Gang of cornish miners

Many food critics rave about culinary delights from around the world, but it can be so easy to forget what delicious dishes have been brought to the table by the British. For example, the Cornish pasty is something many of us take for granted, but this tasty fusion of potatoes, swedes, onions and chipped beef remains a popular choice with consumers throughout the United Kingdom, which isn’t bad for a food that dates back as far as 800 years.
As the title would suggest, the Cornish pasty we’ve come to know and love has its roots deeply set in Cornwall, where it was introduced to miners and farm workers during the 17th and 18th century, so it could provide sustenance for workers, especially those working in the mines. In fact, the food became such a staple of a miner’s diet that it wasn’t uncommon to see a series of ovens within the mines that were designed to heat up raw Cornish pasties.
Although Cornish pasties were freshly made back in the early days, modern culture has taken over and now food companies are able to produce mass amounts of pasties within a matter of minutes. That’s not to say that they don’t fit a purpose, but there are many fans of traditional Cornish pasties, and in most cases a supermarket equivalent just won’t cut it.

So order your traditional Cornish pasty today made by Cornish hands
