little ones who love play food as each element is separate and can be taken apart and re-built.
