When I was first married, I made my husband a really traditional, British Shepherd’s pie, and I remember his response to it like it was yesterday. He simply said: “Thanks. But please, don’t ever make that again!” I mean, here I am SO excited to share a part of my culture with him in making the food that I grew up eating- and was feeling so chuffed with myself at making my first ever Shepherd’s pie, and he threw it in my face. I don’t remember what I said or did that day, but I’m pretty sure it involved me wiping it off to reveal my laser beam eyes!!
