  4. Salt and black pepper to taste
  5. 1 package (14 oz/400 g) puff pastry

    Confused. The picture does not seem to match recipe. Recipe indicates that asparagus and chicken mixture are wrapped in pastry, but photo shows asparagus pieces on top of pastry. ????

      Hi Joan, you are absolutely right! This book and photo was published in 2010 and obviously the food stylist at the time took some artistic liberties. Sorry if this has caused any confusion. If you can disregard the photo and try the recipe as written, you will get tasty results.

    Glad it wasn’t just me who was a bit mixed up with the photo & directions, I read it over at least 3 times?
