Curried Lamb Pie
TNT has partnered with James Beard award winning Chef Jamie Bissonnette to create decadent meals inspired by Will, a new TV show that depicts the wild, rowdy story of young William Shakespeare. This period drama exposes all of Shakespeare’s recklessness, lustful temptations and tortured brilliance. Bissonnette’s dish plays homage to “funeral baked meats” served at Hamlet’s mother’s wedding. Traditionally, these “coffin meats” were sealed with pastry or potatoes to lock in flavor and aid in preservation. In Hamlet, the dish is used to emphasize the close proximity of his mother’s wedding to his father’s funeral. Here, we’re using the sweet potatoes as the “coffin” for a modern, flavorful twist on classic coffin meats.
