I’m spending a few days in Valencia this week, and I went to the market this morning, where something really interesting happened: the sellers started sharing their tips and tricks with me in abundance.
☠️ This is a great pie to bake for Halloween… or any time you feel witchy! 🧙🏽♀️🧙🏽♀️ ☠️
I got Malcolm Bird‘s fabulous book “The witch’s handbook” as a Christmas present in 1989 and we enjoyed reading it and making some of the crafty activities, but we never baked much at home, and also most of the ingredients in the cooking section were a bit unusual for Spanish palates, so the cooking recipes were sort of out of reach.
I still liked the book so much that I recently bought a second hand English edition—and it came just in time for Halloween. The best! 🎃
As I browsed through the book, the Poison Pie recipe caught my eye. Why not bake it, now that I feel confident to do so?
I wanted something soothing and autumnal like a shepherd’s pie but I was also feeling quite adventurous and experimental, so I ended up with this delicious alternative, which also happens to be vegan 😇
