Michelin star chef Tom Kerridge is selling a fish pie for £60 and you have to heat it yourself.

To be fair, it looks absolutely mouth-watering, but the dish only serves four people and that price tag’s not half hefty.

Created by Tom and his team at The Coach (that’s the celebrity cook’s Michelin-starred boozerv in Buckinghamshire, for all you non-foodies) the pie is billed as being ‘indulgent and utterly comforting’ and is packed with white fish, salmon, and haddock.

All of the above are smothered in a ‘silky-smooth’ saffron béchamel and the pie will be ready for scoffing after half an hour in the oven. Still, £60 is a lot to fork out for a single pie.

It’s not the first time Tom has come under fire for rustling up expensive dishes. In August, he defended charging £87 for a steak meal following furious backlash.

The MasterChef star was blasted for the pricey sirloin steak and chips at his pub, but Tom – who owns a total of six restaurants in LondonManchester and Buckinghamshire – defiantly stood by his decision, saying: ‘You don’t help to feed children by making successful people ashamed because I am one of those people.

‘I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you want to ride in a Bentley, it costs money.

‘If you’re on a budget there’s an intensely farmed Ford Focus available round the corner and that’s fine by me,’ he added to The Times.

Elsewhere, Tom, 49, said the electricity bill at his pubs could skyrocket from £60,000 to £240,000.

Speaking in September, he revealed he’s expected to have to withstand a rise from £5,000 a month in bills to £30,000 – an increase of 500%.

Chatting to BBC Radio 5 Live, the celebrated chef said: ‘It’s just absolutely ludicrous, and that’s just us as a business.’

He continued: ‘This is every business – every business is getting quoted that because there is no price cap on business energy.’

During the interview, Tom also warned that many restaurants and pubs will be forced to close their doors to customers due to unaffordable bills.

He said: ‘It’s non-viable. The numbers are so ridiculous and ludicrous – no wonder so many businesses are closing or talking of closing.’

Tom also made the point that food and drink businesses will start to fail if the prices on their menus can’t keep up with the rising costs.

He explained: ‘Imagine if you’re buying a pint for £5, [and then] come December that pint is going to be £35. You’re not going to go out.’

‘If you’re taking the family out for a sneaky pizza on a Tuesday, that’s normally £100. If, at those restaurants, the price suddenly went to exactly the same as they’re getting quoted for their energy, your pizza is now £600.’ has reached out to Tom’s reps for comment.
