A beautiful Ainsley's pastyIt’s lunch time! And as such it’s time for me to enjoy a hot, tasty, flat Cornish pasty, brought to me by those beautiful (er, not really*) people at Ainsley’s who make pies, pasties, sandwiches and cakes. The smell is good, the packaging almost translucent with greasy goodness, so let’s dive in and taste the pasty goodness.

Mmmm! It’s all good, baby. Not to suggest that their Cornish meat filling includes baby, though for all I know it might. I have no real idea what goes into it and I don’t want to know. It could be haggis without the stomach for all I know and care. The spices are right, the heat is nice, the gravy – delectable. The only thing that occasionally lets it down is a “slip” of gristle. I say “slip” because that’s kind of what your teeth do when they try to chew it. Not pleasant.

Still, overall you’ve got to stand tall Ainsley’s – you guys know how to stuff crap into a pastry half-moon and cook it. Yum!
