Here is my best explanation:

'most those in 24 down' is the definition.

I can't judge whether this definition defines the answer.

'traditional fare in accommodation' is the subsidiary indication.

'traditional fare' becomes 'epi' (I can't justify this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).

'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'accommodation' becomes 'cottage' (I have seen 'simple accommodation' mean 'cottage' so perhaps 'accommodation' could also mean 'cottage').

'epi' inserted inside 'cottage' is 'cottagepie'.

'for' is the link.
