Mushroom and Chive Pithivier.

Here is a simple recipe for a holiday pie, that’s great hot, warm or cold.

Pithivier is a pie that originates in France.  It can be sweet or savoury,  but often has a sweet almond filling, and with cherries or plums.

The pie can be made as lots of individual pies, or one big one.

It’s hard to open a French cookery book without coming upon oodles of cream, lashings of butter, endless cheese, an infinite number of eggs and slabs of meat…..

So to redress the balance just a little, here’s a veganised recipe for a savoury pie, that has to be a crowd-pleaser.

French in style, peaceful in ingredients.

Mushrooms and chives in a savoury bechamel sauce, encased in flaky puff pastry.

Perfect for a picnic too……
