  • Butter, for frying
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 large carrots, sliced into lozenges
  • 2 large leeks, sliced into 2 cm pieces
  • 200ml double cream
  • 200ml chicken or turkey stock
  • 500g cooked turkey, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 200g cooked ham, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 10 button mushrooms, halved
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp chopped tarragon
  • Thyme leaves
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 225g puff pastry
  • 1 free range egg, beaten, for glazing
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan, finely grated


    1. Preheat the oven to 200C/ Gas 6. Heat a large pan over a medium heat. Add a knob of butter and saute the onion, carrots and leeks for 5 minutes until the carrots start to soften.
    2. Cover with the cream and stock and simmer until starts to thicken. Finish by adding the turkey, ham, mushrooms, cayenne and herbs. Season to taste.

This is delicious. I leave out the carrots though!. I use Gordon Ramsay's rough puff pastry recipe which complements this perfectly - a great way to use up leftovers, and a quick meal to whip up.

I did this with cubed fried turkey breast, left out the tarragon, served with mash and peas - was lovely, everyone liked it. My Lithuanian guests asked if this was royal food, when I said it was traditional cooking.

Agree it is really tasty, so easy to make, used bacon instead of ham and topped with shortcrust pastry, went down a storm as part of a hot buffet.....
