  • About

This pie was served at the Reform Club in the middle of the nineteenth century. The recipe was probably devised by the great chef Alexis Soyer, at the request of one of the members. The pie must be made in two stages and takes at least one hour to prepare, apart from the pastry, but it is a most impressive and worthwhile dish for a special occasion. Nothing should be offered with it except a green salad served
