Second Runner-Up in the Open Savoury Professional category, the only non-British and only one of two non-Cornish winners, at the 2012 World Pasty Championships in Cornwall, Bridgeport Pasty has finally opened its brick-and-mortar shop. "As laid down by the European Union Protected Geographical Indication (PGI), . . . only pasty makers based in Cornwall who make pasties in a traditional manner and follow a traditional recipe are able to label their products as Cornish pasties." So, by definition, we will never be able to get Cornish pasties here, but we sure can get these original portable meals made the traditional way, from two Chicagoans, no less!

Someone on Yelp referred to a pasty as a large empanada. Sorry, wrong in so many ways: history, filling, recipe, appearance, regulation, language, country, continent, etc., etc., etc.! And you wonder why I don't care for Yelp recommendations.
