When I worked at Wyeth Pharmaceutical, their cafeteria made 'cottage pie' and it was horrible. The head cook was from the Caribbean. When she put it together, she dumped the carrots, peas and corn in frozen, mashed instant potatoes on top and placed the whole thing in the oven to heat up. When served, the veggies were still in their raw state. You could tell the potatoes were instant. Very little gravy. I had it once and couldn't eat it.

I was surprised because the majority of employees were medical personnel and used to eating in fine upper scale establishments.

I don't go by Wiki I am afraid I go by years of English family tradition . Recipes of course evolve but when that takes you to different ingredients then its no longer a Shepherds Pie .

Wouldn't be the first time Wikipedia was wrong. I was looking up dual flush toilets and they claim they were invented by an Australian in 1980. I used dual flush toilets in Denmark in the '50s.

Some Australian must have wanted to claim it as their own
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

I still have to right up the recipe but this is one I made recently. I did use lamb.

I give up, I can not get the image to work.

The way my roommate in Quebec made it was to always use canned creamed corn. I personally have never made it--just ate it. The homemade tomato ketchup/chow-chow was superb with it.
