How To Make Cornish Pasties

How To Make Cornish: The Official Recipe

Yes, there is an official Cornish pasty recipe and it is included here along with a US English translation. By European law, this is the only pasty that can be called a Cornish Pasty and even then only if it is made in Cornwall.

So, unless you happen to live in Cornwall, you will just have to call it something else. If you insist on calling it a Cornish Pastry and one day two burly tin miners with strange accents show up on your doorstep, all I can say is, “You were warned!”

What’s a Cornish Pasty, you may ask? Well, the official one is much like a meat pie, but you can hold it in your hand and the pastry will hold together. It’s much the same for the variations I have provided in this cookbook, although I didn’t stop at just meat pies, there’s also fruit pies, vegetarian pies and many other versions. The list of recipe names below will give you a good idea.

My mother’s pasty recipe was different, so I included that as the Unofficial Cornish Pasty Appetizers. But there is so much more you can do, and I have done, with the pasty idea that I thought you might like to try some of the variations I’ve come up with over the years. Therefore, in this book, you’ll find the following recipes:
