Why? Shropshire Blue cheese comes from Scotland. Panama hats come from Ecuador.

Because there is protected status on the term, whereas there isn't (I assume) on your two examples. I'm not saying it's 'right' I'm just saying it's a fact.

This is a nonsense article. To be called a Cornish Pasty, a pasty has to be made in Cornwall. It's totally irrelevant who may or may not have invented the pasty. It was probably the Romans in any case (as well as giving us roads, aqueducts, law and order...).

I believe pasties come from tin mining. The women would make something the men could easily carry in their pocket and eat down the mine. Blame the tin for the Romans even coming.

A teacher at school said they would eat them holding the raised crust to avoid getting mud, etc, in then throw that bit away. Seems logical.

Couldn't they have used the tin they mined to make knives and forks? Presumably cutlery was introduced by outsiders to the county.

 


Living down here does have some advantages. At least you can see them cry.

I believe that's correct.

I've also read that the dutiful Cornish wife would sometimes bake one end of the pasty as the savoury first course and the other end as the sweet 'pudding' course. A nice idea, but it sounds unlikely.

That's called a Bedfordshire Clanger. Never had one but they sound nice.

Boy is that lad going to be disappointed over the coming years.

WE needs to talk to him and tell him that everything evolves and that he should embrace change.....All that localism in such a global world...tut tut.

He obviously loves Cornwall and wants to keep it.

Not everyone is like that though.....it's funny how a certain type of person moves to a certain conservative type of place and then argues for the politics of change that will wreck it.

But there you go.

A Cornish Pasty has a thick crust due to the dangerous levels of arsenic found in copper and tin ore. The crust was to hold the pasty and was thrown away by the miners so as to avoid arsenic from being ingested. Unfortunately, many tin miners still perished from poisoning and other dangers associated with the industry. The arsenic when extracted commercially in 'labyrinths' above the mine
from the ore was often shipped to the States to kill Boll Weevil in cotton crops.

I think itís true. There was a piece of pastry through the middle separating the savoury mince from the sugar or fruit side. Not sure what letters let the miner know which is which or it could have been left sweet right savoury as simple as that.

You've made it sound much more feasible.

From my recollection of what I read many moons ago, it was some kind of mark or extra bit of pastry to identify the 'meat' side. The problem with a left/right protocol would be if the pasty was perfectly uniform and symmetrical, how would the miner - in the gloom of underground - know which way round he was holding it?

You can be sure of a very warm welcome here. That's a typical Daily Mail piece of attempted troublemaking. The remarks are obviously addressed to those who determine the marketing strategy. They very specifically refer to the very unusual circumstances of the way that some second homeowners behaved during the lockdowns, by escaping the cities to come and use their properties here when they were supposed not to travel. There were also some who rented on holiday parks, but that was stopped. This caused significant problems for the health service here.

In normal circumstances, everyone will be greeted with warmth.
