MINER-INSPIRED WORLD CUISINE
Flaky Pasty Pies with Flavors from around the world
is a singular, folded pastry case with a crimped lid and a savoury filling, typically of seasoned meat and vegetables.
Cornish pasty pies started with the miners in Cornwall England. It had the braided edge crust so they could hold the crust, enjoy their pie and than toss the crust into the mine. This way the dirt and harmful mining toxins from their hands never touched their meal.
