A little effort


  1. Step 1:

    Make the pastry and leave it to chill in the fridge for at least a couple of hours to firm up the dough. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6.

  2. Step 2:

    Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and add salt. Add the celeriac and swede and blanch for 2 minutes, then drain them and put them in a bowl. Leave them to cool completely, then add the onion, cheese, mushroom ketchup and sage. Season with salt and pepper and mix thoroughly.

  3. Step 3:

    Divide the dough into 8 pieces and roll each piece into a circle with a 12–13cm diameter – about the size of a saucer. Divide the filling into 8 portions. Take a circle of pastry and place a portion of filling in a line along the middle of the circle. Brush the exposed pastry with the beaten egg, then bring the 2 halves

    together, and seal, crimping the edges Cornish-pasty style. Repeat to make all the pasties, then brush them with beaten egg and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

  4. Step 4:

    Bake the pasties in the oven for about 45 minutes until the pastry is golden brown and crisp. Transfer the pasties to a cooling rack to cool down so the underside of the pastry doesn’t go soggy. Nice hot or cold.
