Cholera Pie {from Winter Cabin Cooking}

My mum found this lovely vegetarian recipe in Sainsbury’s magazine, where Aggie MacKenzie (of How Clean Is Your House? fame – who it transpires is as much a whizz in the kitchen as she is at telling people their homes are minging) had tried out a recipe for Heaven and Earth pie from Winter Cabin Cooking […]
