Tasty and controversial: the Cornish Pasty

From Labour Day, 11:45 am on 24 October 2016

Historically, the Cornish pasty was the convenient one-stop lunch box for west country tin miners. The pasty's history goes back thousands of years further: to Ancient Roman times and the Bronze Age. Today you'll find them only occasionally in New Zealand - unless you're in Waikato where Paul Dalton, of Traditional Cornish Foods, makes and sells them at farmers markets across the region.
