The origin of the pasty, and myths and legends

  1. 1. THE ORIGIN OF THE PASTY MYTHS, LEGENDS AND FOOD IN CORNWALL. BYLEE (HDS)
  2. 2. THE CORNISH PIXIE Pixie’s (known in Cornwall) are mythical creatures of folklore, considered to be particularly concentrated in the areas around Devon and Cornwall, suggesting some Celtic origin for the belief and name. They are usually depicted with pointed ears, and often wearing a green outfit and pointed hat. Sometimes their eyes are described as being pointed upwards at the temple ends. These, however, are Victorian Era conventions and not part of the older mythology. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pixie ) Pixie’s were known to eat the tin miners crust when they were finished.
  3. 3. KING ARTHUR <ul><li>In the far Southwest of England, most of the historical locations associated with King Arthur are to be found in North Cornwall. A good starting place for those who wish to discover more about the Arthurian mythos is Tintagel, the gateway to King Arthur in Cornwall. </li></ul><ul><li>Stories and theories abound as to the location of the legendary site of Camelot, where King Arthur held court with his knights of the round table. Is it Glastonbury or Cadbury Castle, in Somerset. Tintagel or nearby Camelford in Cornwall? </li></ul><ul><li>Arthur was born the son of Uther Pendragon and Igraine. He was taken away by Merlin while still a baby and raised by a foster family. When Uther died without a clear successor, Arthur proved his lineage by pulling the sword from the stone. </li></ul>King Arthur pulling the sword from the stone. Merlin. Tintagel Cornwall.
  4. 4. THE CORNISH PASTY <ul><li>A pasty is a filled pastry case, associated in particular with Cornwall in Great Britain. It is made by placing the uncooked filling on a flat pastry circle, and folding it to wrap the filling, crimping the edge at the side or top to form a seal. The result is a raised semi-circular package. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pasty ) </li></ul><ul><li>You can get many flavours including: </li></ul><ul><li>Steak </li></ul><ul><li>Chicken </li></ul><ul><li>Turkey </li></ul><ul><li>And vegetarian </li></ul><ul><li>And many more </li></ul><ul><li>They all have carrots, swede, onions and potatoes. </li></ul>Find the Recipe here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/classic_cornish_pasty_67037
  5. 5. THE CREAM TEA <ul><li>The cream tea originating in Cornwall and Devon. It is a cup of tea, a scone with a jam and cream filling. The scone is made of wheat, barley or oatmeal, with baking powder as a leavening agent. </li></ul><ul><li>There is a big debate whether to put the cream on first or the jam. </li></ul><ul><li>Cornwall put the jam on first then the cream. </li></ul><ul><li>Devon put the cream on then the jam. </li></ul><ul><li>The cream tea is a lovely snack , to have with a </li></ul><ul><li>cup of tea in Cornwall. </li></ul>
