Cornish pasty name given European protected status

The term "Cornish pasty" has been given protected status by the European Commission.

It means that only pasties made in Cornwall from a traditional recipe can now be called "Cornish pasties", the Cornish Pasty Association (CPA) said.

The Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status means "genuine" Cornish pasties will now be stamped with a special logo.


(There's plenty of folklore about it- any songs?? : )

I've never been to Cornwall, but I've enjoyed "Cornish pasties" all my life. They are a regional delicacy in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, brought there by miners from Cornwall. Cornish miners also introduced pasties to the mining town of Grass Valley, California. I was born in Michigan, and now live about a half-hour drive from Grass Valley.
One of the few glimpses of heaven I've had in my lifetime happened about three years ago, sitting on a hillside overlooking the Mackinac Bridge in Northern Michigan, eating a pasty and drinking a bottle of beer. Heaven was interrupted when a park ranger came up to chat. I had to hide my beer, because I wasn't sure it was legal to drink there. I don't know if the ranger noticed my beer, but we had a pleasant chat.
I can't guarantee this thread will stay in the music section, Noreen. Better come up with a pasty song quick.
Now, tell me this: what's the plural of "pasty"? And what's the singular of the items that strippers wear to keep themselves from getting arrested in some localities? An old Polish priest I knew, referred to them as "three postage stamps, judiciously placed."

A friend calls them "Stegosaurus Pasties" in reference to their shape. Protected species status has, I fear, come too late for that breed.

When I heard the news I wondered about Cyril's song, which is about pasties in Plymouth (not Cornwall but Devon, so falling foul of the new rule) but the Oggie Man is, of course, "no more" and so is safe from interference.

I, too, grew up eating pasties -- I was born in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (populated by the descendants of Cornish miners) of Wisconsin stock. I left Wisconsin when I was 20, gravitated through Massachusetts and Maine, and landed in New Hampshire circa 1980, taking a gustatory enjoyment of pasties with me. When Tom and I had our potluck wedding in 1982, we provided the pasties (which my mother and I made) and the beer (dark) at our "reception".

Dinner well in hand!

Well said Gurney. You are not allowed to make fake Roquefort or Stilton so why does poor old Cheddar get stiffed so much.

If a company in Cheddar was to make a cheese and sell it as Wisconsin cheese then they'd be in trouble. Turn about should be fair play.

fake Roquefort or Stilton
Stilton cheese isn't even made in Stilton.
It got its name because it was sold there when the old A1 (Great North Road) went though the village.

Didn't the 70s Folk/Rock band "Jack The Lad" play an instrumental medley entitled "A Corny Pastiche"?

If the new legislation stops some of the "rock-hard chunks of pastry with a scrape of something resembling petfood inside" that I've eaten in the past being called Cornish Pasties, it'll be very welcome.

And long overdue.

Stilton is protected so when a farm near to where I used to live decided to make an unpasteurised version in their place in North Nottinghamshire, they came across the naming problem.

They found that in Medieval days, Stilton was called Stichleton, so that's what they call their cheese, and bloody fine cheese it is....

Anyway, Cornish pasties are made in my village. By me.   Little ones for when we have parties. if the Eu want to have a pop, first they need to be invited to one of our parties.

Sorted.

What's the problem? If they're made in Cornwall then you can call them Cornish pasties otherwise it's just pasties. It's not as if a pastie is going to be confused with any other pie product.

I first encountered the pasty when I visited Mineral Point, Wisconsin, where Cornish miners settled:

http://mineralpoint.com/history/index.html

I found a recipe, but my reaction was 'What a lot of work just to put a filling on a wheat-based food!' Let's see, you have to:

slow-cook a tough cut of beef and cut it up
clean and boil turnips, cut them up
saute onions
make a cream sauce, mix with the above to make a filling
mix pie crust
assemble all the above and seal against leakage
bake
cool till safe to handle

A housewife can make her husband a sandwich for far less effort.

If anybody knows a way to make pasty (that was the plural in Mineral Point) in fewer steps, let me know.

The idea of the pasty was that the fairly loose fillings wouldn't fall out as they would from a sandwich and the ridge where the pasty was sealed was where you held it with your grubby hands (this was lunch for miners and ploughboys before greaseproof paper or clingfilm were invented). The ridge could be discarded once the rest was eaten.

Ceaseless vigilance is required against the advance of the designer or DFL pasty, with fillings such as smoked trout & sour cream, goat's cheese & pesto, Brie & cranberry, snails & garlic butter, and green tea & aloe vera.
