Lamb = shepherds pie
Beef = cottage pie
vegetables = not pie at all but a sorry excuse for food that shouldn't even be fed to those skinny starving donkeys in the middle East, you know, with the bent backs and long toenails, they would refuse it.

Actually
Lamb/Mashed Potato = Shepard's Pie (Mash = Fluffy like a sheep)

Beef/Sliced Potato = Cottage Pie (Slices like roof tiles on a cottage).

Sadly i think I learnt that from Coronation Street.

It's still beef for cottage and lamb for shepherd though.
I wouldn't argue that changing the nature of the potato on top makes no difference.

That said, I would say lamb "pie" with sliced potato on is scouse.

It is, yes.
All we are missing now then, is the proper name for the beef/mash combo.

Unless that's hot pot.

No, that's cottage pie!
hot pot has sliced potato on top

I'm not sure.
Some actress.

I just googled 'Coronation Street Cast' to find out where I heard the Cottage Pie thing from.

She may have been in Tenko.

Why would Coronation Street be the place to look for food based facts?!

It wouldn't,
I've just let a joke get out of hand.

For the record, I have no strong opinions on the correct type of potato for either a Cottage or Shepard's pie.

So which type do you advocate for a fish pie?

(, Mon 13 Feb 2012, 14:42, Reply)
Well, clearly that has to be very small boiled potatoes to look like fish eggs.
This one I feel very strongly about.
