Chicken & Mushroom Pie

Chicken & Mushroom Pie

This Chicken & Mushroom pie never disappoints, and is really quick and easy to make. The simple flavour combinations work well here, the sweetness of the chicken along with the slightly acidic reduced white wine and fresh thyme, and salty pancetta really get the taste buds tingling. And there is only one thing that can make this combination better?….flaky, buttery pastry!

This is another family favourite in our household, it normally forms part of one of our Autumn or Winter dinners, however, with a cold snap here in the North East this week, we felt we needed some comfort food!

Roast Ham with Honey Mustard & Chipotle

Roast Ham with Honey Mustard & Chipotle

The ham and pease pudding stottie is Traditional to the North East and Northumberland. It is the perfect solution to a rumbling stomach after a day of fresh air and a bit of graft!

Sometimes it is the most basic of foods that can be the most satisfying, a simply boiled joint of gammon finished off in the oven with a tasty glaze, carved thickly and served in a freshly baked stottie and pease pudding….delicious!
