I done a pie!

Yep, a great big chicken and leek pie courtesy of the Pieminister recipe book.

Very nice filling but a nasty case of the dreaded “soggy bottom” (© Mary Berry) which was apparently caused by using the wrong type of dish.

In my defence, I would point out that the recipe says to use a “lasagne type of dish” which is what I did but apparently you should use metal tins for pies. The annoying thing is the Pieminister book says this at the beginning so I don’t know why it then says you should use a lasagne dish. No-one makes lasagne in a metal tin do they.
