Hey, a pasty made in Debun is better than no pasty at all. So there.

Have we got a dribbling emotithingie?

Ivor Dewdneys still have shops in Plymouth and Newton Abbot. You're right, they are hotter than a hot thing. ISTR they do about 4 different sizes, small, medium, large, and proper!

You used to be able to buy frozen ones from them to cook at home, but 't'weren't the same.

It is possible to buy pasties locally to me that taste fine, Warrens at Tragos and Exeter, but they are made in Cornwall and cooked up here.

I have purchased frozen raw pasties direct from Barnecutts in Bodmin and brought home to be cooked later.

There maybe still a Dewdneys in Exeter, but they're a pale imitation of the real thing.

Don't start me on Ginsters though, made in Cornwall it is true, but I'd rather eat the packaging.

There is a Cornish pasty shop in Berlin (or is it Munich) and they have the raw product shipped by air overnight.

Protected product status means if it ain't made there it can't be called Cornish.

I didn't know Warrens sold pasties that were Cornish made. I'll have to try 'um.

So much food, so little time......

Unlike Devonshire's sorry creamy offering it is well known how good Cornish cream is and as such is to be celebrated and not hidden away under the jam. It is truly the cream of the crop, and of course it is always the cream that rises to the top.

And our Cornish pasties are celebrated the world over and have EU protective status.

Nobody could ever make a pasty as good as my Nan, not even my mum. My cousin Judy makes a good one, and I'm looking forward to popping down to see here later in the year as I know she will want to cook.

Many, many years ago I had a part time job working in Ma Jenkins pasty factory in Exeter. So I knew the ins and outs of the whole process, making the pastry, preparing the vegetables, peeling and dicing the spuds, getting the meat prepped (sadly not prime beef) then mixing everything in readiness for balling onto the pastry circles. Then finally bringing together and crimping the edge. Both styles, rolled crimp and boat crimp. Hundreds and hundreds every day.

Sue will try her best to make a pasty, but being a Devon maid she hasn't got the genetic makeup to do them right, but they are passable. Perhaps I'll have to show her how one day, I know there's some skirt in a freezer put back for pasties.

When I lived in Cornwall (first marriage, not a Cornish lass) my mother and sister came to stay for a holiday.

My wife made pasties one day and when she brought them to the table my Mum's jaw dropped.

The one on my plate was so huge it overhung the dinner plate at both ends. We did laugh.

First wife was a good cook.

You sometimes see on the local news of some place in Cornwall getting an award for the best pasty. I should make a special trip down to check 'em out.

Phillips near st ives do lovely pasties they get loads of awards and ship them all over the
world. Always busy and queues out the door all the time, just a shame the car park is a bit small.
