The Cornish Pasty

Ode to a Pasty

Ted Gundry

The Scots have got their haggis,
Made from offal which seems messy,
Each year 'tis served on Burns night,
At a function rather dressy.

But.........In Cornwall down the ages,
The Pasty's reigned supreme,
With taties, turnip, onion,
And chuck steak shoved in between.

To Cornish folk 'tis tasty,
So relax don't eat in haste,
Just tuck in and enjoy it,
And let nothing go to waste.


Our grateful thanks to Ted for kindly sending this poem, written for a pasty supper in Tasmania! It is great to know that our traditions are alive and well around the world .....
