      I'm from Montreal so I'm quite familiar with tourtière but this one just didn't measure up. It wasn't particularly flavorful and the texture was off. I followed the recipe exactly. I don't use a gravy. If a pie needs gravy to taste good then the pie isn't good in the first place. That's just me though.

      My family just loved this meat pie recipe. My Mom and her friend told me it was the best they ever had.
