פַּשְׁטִידַת הָרוֹעֶה
 
This one’s for my sister, who loves this dish.
 
In honor of the cold weather felt in many parts of the world this week, here’s an entry about a nice hot food item.
 
Shepherd’s pie, originating in what is today the United Kingdom, translates to פַּשְׁטִידַת הָרוֹעֶה listen and repeat in Hebrew.
 
פאי רועים
פשטידת הרועה for vegetarians
 
 
The word פַּשְׁטִידָה listen and repeat, pie, first appeared in Hebrew literature of the middle ages. It’s borrowed from the Italian word pasticcio, loosely meaning mess or hodgpodge
רוֹעֶה listen and repeat is a male shepherd, while a רוֹעָה listen and repeat is a female.
 
The ת- (t) ending on the first word in פשטידת הרועה indicates that the two words are linked in an of (סמיכות listen and repeatrelationship. The phrase means, literally, the pie of the shepherd.
