This Quidditch player’s pie is a version of the famous shepherd’s pie enjoyed for numerous meals in the Great Hall, especially before a rough game of Quidditch. This dish was chosen to be a part of pre-game dinner, I’m guessing, because it is a very filling, hearty meal.
In Chamber of Secrets, Harry enjoys this delightful meal before attending his not-so-anticipated detention with Professor Gilderoy Lockhart.
