This restaurant in Boston was life-changing.
I don't say that often. And it may be for reasons other than you're imagining.
But the Cornish Pasty Co. has changed my life.
You see, I wrote a book on pepperoni rolls, but during my entire research, I really never stumbled upon pasties. (PAST-TEES)
The history of the pasty sounds similar, no?
I ordered the "Pilgrim Pasty," which had house-roasted chicken, sweet potato, grilled onion and homemade stuffing, served with red wine gravy and cranberry sauce. I love a good Thanksgiving mash-up.
But what I love more is this distant relative to the pepperoni roll. There are tons of foods created with a pastry coating and filling side, but this one had the same reasons behind that. And now I'm hooked.
