Fish pie

Name, Surname:
Gillian Deakin; 42 British

The recipe I have chosen is a Traditional Fish Pie recipe which was taught to me through my Irish Heritage, with potatoes and fish being the main ingredients. I feel passionate about using the potato with all of its origin from Ireland in which the spoils of crops caused starvation and the break up of families within Ireland. The fish was easily sourced throughout the many rivers within Ireland and also the Irish Sea. A happy family meal in which we all shared and enjoyed.
I have also fused this recipe to my own taste.
