Loving this Piper arc! Would be glad to see her again in later comics!
Stupid question: what’s being served with the peas? It’s too irregular to be a pie or a steak, plus there’s the little grey thing on top…
Based on what they are talking about and the look of it I’m guessing it’s similar to a shepherd’s pie. Meat, gravey, and veggies with potato on top. Baked in an oven. The thing on top is most likely a decorative leaf, maybe a bay leaf?
I could be wrong though.
I could be wrong since I don’t like mince pies anyway, but I’m pretty sure they’re only easy to get around Christmas time here? If this was a mistake I recommend changing mince pie to pork pie 🙂
Yeah, the modern British meaning of mince pie is a sweet mix of dried fruit, spices, apple and suet (sometimes with brandy), baked in a pastry crust so the suet melts and makes the rest go all gooey and yum.
Pork Pie definitely a very top pub food! But not what’s shown?
Piper is just musing about food in general and the difference between US and British cuisine. What is served in Panel 3 is definitely pub food.
Yeah, I didn’t think she was referring to what they were eating. I just assumed that was a steak. Not sure what the thing on top is though?
Just a basil leaf garnish 🙂
It actually looks more like a Shepherd’s or Cottage pie to me, given the irregular edges (minced meat in a thick dark savoury gravy with finely chopped vegetables, topped with a layer of mashed potatoes then finished in the oven for a crispy top, sometimes also with cheese on top although that is somewhat ‘gilding the lily’)…
Not gonna lie, this whole arc makes me desperately want to return to England. I’ve only been there once when I was a teen, and I didn’t really experiment much with the local cuisine. Now all this talk about food makes me hungry!
Sounds very nice, but I thought she likes Piper- why take her to the USA?
