Choosing a Game Pie for Christmas
Fair GameI look forward to tucking into an average of three traditional Christmas lunches over the festive period, what with family visits and (mostly) general greediness, but I always try and leave room for what's pushed out on the tea trolley for elevenses or supper. A game pie will certainly make an entrance at some stage. Like choosing your Christmas tree, you need to select your game pie carefully to avoid any disappointment. It needs to earn a place at the trolley.
