- What to eat with homemade pasties?
Bit of an awkward one this as the whole point of the pasty is a meal inside pastry. Maybe there are some cornish who know the score? I'm thinking saladPosted 10 years ago
or maybe salad and onion ringsPosted 10 years agomastiles_fanylionMember

I'm cornish and i'd reccomend a dollop of heinz tomato sauce, screw the salad but follow it with scones and cream instead 😀
To repeat wise words once said to me, "If there's room on your plate for other things, you should'v made the pasty bigger!"
enjoy though, mmmmmmm hot pasty….Posted 10 years ago

I'm not cornish, but I am starving…
I'd have home made potato wedges and beans.
Slice a big baking potato into 8 wedges.
Stick a good dollop of olive oil, pepper, paprika/cayenne/seasoning in a bowl.
Coat wedges. Sprinkle with salt and roast on baking tray for 20-30 minutes, turning once.
Beans – current favourite is Branston bloomin' big ones.Posted 10 years agoanotherdeadheroMember

I had an amazing pastie at the Prince of Wales in Foxfield – came with beans. Super stodgy but really nice.Posted 10 years agoworsSubscriber
what you need to do is put it between a barm/bap/flour cake (edit as you will) then you'll have a pastie barm.Posted 10 years agostumpy01Subscriber

My choice of accompaniments for a Cornish pasty would be a big slog of HP sauce for dipping purposes, or a large pile of Branston, or maybe even Piccalili (sp?) at a push.
Bl**dy local bakery had run out of hot Cornishes yesterday, and I had to revert to a ham sandwich, so am feeling very jealous of your lunch.Posted 10 years ago
don't worry philby its my dinner and you still have time for that.Posted 10 years agokhegsMember
Pasties need no accompaniment, apart from maybe some red/brown sauce (edit to taste/for northernness).
If you need something else you obviously haven't made the pasty big enough.
Now if I could find somewhere that made potatoless pasties down here so I could actually eat them, that'd be ideal 😉Posted 10 years agogavtheoldskaterMember

My wife was Cornish and for her it was Heinz Tomato Sauce and a big mug of tea with sugar (she didn't take sugar normally).
I like to carry on the tradition!Posted 10 years agokhaniMember
