  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly grease a 23cm pie dish.
  2. Place potatoes into a pot; cover with salted water, and bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover; simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain; mash with 2 tablespoons of the butter and the garlic. Season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add mince, herbes de Provence, and nutmeg; cook and stir until beef is lightly brown and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Spread the beef evenly in the prepared pie dish. Cover evenly with the peas; spread the mashed potatoes over the peas. Dot with the remaining butter.
  4. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until heated through and bubbly, about 20 minutes.
