This recipes comes from Dancer and Graphic artist Martin James. Martin, who originally comes from New Zealand, is now living with his wife and children in Copenhagen as he is currently principal Dancer with The Royal Danish Ballet. You will be able to find out more about Martin when his Biography page is published.

Being so gifted it seems unfair that Martin should also be talented in the kitchen as well but he has agreed to share some of his recipes with us which is great news.


8oz Short Crust Pastry
A deep pie dish
1 large cooking apple, peeled, cored and sliced
1 onion - sliced
2 large tomatoes, skinned & sliced
Pinch of sage

Pinch of mixed herbs
3/4lb of sausage meat

  • Line an 8" pie dish with 3/4 of the pastry.
  • Fill with layers of tomatoes, apple, onion.

  • Cover with pastry and decorate with pastry holly leaves etc.
