Leftover duck and leek pie

On Christmas eve eve (last Friday) we watched a Jamie Oliver Christmas special. He described his leftover turkey and leek pie which looked amazing. For our Christmas we had a roast duck and we thought it would go well as a leftover duck and leek pie. The other twist to the recipe is that instead of rolling chestnuts into the pastry, walnuts were rolled in. It gave the pastry a great flavour and a fantastic texture.

On the plate I found turning the pie upside down better as a vessel to absorb the amazing gravy that coms from preparing the filling.

What I haven’t added are the images of me eating the leftover pie from the pie dish and all the gravy poured into it. Well not all the gravy, but most of it.

  3. My husband is complaining that he offered to make a turkey and leek pie for dinner tonight but I complained that it was ‘too heavy’. We had tinned lentil soup instead
