CHICKEN, BUTTERMILK & WILD GARLIC PIE

To me, chicken pie is comfort food personified. Lifting a big golden pie out of the oven and bringing it to a table of hungry mouths evokes warmth, family and cosiness. Here I have updated the much-loved classic with the addition of buttermilk, which adds a great tanginess that lifts the dish into something more complex. The inclusion of wild garlic (fast becoming a favourite ingredient of mine and increasingly widely available) not only provides a delicate sweet garlic note, but also turns the filling a vibrant, pleasing green.

SLOW-COOKED SHEPHERD’S PIE WITH MISO MASH

Mum often made us shepherd’s pie with leftover roast lamb, minced through the old hand mincer. I didn’t love the texture of minced, cooked lamb, but I love slow-cooked lamb that just falls apart. While this recipe takes time to cook slowly it is very simple, has very little hands-on time and you are rewarded with fantastic slow-cooked flavours and texture heightened with a hit of miso.
