Initialled Cornish pasties
I came home the other day to find that Mr Graphic Foodie had gone all creative and made these - initialled Cornish pasties! If I wasn't having a big fat Italian wedding I would freaking serve these up for the reception!
I would divulge the recipe but the pastry is my mother's secret recipe and she hasn't given it to me yet. I am not joking when I say it is the best pastry on the planet. Michelin bloody starred it is. Beautifully crumbly, savory and rich, we use it for a multitude of things from chicken pies to sweet tarts. I have never, ever, ever, never tasted better. Maybe she keeps it secret from me as the recipe would reveal an artery clogging cocktail of ingredients? Who knows, but for now I just get a slab of prepared pastry from her on request, despite my pleading doe eyes. Mean isn't she?
