Goose Pie

Posted By Stephen


Having half a goose left after our pre-Christmas dinner yesterday, we embarked on a goose pie project. Kerri had seen Jamie cooking a turkey and leek pie, which served as partial inspiration. We only had one leek though, so we added an onion. And we didn’t have creme fraiche, so we used chicken stock. And we didn’t have puff pastry so we used shortcrust pastry… etc, etc.

Kerri found my rendition of a flying goose on top of the pie amusing, but I think it added a bit of interest to the pie, given that it was rather messy / rustic – the pastry broke as I was trying to get it on and we didn’t have an egg to brush it with so it doesn’t look nice and golden. We made a valiant effort but only managed to eat half of the pie. We’ll be having the other half for lunch tomorrow.
