Cornish Pasty Protection

I was in Ashers bakery in Aviemore at the weekend when I noticed a sign that said “Our Cornish Pasties are now called Highland Pasties”.  “Why’s that?” I thought.

Well it seems that the EU has decided that “Cornish Pasty”  is a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI).

So if it’s not made in Cornwall, to a traditional recipe, then it can’t be called a Cornish Pasty.

John has previously blogged about PGI and related issues here.

I will continue to selflessly check what other bakers are now calling their pasties.  My first field trip is planned for lunchtime today.
