Corrie is very educational

Whoever said that Coronation Street was not educational. I always knew that Cottage Pie and Shepherds pie were different (one used lamb and one used beef). But I didn't realize that the top should be different too. Apparently, according to Roy Cropper "Roys Rolls" mum Sylvia, Cottage Pie is made with beef and the topping is sliced potatoes overlapping each other to mimic the tiled roof of a cottage. Whereas Shepherds Pie is made with Lamb and the topping is mashed potato to look like a sheep. Well, there you you know!
