Shepherdess Pie

Shepherdess Pie

Isn’t this the loveliest name for your dinner? I’ve been making variations of this since I first turned vegetarian (terrifyingly, twenty years ago) and I was trying to replace a Sunday family favourite – shepherd’s pie. I have no idea when the vegetarian (vegan, in […]
