    Pigeon Pie

    Ingredients
    4-5 pigeons, drawn
    salt and pepper
    250g/8oz stewing beef
    250g/8oz shortcrust pastry
    beaten egg to glaze
    2 tsp cornflour
    300ml/10fl oz stock

    Method
    1. preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
    2. Joint the birds into two breast joints and two leg joints each and stew the rest of the carcass in a little water to make stock for the gravy.
    3. Cut the beef into small pieces and line a deep 20cm/8in pie dish with these.
    4. Lay the pigeon joints on top, cover with water, add salt and pepper, then cover the pie dish with greased paper or aluminium foil. Place in the oven and simmer for 1½ hours.
    5. Remove from the oven and raise oven temperature to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
    6. Cover the pie with the shortcrust pastry, brush the top with beaten egg, put back into the oven and bake until the pastry is golden brown.
    7. Make a gravy by mixing 10g/2tsp cornflour with a little cold water and add to 300ml/10fl oz of the warmed stock. Allow to thicken while stirring, season and serve with the pie.

    All this talk of pigeons & ravens has reminded me of this raven (by Poe) parody:

    The Raven's tale

    Swaggerin' home in raven fashion, feelin' rather bold and dashin',
    Thought I'd do some poet-bashin'; saw this light above a door -
    A sign that E.A. Poe was porin' o'er some problem bleak and borin',
    Like how to rhyme with Ulalume, or find a maiden named Lenore.
    And when I heard the morbid nutter mutter, 'Oh my lost Lenore!'
    I tapped my beak against his door.

    Presently the joyless mortal opened up his gloomy portal,
    Eyed me with misgiving and inquired what was my visit for.
    I said I was a poor old raven, tuckered out and seekin' haven;
    Could I rest awhile upon the bust of Pallas o'er his door?
    'The bust? Well, if you must,' he answered, clearly shaken to the core,
    'But what news have you of Lenore?'

    'By Jeez,' I mused, 'by flamin' golly, this man is clearly off his trolley;
    I'll play upon his melancholy as I perch above his door.'
    I said: 'Dear Brother Poe, I'm sorry I cannot really ease your worry
    Except for some reward which you might bring from your provision store.
    A piece of steak would do me nicely - even offal if you're poor.
    Oh, then I might remember more.'

    'Corrupt and greedy bird!' he chided. 'Is my sorrow thus derided?
    One who's lost a love, as I did, on the Night's Plutonian shore,
    Regards your attitude as callous, so please quit the bust of Pallas,
    Where you seem quite disposed to stay for half the dreary night or more;
    Then pray be good enough to clean the raven-droppings from the floor
    Before you're banished from my door.'

    I stared him out and wouldn't waver. (Clean up the floor? Do me a favour!)
    So finally I got to savour some small offerings from his store.
    He fed me, but I kept on stallin'; told him I was past recallin'
    Anything of his fair maiden, anything of lost Lenore.
    I broke the wretched fellow's spirit with my croaks of 'Nevermore',
    And I'm immortalized for sure.


    There's more here - my personnal favourite is the Eversor. BTW, do you like my new avatar? I made it myself .
