Cottage Pie – England
click on all images to enlarge them


A bubbling sizzling Cottage Pie is ready to be served. let me add to the age-old British debate, what’s the difference between Cottage Pie and Shepherds Pie? From what I understand, Shepherds Pie is made with minced lamb, whereas Cottage Pie is made with minced beef.

Traditionally, a British housewife would make a Cottage Pie the day after the Sunday roast. Of course the roast was beef with vegetables. So, she would cut up finely all the ingredients, make a little roux or use gravy left overs, mix it all up, and then spread a layer of mashed potatoes over it and let it all brown up in the oven.

I decided to check up a variety of top British chefs, such as Delia Smith and others, pick out all the ingredients they offered (meaning, I actually stuck to the *overall* British recipe), and assembled my own dish. Thus, for example, one of the chefs I consulted, mentioned tomato paste, others tomato ketchup, or a tin of tomatoes others just chopped fresh tomatoes. I decided to use both fresh chopped tomatoes and a tin of chopped ones. However, previously I used freshly chopped tomatoes and tomato purée. What I am saying is, what I am offering here is what I and my dinner guests enjoyed, however it’s just a guideline. Just like, for certain, most British housewives made their own variation the day after the Sunday roast.

I took this mini micro video just before serving. Next time I shall use the camera in the horizontal / landscape way 😉 (if you increase the volume, you’ll actually hear it sizzling)

Since 1988, I’ve had strong connections with Africans and I am happy to say that some dear friendships resulted which have lasted till today.

Needless to say, I was also enjoying their generosity when it came to new and interesting foods. So here is one recipe I made many times at home and has become my own family favourite.

This recipe was graciously given to me by my Ghanaian friend Patricia.
