I am a man, therefore I am very easily pleased apparently. So when cookery editor Maggie said she was planning a feature with a very simple concept, “Christmas In A Pie” I was immediately sold. “Say no more, Maggie, it’s a winner,” was the gist of my response. I mean, it’s pies with various festive fillings. What’s not to love? You don’t need to take my word for it though, turn to page 20 for some truly fantastic recipe ideas that will give your Christmas table the real wow factor. The idea was great, but the finished product is spectacular! Enjoy the issue and have a great week.
