This is Helm Bar's signature pie recipe.
Press the short crust pastry into pie tin. Blind bake the pastry until lightly golden.
Pre-heat the oven to 160 degrees. Season the flour with salt & pepper and lightly coat the shanks, shaking to remove the excess.
Peel and dice the onion, carrot, celery and leek into 1cm pieces.
Heat olive oil in a heavy-based frying pan. Add the shanks and seal them in the pan well. Transfer them into a large flameproof casserole once they are brown.
Once the shanks are out, add the diced vegetables with the garlic and herbs mix into the pan and cook until golden. Add the tomato paste and cook for 5 minutes. Spoon this mixture over the meat in the casserole dish.
Deglaze the pan with wine, stirring to loosen the sediment, and pour this mixture over the casserole.
Add enough stock to the casserole to cover the contents and bring to the boil.
Cover the casserole with lid or foil and bake for 1.5 hours or until the meat is tender and pulling away from the bone. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the stock.
Once cool carefully remove meat from the bones, discarding any fat or sinews.
Strain the stock and reduce to a rich glossy sauce. Pour the sauce back with the shank meat.
Place this mixture into the partially cooked short-crust pastry case, then place puff pastry over the top to form a lid. Trim and seal the edges to complete the pie.
Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 10 minutes until golden.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
