“Cottage Pie with Dauphinois Potato Topping” from “Mary Berry Cooks”

Anna: This hasn’t worked. It may be because I didn’t par boil the potatoes for long enough, but I’m disappointed.

Peter: It’s not really a cottage pie without a mashed potato top.

Anna: If it had a mashed potato top it would be great, as the mince is really nice. But the cream has seeped into it which making it look grey, which isn’t very appetising. And some of the potatoes aren’t cooked properly.

Peter: I don’t think the embellishments have made any improvement to what should be a simple dish.

Anna: No. I’m glad that we didn’t have anyone round to share this with as it looks a mess on the plate. Disappointing.
