Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
In a pan place some olive oil and add diced pork sausages, onion, carrot, salt, pepper and garlic and brown gently.
Add sherry, chopped parsley, thyme, paprika, cumin and coriander and simmer it for 5 minutes.
Then add milk, stock cube, the 100ml double cream, sugar and Worcestershire sauce, bring to boil and then simmer for 10 minutes until sauce is starting to reduce. Put the sausage mixture in a rectangle shaped oven dish and leave to cool.
For the mash peel and boil the potatoes in water with 1 teaspoon salt until soft, 20 to 30 minutes. Drain and add pepper, butter and the 50ml cream or milk and mash until very soft with no lumps.
Then add the mashed potatoes to the top of the sausage mixture. Ensure all the mixture is covered with potato.
Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly, about 40 minutes.
