STARGAZY PIE

A Cornish fish pie made with fish heads sticking out of the crust around the rim looking towards the sky. In 'Observer Guide to British Cookery' (1984) Jane Grigson writes that:

    "it is a specialty of Mousehole where they make it on 23 December every year, Tom Bawcock's Eve, in memory of the fisherman who saved the town from a hungry Christmas one stormy winter."
