Cornish Pastie

Where can i get a proper Cornish Pastie round these parts? Many times i've been down to Truro and never saw anywhere that looked promising...

GB - yes I had a Grannies Pasty in Looe and possibly Polperro.

It was a few years ago but I think they were pretty good.

Now that you mention it, I'm positive there's still a Grannie's in Looe, not sure about Polperro though.

My grannies pasties are far better than anything you can buy in the shop, but they're not the grannies pasties! For the truely authentic experience you'd have to have a home made pasty, so make friends with a local and get yourself invited for crouse!

I agree about Anne's Pasties, always excellent, but they sell out very quickly.

No doubt the best are home made but as a visitor you probably won't be in a position to sample one. A good friend Brenda Trenouth of Trevone Farm makes wondrous pasties and many years ago I once ate 2 at one sitting which left her gobsmacked. If you are in Truro try the ones at the bakery in Truro Pannier Market, Lemon Quay, not bad and only £1.50. I usually have one each Wednesday when I am working in my market business. Sometimes just a touch peppery for my taste but have sampled a lot worse.

The best pasties are from the Oggie Oggie shops! Rowes pasties vary enormously from being salty, peppery or chewy meat.

When I was in Par, we found a good pastie shop run by a bloke called Benjamin Leddie. He does a good trade over the net. His website is "Bleddieansumpasties". They were scrumptious. Lean meat, local veg and not overseasoned.

Try Anne's Pasties at the Lizard and, also, at St Just there's a buther's shop/deli that sells great pasties too. The name of the shop escapes me but it's located in the middle of the square opposite a fish and chip shop called 'Jeremy's Fish Bar'. Hope this helps. There used to be a fantastic pasty shop in Porthleven too but that closed a couple of summers ago unfortunately!!
