Remarks

For a more sophisticated recipe, you can:
  • Make more than 4 layers of mashed potato-meat-mashed potato-cheese, for example mashed potato-meat-mashed potato-cheese-meat-mashed potato-cheese. You should, of course, finish with a layer of mashed potato sprinkled with cheese.
  • Add some cream to the mashed potatoes
  • Add some chopped ham or bacon to the meat


[Translator's note: this is the French answer to the English cottage or shepherd's pie].

  • Hi JHI just printed out one of your recipes, the first time I have done this in about 2 months, and the page is way too big for my printer - so I have lost about 2cm of text on the left and half the photo on the right. Hopeless! Have you changed your settings on the web site? I already have "shrink to fit page width' on my own settings, so any thoughts or advice? I like to be able to print out your recipes...Many thanks. Lori

  • Hi Lori : Yes, I have made a version more "actual fashion" of the site, using CSS. I'm sheepish to have not verify printing results, and I promise to see that as soon as possible.

    On the same kind of problems, I'm actually working on an e-cookbook made from site recipes, it will be in pdf and, I hope, resolve all printing problems. Coming soon...
