I used to be able to buy Cornish Meat Pasties in Grass Valley CA (in the US) and they were delicious! Evidently Grass Valley had had a large Cornish population and this tradition hung on in a bakery there.

I know they aren't meat pies---- but similar.

Here's a recipe for them but I don't know how authentic they are.

I wish I had some now!

I love this thread. Fascinating subject. I had never heard of these, only the pasties. My first husband was from the Lakes District in Cockermouth. He would often talk of the foods he had as a child.

Mad Cow, after looking at the molds, are the big ones family size? Or are these pies only made as individual ones?

The commercial pies come in sizes from "dinky" - small enough for a (generous) mouthful - up to the large ones (10-12 inch diameter) on deli counters sold by the wedge. The little tins/pans I mentioned are basically cake tins and I've used various sizes of loose-bottomed cake pans for family-sized pies. Not sure about the wooden moulds as I haven't seen any "in the flesh".

The Cornish pasty is now protected by EU legislation:-

The world is falling about our ears but the European Union has it's priorities.

Thank you MC for the pictures. The Pirate had me save the email so he can send it to his site. His father told him lots of stories of his childhood in Cockermouth.
