CPA launches pasty book


The Cornish Pasty Association (CPA) has launched a pasty book to continue celebrating achieving protected status for its Cornish Pasty.

The Little Book of the Pasty, which was commissioned to renowned Cornwall-based author, Emma Mansfield, features facts and the history of Cornwall’s most iconic food.

Alan Adler, chairman of the CPA, said: “After receiving PGI status, the CPA wanted to leave a legacy for the Cornish Pasty. The Little Book of the Pasty is an absorbing account of the history of our region’s most famous food product and it truly demonstrates the Cornish passion for pasties.”

The book is available through independent bookstores and tourist attractions in Cornwall, on Amazon and in selected Waterstones. RRP £5.99.
