A steaming hot pasty might just be what you’re craving for the colder season. These traditional Cornish steak pasties used to be a grab-and-go lunch for miners in Cornwall. Learning from the best, Aran is taught how to bake these packed pasties from none other than his grandma using a traditional Cornish pasty recipe.

  • 40g lard or margarine
