From Cornwall to Mexico
When Cornwall’s tin mines fell into decline, many of the miners headed to the silver mines in Real del Monte, Hidalgo, Mexico. They brought with them their tools and expertise but also the Cornish pasty.
“The pasty was popular with miners because it made a supremely practical packed lunch. The golden pastry was tough as a miner’s hands and prevented the precious filling from spilling out. The “crimp”, the folded edge that resembles a thick braid of hair, was designed so it could be held by dirty hands then thrown away after the main part of the pasty had been eaten. . . . It’s the filling that sets the Mexican paste apart from the Cornish pasty. A traditional Cornish filling is made from beef skirt, onion, turnip and diced potatoes. Mexican favourites include pineapple, tinga (shredded meat marinated with tomatoes and chipotle chillies) and mole (a green or red chilli and chocolate sauce).”
