LIKE millions of other foodies across Britain, it was love at first bite.

A rich, meaty gravy, oozing like molten lava from a flaky pastry case. I can’t remember how old I was when I first tried one, but it was heaven, and mine has been a life of pie ever since.

So, when the ubiquitous high street pastry emporium Greggs threw open its doors for the first time in three months yesterday, I was front of the queue.

Coronavirus has wrecked so many aspects of our lives, but forcing baked goods’ aficionados like me to endure three months of cold turkey has been cruel.

In future years we will look back at this date and surely honour the anniversary: June 18 – the day civilisation finally returned to the high street.
