British food specialities: The Cornish Pasty

The Cornish pasty, much like the pork pie, is one of those British food specialities that's been tainted by mass production. If you want to try one please, please, please do not buy one of the vacuum-packed nasties sold in petrol stations! Try the real thing and you are in for a treat. The Cornish Pasty Association states that “a genuine Cornish pasty has a distinctive 'D' shape and is crimped on one side, never on top. The texture of the filling for the pasty is chunky, made up of uncooked minced or roughly cut chunks of beef (not less than 12.5%), swede or turnip, potato and onion and a light peppery seasoning”. So, there you have it. Accept no imitations, head to Cornwall and track down the real thing. Check out this video and get drooling!:
