Cornish Pasty Festival

Cornish Pasty Festival

The town of Redruth is hosting a three day Pasty festival starting later today, all day tomorrow and finishing with a walk and church service on Sunday.. looks like it is going to be good weather so I will be going to the sale of the Miner's wife this afternoon.

This was based on a true tale, he sold his wife to fund going abroad for work when mining in Cornwall was declining; many miners went to Australia, Canada and even Argentina and have strong links with their homeland.

The humble pasty no longer is just a lunchtime snap but a heritage piece and rightly so has protected status.. to be a Cornish pasty, it has to be made in Cornwall.
