Pastry school

Had the best day at Cheshire Cookery School with chef Alex who taught us how to make excellent pastry and then turn it into pies and puddings!

Fruits of today’s labour: a Chicken and Tarragon Pie (which is a proper pie with a base and everything), Spiced Beef Empanadas and a Chimchurri Sauce, and a Steamed Lemon Pudding (that is actually baked!)

Pastry has never been something I’ve been too confident at making but I now feel very well equipped to give it a go more often!
