We took inspiration and flavours from a traditional meat pie and packaged them into a hassle-free holiday present: a galette! No pastry skills or pie moulds needed, as this less formal dish looks pretty and tastes great, no matter what. The seamless crust’s centre is piled with a festive combination of sautéed and spiced ground pork, onion, celeriac and dates, folded up and topped with enough diced celery and chopped parsley to cover up any little blips or bumps you don’t want your guests to see.
