Pate Chinoises aka Shepherd’s Pie

Oui Chef. Season 2. Episode 1

This was a meal that was on regular rotation in our home growing up however Shepherd’s Pie is a relatively new dish in the Acadian repertoire and like many “borrowed” dishes, they have made it their own. Originally a British dish made with lamb however at home it was always ground beef, my mom didn’t use the usual carrots and peas either, we ate it with creamed style corn. This for me is real comfort food.
