We have no potatoes today! Instead, puff pastry replaces everyone’s favorite starchy tuber in this rendition of delicious and savory Haitian Cottage Pie.
After contemplating the influences of the Irish, Russians, and Queen Elizabeth I., I decided to introduce Cottage Pie to the flavors of Haitian Pâté. Consequently, Haitian Cottage Pie is a cultural, gastronomic combination of meat, vegetables, and spices. Marinating meat, at least overnight, is essential in Haitian cuisine. Happily, with ground meat, that is an unnecessary step. Still, the beef together with aromatic herbs adds a layer of complexity, as well as flavor to cookery rooted in Native Taino-Caribbean, West African, French, and Anglo-American cultures.
