The nights are beginning to draw in, and it’s time to start thinking about hunkering down for the colder months. For me that means drawing the curtains, lighting a crackling fire and cooking up some comfort food for the family. And nothing whispers comfort food more than a delicious home cooked shepherds pie recipe. I road tested this one with a little help from my fab local food provisions store Ruby & Kind.
