When I was growing up in Vancouver my mom and I rented our home from a Brit. He'd have us over for dinner now and again , and would make the best shepards pie. Maybe it's nostalgia, but I've never really been able to reproduce it.
Then this crazy post
got going about Kleins and people started bashing on each others cuisine and the topic of Shepard's pie came up and I just had to start this thread.
Would people please share their favorite recipes here?
