A chow report...went to Cornish Pasty with a group of friends last night. And while I wasn't completely hungry, the smell of the place upon entrance completely changed my mind. There MUST be some sort of motion-sensor that releases scientifically-researched scents that elicit a hunger response whenever someone walks through the door. There can be no other explanation.
So the "Holiday Special" pasty is the standard dough, stuffed with turkey meat and sweet potatoes...not mashed though. The primarily dark meat was tender with no skin attached, and the sweet potatoes were cubed. A sweet (too sweet for me) fresh cranberry sauce was served on the side. A classic "holiday" combination...and it was good to try...but perhaps not just one day past Thanksgiving, when there's another 15lbs of turkey in the fridge. It did not seem to be as salty as some of the bird meat pasty's, so I had to add a little bit of salt to each bite.
Next time...I'm trying the carne adovada. Haven't had a one bad pasty yet.
