Time Taken: 44′ 21″
You can find this recipe on the Channel 4 website (click here).
Also, Jamie Oliver has a video on how to assemble the pie under “How To’s” on his website here.
Andrew (11): What’s for dessert?
Maureen: There is no dessert tonight. I am rebelling against the dessert dictatorship of Jamie Oliver.
Nicholas (7): Oh no!
Maureen: You’ll survive. We don’t usually have dessert on weeknights anyway. What do you think?
Andrew: I like it.
Nicholas: Me too!
Andrew: I liked the pie best, because I helped you make it.
Maureen: It’s basil dressing. Don’t worry. It’s nothing spicy.
Andrew: That’s right. Nothing out of date, either. (Using an announcer’s voice) “No out of date Five-Spice was used in the making of this meal.”
Maureen: Would you want me to make it again?
Andrew: I suppose so, yes.
Nicholas: I’m in the middle about it.
Maureen: I can’t believe how well it turned out. It literally looks like the picture. That never happens.
Maureen: Also, I needed two packages of Filo pastry because you need 12 filo sheets in all, and one package (as described in the recipe) only has six. I would make this again. I might change the filling slightly next time to add some cottage cheese.
