Description

Cornish Pasty

It is here, the Proper Cornish pasty (tiddy oggy). Now then, this here Cornish pasty is not what you might expect to find this far away from the old country. As I said, it is a real Cornish pasty. When we decided to make Cornish pasties, we knew that we would be putting ourselves out there to the bonafide Cornish pasty arm chair critics. If we were going to make Cornish pasties, they would have to be authentic ones.

Over the years I have been told and educated by some lovey Cornish expats about the origins of the humble Cornish pasty. Did you know that the chant OGGY OGGY OGGY, OI OI OI came from the Cornish tin mines? Well from a very reliable source came these facts! Apparently when the oggies were hot, the miner whose turn it was to heat the oggies would shout down the shaft OGGY OGGY OGGY and the miner that wanted his OGGY would shout (you got it) OI OI OI. They were about 12inches long and were filled with 2/3 savory and 1/3 sweet. This would have been whatever was left over from last night’s tea (no fridges in those days!) served as an all-round meal.

Today a contemporary real/proper Cornish pasty is filled with skirt steak, swede, potato, onion and of course that pepper taste in the background. JUST LIKE OUR CORNISH PASTIES. We also crimp them in a homemade butter and lard short crust pastry. Now that is the real deal hey.
