This is a deliciously rich, savoury pie. You can simply use white mushrooms or re-hydrate some dried wild mushrooms but I like the flavour combination of crimini, portobello and oyster mushrooms. Use supermarket ready rolled pastry - it's so much easier!

I made this pie, but I only used button mushrooms, & I used around 220mls of Guinness instead of red wine,then I made enough home made shortcrust pastry to toally enclose the pie. it was absolutly delicious.

Fantastic and very easy to follow recipe. I used Fursty Ferret ale in my pie but it tasted lovely. Next time I'll just use a puff pastry topping though as I found the bottom and side of the shortcrust pie too soggy.

I have never written a review before but after eating this pie I feel compelled to, it was exceptional! I thought the filling ingredients were excessive but it did all fit in to my store bought pastry pie shell. The only change I made was using ale instead of wine, however it's only 3 tbspns so Wine would not overpower the taste.
