Dear Jacqueline: This is just the dish to eat right now, while we are still enjoying the last of that cool spring weather. Note that the recipe can be made ahead of time up until Step 10, then finished just before dinner so it's served piping hot.
Root vegetable shepherd's pie
FOR THE RECORD:
Shepherd's pie: In Wednesday's Food section, the Culinary SOS root vegetable shepherd's pie recipe left out two ingredients. There was 1 tablespoon of rosemary included in the ingredient list that was not used; it should be added in Step 9. There was one-quarter cup cream reserved after braising the celery root in Step 5; that also should be added in Step 9. The complete corrected recipe is available online at latimes.com/food. —
Total time: 1 1/2 hours, plus baking time for the squash
