Some thoughts on Cornish Pasties

Traverse City’s Pasty Shop serves the tastiest pasties “this side of Cornwall.”

So where’s Cornwall and what is a pasty?

If you take a look at a map of England, you’ll see that a peninsula juts out from the westernmost part of the country, extending into the Celtic Sea and the English Channel (which divides England from France).

Cornwall is considered a “Celtic nation,” and has a unique cultural heritage. There is even a separate Cornish language.

The pasty is the “national dish” of Cornwall. Indeed, it has “Protected Geographical Indication” status, which means in essence that the name “Cornish pasty” is trademarked in the UK.
