Sprinkling in savoury for me, can see I'm not alone.

And the reason for your interest?

Usually about half what the recipes states ...which wasn't an option BA.

Just a small sprinkling in savoury, why, what do you do?

Usually just a sprinkling, but I put a teeny bit too much in yesterday by mistake and was wondering what everyone else did.

As it happens, it was a vaguely successful error I made a leek & haddock tart, and hadn't salted the filling at all. Sometimes I do like to try salt-free cooking, but on this occasion the slightly saltier pastry was a nice counterfoil. Worked quite well. So it wasn't salt-free cooking then before anyone mentions

I do - I'm very partial to a nice pie. Has to be good shortcrust pastry though.

My Mum is queen of 'short' pastry!
A bit too short for my liking because it just goes everywhere.

Whenever she eats out, she avoids pastry because it's not as good as her own (bless her).

Me too, though the Beer Engine at Newton St Cyres does a good steak pie (just missing a spot of kidley)

ooo, that's the second mention of the Beer Engine in as many weeks ... MUST go back there next time we're in Devon.

Is it still as scruffy as it was ...please say they haven't tarted it up?

It's quite smart
I had a similar shock at seeing the Black Lion in Llanbadarn Fawr recently. Used to be a real comfy old dive. Now the back is smart looking restaurant.

I do so wish they wouldn't do that to tired, slightly rough round the edges but wonderfully homely pubs which you can go to looking and feeling decidedly scruffy.

Why do they think we all want chintz or worse?
