Makes 36

Ingredients (serves 10)

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small brown onion, chopped
350g lean beef mince
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 small zucchini, grated
1 small carrot, grated
2 tablespoons gravy powder
2 tablespoons tomato paste
4 sheets frozen ready-rolled shortcrust pastry, partially thawed
1 tablespoon milk
Tomato sauce, to serve

Method

Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until softened. Add mince. Cook, breaking up mince with a wooden spoon, for 5 to 6 minutes or until browned and cooked through.

Add garlic, zucchini and carrot. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until zucchini is tender. Stir in gravy powder, tomato paste and 1/4 cup cold water. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until mixture thickens. Cool.

Preheat panggangan to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Grease three 12-hole round patty pans. Using a 6.5cm cutter, cut 36 rounds from 2 pastry sheets. Cut seventy-two 1cm x 6cm strips from remaining pastry. Line holes of prepared pans with pastry rounds.

Spoon level tablespoons of mince mixture into pastry rounds. Top each with 2 strips of pastry to form a cross. Brush with milk. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, swapping trays during cooking, or until pastry is golden brown and pies heated through. Stand for 1 minute. Transfer to a dish. Serve with tomato sauce.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
