Oh dear.....its all gonna kick off.....damn those Ginsters
Please don't mention 'Ginster' in the same planet as 'Cornish Pasties'; they may technically meat the EU definition, but I've often had to take stuff out of them that I have great difficulty in identifying as Terrestrial organic material.
CF thread title....the Ginster Heresy is everywhere and must be resisted by all right-thinking persons wherever they may find it ....
Mrs Muller should just advertise them as Oggies. A Ginsters' may be a euro-Cornish Pasty but it can never be a real Oggy.
When we were building the Blackwater Bypass we used to get a couple of dozen from a place in Scorrier, God it was a full Sunday lunch in pastry, ruddy marvelous. Mind you the fresh Lobster in the "Prince of Wales" was pretty damn good too
Isn't there a chain of pasty shops called Traditional Cornish Pasties? Which are cooked on the premises, where does that leave them?
Personally I find they promise much, but deliver little. One eighth meat, Swedes, and unidentified pig food vegetables.
Now a fresh made meat pie with mash, liquor, gravy and chili vinegar!
Excognito - it begs the obvious question. Why repeat the experience? If it happened to me once, I wouldn't touch that same product with a barge pole.
Mind you, it I am on a long motorway journey and need a quick scoff, Ginsters does the job. I totally agree though there is no comparison between a Ginsters mass produced and the real deal to be found down in the south west. After reading the article posted by Goatman, I will be tempted to hunt down these real pasties when I am next down that way in early April.
For the love of the blessed Saint Piran, this is not a surprise surely? As soon as Euro-standards come in the door, common sense and decent standards **** off out of the windows. Ooops sorry, euro-amenity-apertures.
Make a pasty five inches wide and nine ells long, weighing sixty four drachms and tell the euro-fascists to take a running **** at a five bar gate, using an approved run up of five chains, two rods and a furlong!
ahhh wotesaid an all.....bad joss to all they furriners across the Channel
( nine ells would be a bit of a mouthful though)
Not sure if empanadas is specifically Argie though....they serve them onboard ships of the Chilean Navy every Thursday
Ahem...Mus Muller does mail order - check it out now LINKY THINGY
Rosa's cafe in Stanley used to do smashing Empanadas, but not as nice as a Scorrier pasty, no gravy
The West Cornwall Pasty Co. make some good pastys as well. I believe that they used to be based in Porthleven. The funny thing is that they do not have a place selling their pastys in Kernow
That's the badger, will they have to change their name to The West Cornwall 'Style' Pasty Co?
Hmmm denby Dale pie, that trumps a pasty.
You'll have to be a little more precise than that. Exactly how long should the run-up be? Is there a standard, approved running gait? You'll need to know the applicable ISO standards by which one should fcuk. And as for five-bar gate? ... well, bar separation? width? wood/metal? corrosion standards? configuration control? And don't even get me started on health and safety!
Or, perhaps, Kernovian or Cornovian Pasties.
Separate names with a comma.
