Cut the eels into pieces about 5 cm (2 in) long and put them in the bottom of a pie dish with the chopped onion and parsley.

Season with pepper, salt and nutmeg. Add a quarter of the stock to the pie dish.

Roll out the pastry, make a good thick lid with a small hole in it and glaze with beaten egg.
