An excellent recipe. The fairly long preperation time is well worth the effort. As with many recipes it is a good idea to familiarise oneself with the general procedure before making a start. Cheddar was not available so I used Ementaler instead and added a few capers to give a little extra zest. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the quantities given were just right to fill the 10" spring form pan which I had decided to use. If you do use a spring form you will, as has been mentioned before, need to use slightly more pastry for the base which can be substracted from the amount required for the top. As many others have done I prepared everything the evening before and simply baked for lunch the next day. No stress, no mess. The resulting pie was truly impressive and tasted every bit as good as it looked !
