    If you're not one of the hordes who've already escaped London for the holidays, you're about to be rewarded for your loyalty.

    If there's one thing that we've missed during this latest lockdown, it's the lack of pies from Calum Franklin and the Holborn Dining room team.

    Over the past few months we've reported on a lot of restaurant closures. But we're personally gutted to have heard the news last night that Piebury Corner will not be reopening either of its restaurants.

    We (and many, many others) have often waxed lyrical about Calum Franklin and his preternaturally gifted skills at pie-making. But how - how? - could we ever hope to get to that level of pie crafting? It looks like the answer is on the way because he's about to release a book that's all about pie craft.
