Hello everyone. We are (still) Llinos Mai and Hannah McPake and we are (still) blogging about making Green Man // Red Woman, the show we are very excited to be taking to Green Man 2014 with National Theatre Wales. Catch us across all four days of the festival doing our thing across the site and in our bower in the woods behind the Walled Garden. 


We are very busy making the show but we’ve just found out that Pie Minister is one of the food vans at this year’s festival, and this makes us very excited. We bloody love pies. So we’ve had a quick rest and whilst relaxing over a couple of glasses of cold squash we’ve decided to create our own RED WOMAN PIE, inspired by this wonderful news. It’s fiery, mysterious and meaty – just like our Red Woman. We wanted to make a cooking video just like another one of our fave females Delia, but we are too busy practicing spells ready for the show so this will have to do. But we’ll probably get a show on the telly soon anyway so we can do it then.  Anyway, we digress. Here’s the recipe.  And if you make it – send us a picture! We’re @GMRW_ #ntwgreenman


Hannah and Llinos’ Red Woman Pie

A lot of meat

25 whole chillies (Hannah does it with 45)

1 medium onion

4 cloves of garlic (for that certain je ne sai quoi round this up to 65)

2 tbsp olive oil

1 heaped tsp smoked paprika

Chopped tomatoes

Half a bottle of wine (or whatever you can find in the back of the booze cupboard)




Chuck everything in a pan. Cook it. STUFF YER FACE. DRINK THE REST OF THE WINE. HAVE A NAP.


*Disclaimer* Hannah McPake and Llinos Mai will not be held responsible for the consequences of any reader’s attempts to make this pie. Although Hannah maintains you’re all wimps if you make it with less than 45 chillies.

Love, Llinos and Hannah x
