Savoury Artichoke Pie is made with artichokes and grapes coated in a creamy cheese sauce, then topped with egg and crisp pastry.
Savory is a culinary herb of the MINT family. There are two varieties of savory: summer savory and winter savory, both similar in flavour. Fresh savory is therefore obtainable throughout the year, al-though dried savory is also used in cooking. The herb is native to southern
Europe and northern Africa, although it is possible to grow savory in temperate climates.
Savory is very aromatic and has a slightly bitter taste. The leaves are used to flavour sauces, roast meat, stuffings, sausages, soups and as a substitute for mint when boiling peas, beans and pulses.
