Quidditch Player’s Pie

Quidditch Player's Pie

Quidditch Player's Pie is a version of the shepherd's pie enjoyed many times in the Great Hall, especially before a rough game of Quidditch. This dish was chosen to be a part of a pre-game dinner. That is probably because it is a very filling, hearty meal.
