Fancy a Pasty? — 8 Comments

  1. Did you know that pasties were a complete meal for the Cornish tin miners? Meat stew in one end and then sweetened apple in the other – one meal in a pastry covering so the miners could eat the food by hand and not worry about plates etc!

  2. Wow, when you put them all together like that it is so obvious how similar cooking is across cultures. I am biased but Jamaican patties are my favourite.

  3. Perogies (Ukranian & Polish) are a boiled pastry filled with potatoes, cheese and sometimes a bit of sausage or ham.
    French Canadians have Tourtière which is a really nice baked meat pie.
