Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s Pie is the perfect way to use leftover roasted meat of any kind and leftover potatoes of any kind.  A St. Stephen’s Day pie is made using leftover turkey or ham.  A Cumberland pie is a version using breadcrumbs on top instead of potatoes.  The English also make a similar dish with fish known as fish pie.

Macaroni and Cheese Galley Chef Style

Macaroni and cheese Galley Chef style is, by far, the best macaroni and cheese I’ve ever had.  Try this recipe once and you’ll never want a different recipe again.  It’s creamy, tangy and nutty all at the same time with that little bit of buttery crunch on top.  Make it as a side dish or put a tablespoon-full into a bite-size cup for a great little nosh with a cocktail.

Shrimp Pernod with Spinach Cakes

Pernod is an anise-flavoured, or black licorice flavoured liqueur.  This beverage becomes cloudy when diluting over ice because it is  aniseed-based. It contains oils called  terpeness, which are soluble in an aqueous solution that contains 30% ethanol or more by volume. When the solution is diluted to below 30% ethanol, the terpenes become insoluble causing the beverage to become cloudy.
