I love Cornish pasties. My Nanny has Cornish ancestors and these are a tradition passed down through her family. I don't make them that often because they're a bit fiddley to prepare and put together but they're so good when they're done. Traditionally they would be made with lard in the pastry but I can't get that so I just use butter. When I eat these I always remember my Great Uncle Jack (Nanny's late brother). I share a birthday with him, as well as my Mum, and on at least two occasions we celebrated our birthdays together in Le Bons Bay eating Cornish Pasties.
