  • There’s no need to be too fancy with a cottage pie as good as this. Just some peas or green beans on the side are a perfect accompaniment

How We Make It At Our Kitchen

  • It all starts with great ingredients. We braise prime beef mince for 90 minutes until tender.
  • Then we sauté onion, celery and carrots, and add beef stock, butter and flour to make the gravy. Then in goes a little redcurrant jelly to balance the flavours.
  • We blast freeze the mince base (so the top doesn’t sink into it when it’s heated at home) before adding the mash. It’s special mash, of course, with egg yolks, butter and seasoning. Then we finish it off with a topping of Italian hard cheese, mustard seeds, horseradish and breadcrumbs.
