Introduction
Founded back in 1862, Cookes are the oldest surviving Pie & Mash shops in London’s East End. These began as Eel & Pie shops in the 1700s. In Victorian London some 600 piemen walked the streets. They rowed very early to Billingsgate Fish Market by the Thames for eels. Long a staple food for poor Londoners, eel pies had to be sold on the day of baking.
