    Many thanks for a great recipe. Being a normal carnivore, I've never envisaged myself ever doing a nut roast but this one is super. Relatively easy to do, although I would add, dont pile the stuffing along the middle of the pastry. Move it to a 1/3 down and fold the largest empty area of pastry over. Had to push the stuffing back in when uising the half-way line. Would give it 9.5out of 10.  -  20 Nov 2011
