pasty onWanting to increase our product range of traditional British food on the go, we give you *drum roll* 


pronounced PASS-TEE.

pasty2A hand held pie thought to have originated in the county of Cornwall, England by tin miners’ wives as a hot meal.  Special crimping not only seals the pie, but provides a convenient handle for those dirty hands at meal time.  As the miners migrated around the world, pasties in various forms can be found in Australia, Mexico and Up State Michigan.

    Your “traditional cornish” pasty was made from ground meat and full of what tasted like italian herbs. Completely different to a british recipe, must be a Michigan style pie.

    I had the Cornish Pasty at Farmers’ Market, EY Center, Ottawa. It was simply the best meat pie I ever had. Filled with big, nice chunks of beef, perfectly cooked – so tender!, and topped with brown sauce and a side of chili. So comforting !
