Know your genuine Cornish Pasties and don't settle for less.
The ingredients for a traditional Cornish Pasty must meet strict guidelines in order to be called ‘Cornish’. If it is not called a ‘Cornish Pasty’ then it is not made to the traditional recipe nor is it made in Cornwall.
WHAT MAKES IT ‘CORNISH’?:
For a pasty to be called ‘Cornish’ it must be of the classic ‘D’ shape, contain specific ingredients in minimum quantities, is seasoned with specific seasonings and the pastry must meet specific criteria. Make sure your pasties are truly Cornish and settle only for the best.

The wives of Tin Miners are often credited for the invention of the pasty, however the actual history of the pasty dates back to the 13th century. The Tin Miners wives, however, were responsible for the ritual of adding their husbands initials to the pasty crust so they could be identified.
As the pasty became more popular the fillings were interchangeable, adapted to the personal taste of the person that would eat it. In fact, there were even pasties that contained meat and vegetables in one side and fruit in the other so as to form a complete two-course meal.
