Jamie Oliver's Beef and Guinness Pie


 
It's not exactly freezing but it the time of year when I start thinking about meals that, for lack of a better word are 'manly'.  I would happily make this recipe a Steak and Kidney Pie although that would quickly mean that most of it ended up un-eaten.  But this  wonderfully robust pie is something I wrote about in a very early entry on this blog.  Well over 3500 people have visited this recipe.  The very lucky few have tasted this savory pie, a rich melange of meat and mushrooms and cheese left to be uncovered when the puff pastry topping is lifted.  And it's from a Chef I admire as much for  his caring as I do for his cooking.

A visit to April Bloomfield’s Spotted Pig and a recipe for the great British delicacy Bangers and Mash



         The weather on America’s East Coast has been nothing short of bizaare this whole winter.   When I boarded the plane to come home from St. Barth, the temperature there was 81 degrees.  When I arrived in Newark the temperature was 75 degrees.  We could have saved a small fortune by opening the pool early out at the beach and staying put.  Except that this week there have been freezing temperatures to our north.  In any event, I think there’s a short window of opportunity to put some comfort on the table and today’s dish is a perfect example of just that. It's Bangers and Mash, true British comfort food and my is it good!
