I am sure you all know by know that I am a big Dorie Greenspan fan.  So, when I read about French Friday’s with Dorie, a virtual cooking class, I immediately signed up.  The idea here is that every member of this “cooking class” creates a dish from Dorie’s new book; around my french table.

I am thrilled to be a part of this as I was “shut out” of “Tuesday’s with Dorie” Each week I would see submissions on tastespotting and completely felt left out.  Boo Hoo!  I am now a proud memeber of “FFwD”. I have yet one more thing to add to my “to do” list, however cooking doesn’t feel so much like a chore, I actually enjoy it.  I am excited to step a little bit outside of my comfort zone and try a new way of doing things.

When I saw what was on this weeks, menu, I was ecstatic for two reasons.  One, I had earmarked this page, and two, “shepherd’s pie” was on this weeks meal plan.  I was able to check a dinner off my weekly menu and I was able to create dorie’s version of this very classic dish!

Hachis Parmentier is simply just a fancy name for shepherd’s pie.  I made it according to dorie’s recipe, however my original plan, was to make one with ground turkey.  I am happy I made it Dorie’s way.
