I get great pasties up here from the Cornish Pasty Man, My wife who is Cornish would normally make them, I make my own saffron cake also make my own clotted cream.

So food ways I don't miss one thing here in Oz.

I believe the pasty man will be starting next month sending them by overnight delivery frozen, ready for you to bake. I can tell you he sells 2000 a week here and as good as any in Cornwall.

Cheers

BTW you can get clotted cream from either Vic or Prahran markets.

My wife hails from Millendreath Nr looe. Her sister still lives there and another sister lives in Torpoint. my wife also served in the Fleet air arm at Helston for 6 yrs and her father was Barrack Master at HMS Drake. We were Married in Liskeard.

 

Anyone recognise the location please? We did the full coastal walk but can't remember where this shot was taken? St Austell?

I have been back to Cornwall 8 times and no way would I swap the life there for Australia, some of the scenery maybe but not the life.
