Braised honey beef short rib, walnut and filo pies

Braised honey beef short rib, walnut and filo pies might seem a strange combination, but they’re a delicious strange combination! Slightly sweet beef is delicious with the earthiness of nuts, and you can’t go wrong with a topping of golden pastry. A wonderful and robust dinner dish.

Baby spinach, feta and piquante pepper pies

These baby spinach, feta and piquante pepper pies are incredibly more-ish and are a great new take on the classic Greek spanakopita. The creamy and salty feta is perfect with a crunch of golden pastry, and peppers are a great way to add a bit of a kick.

Fish and feta pie

Fish and feta pie is a healthy spin on a traditional high-carb pie. This yummy main is just as creamy as a traditional savoury pie, but without the aftereffect of feeling uncomfortably full. A wonderfully flavoured, guilt-free dinner.

Steak and mushroom pie

Steak and mushrooms are great friends and work just as well in a pie as they do when fried or grilled. You can use pretty much any mushroom in this dish, but I love using darker varieties like field or portobello mushrooms – they give the gravy a really rich, dark colour. The cheese is a bit of an unusual twist, but it adds a richness and good texture to the filling. Brilliant!

Classic apple pie

It’s right there in the name. Classic apple pie is a cornerstone of baking, and is one of the most timeless dishes you can make. When you picture a pie cooling on a windowsill, it’s almost guaranteed that there’s a sweet, lightly spiced filling inside. A guaranteed hit, every time!
