Made this for Christmas dinner and WOW! Definitely the best one I have ever made. The whole family was just about silent for the first ten minutes enjoying this meal. The sauce alone was just transcendent. I would really recommend this for any special occasion. My only issue with this dish is how to carve the dang thing and have it look remotely coherent. The pastry always seems to go one way and the meat another. I would also say that it really helps to follow their timeline and spread the work over three days.
