Chicken and Kumara Pie with Thyme Pastry

I know I have AWOL for what seems like ages. It's not that I don't have anything to blog fact I have a backlog of photos taken just waiting for some time to get onto the computer and write about them. However we are in the middle of doing some things to our house and I have been painting like crazy before we have new carpet laid in a few weeks. As well as that I have had one small sick child at home which somewhat hampers progress.

Because of all this and because I am about to run out the door to get Harry from school I thought I would at least post the photos of this pie I made last night. It's from my most favourite cooking magazine called Dish (Issue 42...the latest one out). OMG you MUST MUST MUST try this. Buy the magazine or steal it from a friend but whatever you do make this pie. The pastry is so easy and deliver on flavour and texture. The filling is tasty, herbaceous and very very moreish. It was devoured by all of us with the children having seconds. I would have too if I weren't watching my portion sizes (not that I have been all that good lately). There are lots of other fantastic recipes in this issue so you won't regret buying up the Chinese Spiced Beef and Mushroom Pie so watch this space!


  1. Could I convince you or one of the other NICU girls to scan the recipe to me?? It looks 'delish'.. Meredith

  2. Meredith send me your email address and I'll send it to you. It's SO yummy!

  3. this recipe caused a huge pie baking frenzy. I have been baking up a storm of pies and dropping then off at friends places. I love the power of a good recipe:)
