1
Bring a pot of water to the boil and then drop in the potatoes. Boil for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Drain and then add the butter. Mash the potatoes until all lumps are removed and set aside
  • 500g of potato
  • 120g of butter
2
Place the lamb in a large pot or casserole dish with a little oil and cook until nicely browned. Drain to remove any excess fat and then return to the pot
  • 500g of lamb mince
  • oil
3
Place the pot over a medium heat and add the white wine. Heat until reduced by half then add the vegetables and cook until they are softened but retain their crunch
  • 125ml of white wine
  • 500g of carrots
  • 250g of onion
  • 125g of celery

Add the stock and reduce until the meat has absorbed all the liquid. Add more stock if the pie mix is a little dry. Season with salt, pepper and thyme and stir in the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce
  • 125ml of lamb stock
  • 5g of thyme
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp of ketchup

Mix in 2 egg yolks to the mash - this will give the mash topping a glossy finish - and then spoon into a piping bag. Pipe the mash on top of the pie filling until completely covered

Place the pot or dish in an oven set to 200°C/gas mark 6 and cook for around 30 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling. Serve immediately
