Potato-covered pies: shepherd's, cottage, fisherman's, etc.

Recommended Posts

Thus showcasing the weakness of a wiki -- in some cases, an obscure source (onegreenplanet.org?) carries as much weight as one of recognized authority (Mrs. Beeton!)


"Shepherd" is not gendered in the first place, so calling someone a "shepherdess" is like calling someone a "teacheress." That's not just sexist, it's awkward (and kind of dumb sounding).


I suggest "gardener's pie," or "farmer's pie," if it's necessary to have a unique name for it. I'm not convinced it is.

I was thinking something more like this.



My mother used to make a sort of faux stargazy pie. It was really just a fish pie with mashed potato topping and a few sardines heads sticking up through the topping. True stargazy pies are fish and potato, but have a pastry topping. The potatoes are in the filling with the fish.
