I’ve made things from this book before, and although it seems a little unassuming they’ve usually turned out ok. I was making dinner for my neighbours and needed something fairly wholesome but filling. This recipe seemed appropriate. I used turkey instead of chicken.
Yes, I still had leftover turkey yesterday. I hadn’t cooked anything from Potluck Cookery (Beverly Pepper, Faber and Faber, 1955) for a while – but this American cousin of shepherd’s pie seemed the perfect thing. The author cunningly avoids interpretation issues by not specifying this as a casserole, bake, pie or hot dish.
