I was quite pleased with the way this turned out, although I would call it a galette rather than a charlotte. Technically, I suppose it is neither.

I cannot give you the copyright recipe from this month's La Cucina Italiana and I cannot tell you that it wasn't a lot of bother, because it was. It contains cooked chicken, mashed potato, mashed aubergine and seasoning. I added mint instead of parsley leaves, partly because I didn't have any parsley and partly because mint is a traditional accompaniment to aubergine in Sicily. The tomato slices round the side wouldn't stand up in the cooking ring so I pressed them on after the "galette" had been refrigerated for a few hours. On the top are grilled tomatoes and cooked potato slices seasoned with oregano.

Now I'm thinking up a vegetarian filling. Any suggestions would be welcome.
