    Though of course it wasn't a 'proper' Cornish pasty due to the ingredients...we are quite picky about our pasties here in Cornwall

    There is a pasty shop in Elko, Nevada named John Bull that I highly recommend. It's without question they are all good, but I highly recommend the Green Chili one.

    Love me a good pasty, there was a great place where I used to live in Phoenix, but I haven't found one in ATL just yet.

    There are 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    My preferred pasty maker is the unfortunately named Choak's of Falmouth (Cornwall).

    They do a 'party pasty' which is about two feet long!

    Interesting! At least the Yankee winner is wearing a Barbour jacket and head gear appropriate for stalking. (Brit for hunting- animals, not people)

    Do you know if they baked on site, or could bring their pasties from wherever?

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    I have trouble getting good pasties in the US, so I make my own.

    I don't know for sure John but I would wager all pasties were made on the day at the venue.

    The Eden Project is well worth visiting in itself.

    My great grandparents came from near Jay in Redruth and relocated to the UP of Michigan. My mom carried on the tradition and made pastys while I was growing up. I miss them...

    I have never had a pasty but they sure look good. Heck, even the trophies look good enough to eat.

    What I guessed, but you never know.

    And The Eden Project is indeed worth a detour. My son and I were there five years ago.

    Lasttango, Redruth still has a couple of pasty shops, Rowes being my preferred whenever I visited the town.

    "I have never had a pasty but they sure look good"

    You owe it to yourself to try one. A single meal perfectly packaged in a pastry case.

    Regards,

    Jay.

    So, I am guessing by reading that a pasty is like a calizone or shepherds pie?

    I wouldn't send anyone to Elko even if the pasties were the best in the world...

    Never had the real thing Jay and wouldn't like the ingredients in the winner's version. There are actually essentially large-scale commercial versions of the concept on store shelves throughout the US, Jay, "Hot Pockets" and "Lean Pockets" they're called. Favor the latter myself since it's "leaner." No doubt, as almost always is the case, home-made or bakery-made would be a heck of a lot better.

    Pasties are fantastic. We make up big batches of them and freeze them. As delicious as they are easy.

    You can't beat a proper Cornish pastie.

    lasttango, my late wife and I enjoyed pasties in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, if I remember correctly at the monument at White Fish Point to those lost in the sinking of Edmund Fitzgerald. They are excellent picnic food, hearty, and will stay warm for quite a while to get to the picnic destination. In one way, I wish they were more widely available, but maybe when regional foods stay regional, they maintain their character better. Boy, they were good. Wish I had one now.
