Chef finds perfect solution for stress-free Christmas dinner – a 6,500 calorie pie

CHEF Gareth Mason’s solution to a stress-free Christmas dinner is as easy as pie — but at about 6,500 calories it’s definitely not one for a solo diner.

Gareth, 34, is proud of his creation which crams turkey, veg, stuffing and pigs in blankets into shortcrust pastry.

It is 10in in diameter, 5in deep and weighs more than 2lb.

Gareth, of Westhoughton, Gtr Manchester, dubbed it a “northerner’s best Christmas present”.

He said: "It would feed a family of four in one pie, easily.

"It’s a self-contained Christmas dinner. You could just drop it off on Christmas day and all the leg work is done.

“I made the pastry quite thick so it holds itself in the dish.

"I used about 500g of pastry, the pie itself must be at least 1kg with the filling. It’s a good feast."
