The ultimate Christmas meal with all the trimmings has been created by a master baker. It’s neatly packed in a festive pie.
Gareth Mason’s Yuletide Pie, which can feed four families, includes Vegetables, turkey, gravy, and stuffing can all be stuffed into a pie crust.
It measures approximately 10 inches in diameter by 5 inches in depth. The pastry weighs more than 35 ounces, and has roughly 3,500 calories.
The pie was made by Mr Mason (34), who is also the head chef at Absolute Bar and Bistro, Westhoughton.
Before filling the pie crust, he blind baked the pastry.
Although the pie is not currently available on Mason’s menu, he plans to make a smaller version near Christmas.

Mason said, “It is a huge piece of pie.” It is so full of calories that it would be difficult for me to even count them.
“We have parsnips, shredded sprouts, carrots, roast turkey breasts, potato roasts, stuffing balls, turkey gravy, etc. All wrapped up in a thick, thin shortcrust pastry shell.
It would easily feed four people. This is a complete Christmas meal. It can be dropped off at Christmas and the work will be done for you.
“I made my pastry thick so that the pie would stay in place. The pie must contain at least 500g pastry. It is delicious.
The pie was called a “northerner’s best Christmas gift” by him. He also mentioned that the turkey gravy was used as a binding agent and that the topping could be poured on top to add flavour.
Mason continued, “I was thinking, “I wonder how a Christmas dinner would taste in a pie?”
“It is actually very delicious. It tastes just like Christmas dinner.
“It was an experiment that I did to test it and see how it worked.”
“We will have a Christmas menu, and I might put on a pie but it’ll be smaller than the one we currently have.”
This pastry is 10 inches wide and 5 inches deep. It weighs over 35 ozs. and has approximately 3,500 calories.
