Of course everybody should know that Cornish pasties are THE thing to eat here.
Originally designed as the miner's working lunch - the pastry would have a thick crust, enabling it to broken open by grimy hands and would have contained sweet and savoury contents such as meat/potato and apple.

These days the cornish pasties come in all sorts of flavours - I liked the steak and stilton variety - and jumbo sizes!
