Cornish Pasties: Protected by Law

Excellent news for those of us who appreciate a good Cornish Pasty. The European Commission has given Protected Geographical Indication status to the Cornish Pastie as requested by the Cornish Pasty Association. From this point onwards, in order to be called a Cornish Pastie, a number of criteria must be met, including:

Made in Cornwall (obviously)
D shaped and crimped on one side
Made of uncooked minced or roughly cut beef, sweed, potato and onion
Slow cooked from raw

Full details are available at the Cornish Pasty Association web-site.
