Most people who love lamb or beef shepherd’s pie do not know much about its origin and the history behind its creation. Chef J9 feels that knowing the history of any food adds a special beauty and appreciation to it.
The first thing you should know is that shepherd’s pie is originally from Ireland. Yet, it is loved by people from all over the world. It came about from sheer genius and the need to preserve rather than waste food. At first, it was called cottage pie before they separated this meal into two categories. Beef, for cottage pie, and lamb, for shepherd’s pie. Then they were both called shepherd’s pie. These days, people can’t tell which is shepherd’s and which is cottage.
The original pie consists of three layers of mashed potatoes and meat. The upper and bottom layers have mashed potato and the middle layer carries the minced meat. In place of the mashed potato, Chef J9 chooses to prepare a finely spiced special blend of steamed vegetables finely mashed in a food mill. Chef J9 uses as pie crust a finely ground pork rind and cheese crusting.
