I have a batch of frozen delicious stew I made earlier but you can make your large batch of stew (any type will do) the day before - stews always taste better the next day. I made Hugh's 'rough puff pastry' before but this time I used store bought puff pastry. Hey I am making this for a potluck and in great numbers, so the easier and quicker things get done the better! :)
Paired with a simple salad of mini gem lettuce, japanese cucumber, tomato, red chilli, sliced onion, with pomegranate molasses and olive oil dressing seasoned with salt and black pepper.
Inspired by Hugh's recipe on page 112 of:
