  • About

This impressive pie has a hot-water crust pastry case – so it looks similar to the classic English pork pie – and is filled with a combination of mushrooms, herbs and vegetables, with or without the addition of the ham hock option on the next page. Don’t be put off by the pastry – it is surprisingly straightforward to make as long as you work with it when it’s slightly warm and malleable. The beauty of this substantial pie is that it is equally good served warm for a Sunday lunch or celebratory meal with all the trimmings as it is cold for a picnic or as part of a buffet lunch.
