Cottage Pie for Pi Day

Cottage Pie for Pi Day

March 14 is sometimes written 3.14, which most mathematically-minded people will know as π or Pi – the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Pi Day was created in recognition of this important number. Besides just talking about Pi, food geeks such as myself also like to bake pies.

At the same time, St. Patrick’s day is coming up on the 17th and I was thinking about what kind of Irish recipe I’d like to share for the occasion. We haven’t done shepherd’s pie yet on this blog but we do like to make it every now and then. So I figured, why not kill two birds with one (Blarney) stone and make a shepherd’s pie for Pi Day?

We made this amazing grilled pork belly dish that our guests completely devoured.

Recently, we celebrated a friend’s birthday at our favorite Western-style pork restaurant here in Kuching, My Restaurant. The most popular dish that we had that night was a platter of grilled, 3-layer pork belly that was a-ma-zing. We asked Walter, the chef-owner of My Restaurant, what was in it.

“Oh, caraway seed, salt, soy sauce, and some other spices which I am not going to tell you.”

Well, being the foodies that we are, we thought we could pull off a grilled 3-layer pork belly dish on our own.

Eggplant and Red Pepper Terrine

Eggplant and Red Pepper Terrine Today has been a pretty crazy day.  We have been cooking up a storm and I was joking with Nate that we should have just put everything we made into the mould and called it a “conical day”. Believe it or not, we made dinner rolls, barbequed pull pork, coleslaw, this eggplant and red pepper terrine with a tomato sauce AND banana cream pie! Yes, we had a party today with over 10 people and now we’re rushing to get this post out.
