Here is a great alternative to ordinary Christmas food – a wonderful Shepherds Pie recipe made by my b/f, Jon. When he works the kitchen he makes even the great Gordon Ramsay seem pale in comparison :)
You’ll have to look far and wide for a tastier pie, which is a MUST on cold Winter days. It can be made in three different variations for all tastes: Shepherds Pie, Cottage Pie och Vegetarian Pie. The recipe is given here in English as Jon is from New Zealand. Enjoy!
(Serves 4 – 6)
Cottage pie was first seen in 1791. It was made with leftover roasted meats in a pie dish lined with potato and potato crust on top. Potato being first introduced around this time as an edible crop affordable by the poor.
The dish “Shepherd’s pie” wasn’t heard of until the late 1800’s. The term has been used synonymously with “cottage pie”, regardless of whether the principal ingredient was beef or mutton. More recently, the term “Shepherd’s pie” has been used when the meat is lamb, which makes sense as shepherds farm sheep, and not cattle.
Did you try the recipe? How did it taste?
BON APPETITE :)
and LOVE from Jon and Maria
