My trials, tribulations and triumphs while attempting to bake my way through Lorraine Pascales book, Baking made Easy, and hopefully proving that yes, it is.

This is one of the few savoury dishes I've got left to do, and most of them involve pastry! This chicken pie has a lovely creamy sauce with tarragon, which I absolutely love, I am a huge aniseed fan so this was right up my street. I'm not sure if it's because I baste the pastry with milk but sometimes the pastry can taste a little strange, and not quite like normal shortcrust. Maybe its the butter or flour I use, or even the egg but something doesn't seem quite right. I'll keep trying, I've got quite a few pastry dishes coming up in the next few days with easter lunches so I'll have to push the boat out and use a proper eggy wash to glaze the pastry instead. This was a tasty pie, Zoe is slowly become accustomed to pastry so it might become quite a staple in our house!
