Fabulous Fish Pie

Fabulous Fish Pie


For Christmas I treated myself to an Emma Bridgewater Fish Pie dish.  So recently for dinner we had Fish Pie followed by Apple and Blackberry Crumble.   The menu was inspired by watching Downton Abbey, and in particular Mrs Hughes attempts to please her new husband.  This food is more nursery or comfort in nature, not necessarily what would be served upstairs but both dishes are very traditional  British dishes.  The fish is cooked in a classic cheese sauce, made by the traditional ‘roux’ method, which is not as scary as it sounds.  Once mastered you would be amazed at the number of dishes you can whip up.  It is also traditional to add a little pinch of English mustard to bring out the flavor of the cheese.  I always keep powdered mustard in my spice drawer, as it is also the emulsifier in oil and vinegar salad dressings.
