This excites me because at least here in Oregon, the weather begins to change from long hot days to shorter and cooler ones. That means it's time to bring on the "one pot" dinners. That's a term I use collectively for soups, stews, chili, casseroles, and basically anything where most of the meal is done in one pot, kettle, or baking dish. One of my favorite meals of this type is shepherd's pie. A little Irish pub in Newport Oregon, Nana's Irish Pub, makes one of my all-time favorite versions of this dish. If you ever find yourself in the Nye Beach neighborhood of Newport, do yourself a favor and get into Nana's. You get bonus points if it's a stormy day (it makes the food and atmosphere all the better)! I rounded up a few shepherd's pie recipes for you to take a look at, my favorite to make being the Gordon Ramsey version linked below. It's relatively easy, and is packed full of rich flavors. Gordon Ramsey's Shepherd's Pie Mario Batali takes shepherd's pie up a level Alton Brown's Shepherd's Pie Shepherd's pie recipe from Allrecipes.com I also had an opportunity to have a short conversation with my brother Randy about a cooking club that he and his wife and another couple started a few years back. He mentioned that it might be a good topic for the show, and I agreed! We talk about why cooking clubs are a great way to grow your skills in the kitchen and how to get one started. Randy also shared an amazing coleslaw recipe! Randy's Blue Cheese Coleslaw Recipe! Connect with The Kitchen Counter Podcast!
