Cornish pasties, like fish and chips, roast beef and Yorkshire and fried breakfasts is an icon of much-maligned British cuisine.

Cornish Pasties.

Pasties are baked pastries filled with usually meat and vegetables and the legend are they were invented as meals for tin miners in Cornwall to take down the mines for lunch, though references to pasties in Cornwall predate the tin mining.

Cornish Pasties.

A traditional Cornish pasty will have a filling of minced meat, onion, potato, and swede with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Pasties in Devon have a different style of crimping on the edge. Indeed, there is debate about which county first produced the pasty.
