Cornish Pasty 2

The Cornish Pasty is commonly associated with Cornwall, United Kingdom. It differs from a pie as it is made by placing the filling on a flat pastry shape, usually a circle, and folding it to wrap the filling, crimping the edge to form a seal. The result is a raised semicircular package. The traditional Cornish pasty is filled with diced beef, sliced potato and onion, and baked.

    I thought, that looks like a Cornish pasty! We have a package of miniature ones in the fridge.

    From the supermarket they are OK, but you get really, really good, warm ones in Cornwall. We often have them when we are at the beach. Hubby goes and fetches a couple for lunch.

    Where do you get Cornish pasties in Lafayette?

    Err, that's not a Cornish pasty. Technically. The definition for the purposes of a protected designation of origin says (among other things like a minimum beef content and being made in Cornwall, of course) that it has to be crimped to the side. Cue outrage from the dozens of people who can remember their granny from Gweek crimping them over the top, of course, because no homemade food has EVER been uniform. FWIW, I find they hold together in the hand better when crimped to the side. And in the hand is of course how you eat them. Knives and forks are for foreigners.
