In preparation for the main meal of the day, the top of the hot hodge-podge of leftovers was seasoned with whatever was at hand, and then sealed with a crust of pastry.
Signature recipes were passed down from one generation to the next, becoming the stuff of family legends and tall tales, historic storytelling at the supper table.
