Hogsmeade

Hogsmeade Village, or simply called Hogsmeade, is the only all-wizarding village in Britain. It was founded by Hengist of Woodcroft. Since before 1714, Hogwarts third years and above have been permitted weekend trips into the village.

Mainly, students frequent the High Street in the village which contains the named specialty shops and pubs such as Zonko’s Joke Shop and Honeydukes. Otherwise, they wander on to observe the infamous Shrieking Shack.

Hogsmeade is a picturesque little village of cottages and shops, with enchanted candles hanging in the trees during the holidays. It is also near the location of the train station used by the Hogwarts Express.

  • Hairdressing salon

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Bring a pot of water to the boil and then drop in the potatoes. Boil for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Drain and then add the butter. Mash the potatoes until all lumps are removed and set aside.

Step 2

Place the lamb in a large pot or casserole dish with a little oil and cook until nicely browned. Drain to remove any excess fat and then return to the pot. Place the pot over a medium heat and add the white wine. Heat until reduced by half then add the vegetables and cook until they are softened but retain their crunch.

Step 3 

Add the stock and reduce until the meat has absorbed all the liquid. Add more stock if the pie mix is a little dry. Season with salt, pepper and thyme and stir in the ketchup and Worcester sauce.

Step 4

Mix in 2 egg yolks to the mash – this will give the mash topping a glossy finish – and then spoon into a piping bag. Pipe the mash on top of the pie filling until completely covered. Place the pot or dish in an oven set to 200°C/gas mark 6 and cook for around 30 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling. Serve immediately.
