Perfection is a very large claim indeed, but English celebrity chef Jamie Oliver always comes up with the goods. Filo and puff pastry are the unusual order of the day here in a recipe which eschews both the standard crumbly, sugary, pastry and our preconceptions of what a mince pie should look like. The result however, is delicious. Pre-bought mincemeat is combined with a splash of sherry or brandy, almonds, Clementine zest and dried blueberries for a light yet flavorsome filling. A treat – but despite the recipe’s claim that this takes an hour, it’s best to allow a little extra time to perfect the delicate presentation.
