Presentation Transcript

The first stage: Make a quantity of shortcrust pastry with 225g plain flour, 115g fat (mixture of white fat and margarine) pinch of salt, 4 x 15ml spoons cold water.


2. Rub the fat into the flour using your fingertips until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs.


4. Stir with a round ended knife until the mixture sticks together. Add more cold water if necessary, but don’t make the mixture too sticky.


5. Press the mixture together with one hand. At this stage if you have time, it is a good idea to let the pastry ‘rest’ before you roll it out. Wrap in cling film and leave in the fridge.


Ingredients for Cornish Pasty: 1 x 225g quantity of shortcrust pastry, 225g cubes steak, 2 or 3 potatoes, 1 onion, piece of swede, salt and pepper.


1. Peel the swede. You can use turnip instead, but traditionally the Cornish use swede.


3. Peel an onion. Make a bridge with your hand and cut the onion in half. Put the flat sides down on the board.


4. Hold the onion firmly with your hand like a claw. Slice across without cutting through the root.


9. Put the vegetables in a bowl with the cubed steak and season well with salt and pepper. Mix well.


11. Roll out the pastry using a backwards and forwards movement. Don’t roll over the edge of the pastry.


12. Turn the pastry round (not over) frequently so that it doesn’t stick to the table. Use the rolling pin to support the pastry when you do this.


13. When the pastry is rolled into a large square, cut out 4 circles. You can use a pan lid for this, approximately 20cm in diameter.


19. Bake in a pre-heated oven, gas mark 6/200°C for about 25 - 30 minutes until golden brown, then reduce the temperature to gas mark 4/180°C for a further 15 minutes to make sure the meat is cooked through.


To make Leek and Cheddar cheese pasties:

1. Cut the root end and dark green leaves from a leek.


3. Add some of the cheese and leek to a circle of pastry. You can add other flavourings too – here I’ve used some pesto. Brush the edge with water.
