Serving suggestion - pie sandwich

A previous serving suggestion blog image was "inspired" by some poor examples of images on food packaging. The image was semi-abstract, including cut-out photo images of food items. The odd appearance of some food items was obtained by including the shadows in these cut-outs such that the shadow cast by a lettuce leaf is included in its photo cut-out. The colour and placing of the shadow is therefore deliberately inappropriate to the lighting although it works for me.
The image below is more realistic, but again each item is a cut out from a separate photo. Shadows have been selectively added after the fact, but these are still deliberately odd, so that there is something not right about the overall image.

Pie sandwich

The pie sandwich is something that I first encountered in an episode of Coronation Street, being eaten by Corrie's Gary Mallett. The Urban Dictionary tells me it is also known as a Wigan sandwich. This food concept is also known in Dundee.
