When used as a verb, the word shepherd means to guide something (such as sheep); move them in the direction of where you want them . For sheep, that often means from their pencil to a field of grass where they graze. Therefore, the shepherd shepherds the sheep to the field from their pencil.
A pie is composed of pastry formed into a bowl which will contain a staple food product that the baker selects (meat, vegetables, or fruit). With that much done, the product could be called something other than a pie. When the baker adds a pastry cover (top or lid) then bakes her or his invention, he or she has baked pie. The name shepherd’s pie implies that mutton (the meat of sheep) got baked into the dish. While true, if the baker chooses to use mutton, the name shepherd’s pie applies to some edible food shepherded to the pastry bowl.
You know the title for prepared food products that were not all consumed: leftovers. Shepherd’s pie, a freshly-baked presentation of kitchen leftovers, provides a baker with an array of chance to liven up an otherwise B record meal while functionally clearing the refrigerator of older, yet useable food before it spoils. I’ve seen the name”cowboy’s pie.” A pie will eat (taste) the same if the title changes; the pie itself stays the same. Cowboys herd cattle, as shepherds herd sheep. Some fishermen herd fish into a trap, so you may have fisherman’s pie if you wish, and you probably should call it that if you baked leftover fish in your pie.
If from Argentina, you might consult with your pie as gaucho pie, since a gaucho (the Argentinean word for a cowboy) herds cows while on horseback. Speaking of cows, western Americans prefer the title cattle, and they detest the term boy when speaking to themselves and their tradition of herding cows. They like cattlemen better. Cattlemen’s pie works then, doesn’t it? Additionally, it sounds better than cowboy’s pie. Probably, we should let go there, because cattlemen do not usually herd cows, which live in barns, create dairy products, and make small cows (calves).
