1. In a large mixing bowl, sift flour and salt together. 2. Cut fat into flour, using a round-bladed knife until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Continue rubbing in flour, but using fingertips. Mixture must have no lumps and should resemble fine breadcrumbs. 3. Make a well in the centre, add water gradually to make up a firm, pliable dough. 4. Turn onto a floured board, knead pastry lightly until smooth. 5. Cover pastry with plastic wrap, and chill for at least an hour before using.
