That's why I thought Elizabeth David might fit your bill with her background, Mediterranean and vegetarian cooking and recipes . I don't associate the likes of Shepherds pie as food the upper classes would eat , but it would be classed as nursery food , a comfort food but cheap and easy to make . You could indeed do vegetarian Shepherds Pie with no shepherd ;-) I think Jane Grigson is another option and indeed Delia Smith . Hopefully you will be able to research and come up with some interesting ideas ? Keep us posted and good luck .

That wasn't the impression I got----- at all. You've explained your reason(s) quite well and saved me the bother of talking about what forums are for. Thank you.

I think I would used my tried and true cookbooks, just adjust for no meat. Study up on "umami" and how to incorporate it without using meat. Also study about how to create a complete protein using vegetables, something that is very important.

PF---- now you're talking!--amino acid supplementation (combining essential amino acids that your body doesn't make) to make a complete protein with no meat! I had to write a paper on that in biochemistry a long time ago.

It became more 'popular' when the Hippie culture espoused vegetarianism and some actually knew how and why to still get a healthy diet with no meat.
And I don't mean buying the pills to do it!

BUT----- the poorer Mexicans knew this long long before! A meatless taco, with beans, cheese and corn tortillas gave as complete a protein as a steak did.

More later, for those that are waiting for my Timeless Prose. (ZZzzzzzzz)

They also knew to use nixtamalized corn, which has more available nutrients.

Of course I forgot to add rice to my meal with tacos.

Sorry, I was a bit sharp. Don't let me put you off DC.
