Poor Man’s Pie




This 1913 recipe was contributed by Marianne Farrow who had come to Aberystwyth in 1901 with her husband George, a Company Sergeant Major in the Cardiganshire Artillery. By 1911 they had six children ranging in age from 17 to 6 years of age.

As her husband’s income was probably only about 6 shillings a week, Mrs. Farrow might be accustomed to producing economical tasty recipes like this.
