"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
TIP: The original recipe stated that the pie should be baked 45-50 minutes in a preheated 350 º GAS oven. IF an electric oven is used, it may be necessary to add 15-20 minutes to baking time. Begin testing the pie with a tooth pick after 45 minutes.
