Well, Jeremy’s always posting pictures of very chefie food on the Stir the Pots blog. So here’s some peasant food for him:
A humble shepherd’s pie. But it was made with the remains of yesterdays Pierna de Carnero Adobada – lamb stuffed with raisins and almonds in a sauce with ancho and mulato chiles. I threw in a chipotle and some long, thin chiles the name of which had rubbed off the packet. It was pretty good. Plus, I have made wheat tortillas for thirty years, but I got out the tortilla press and ran up some corn tortillas for the first time. I was pretty pleased with myself.
