"The 86 million pasties that are produced contribute £37 million directly to the Cornish economy,
and the 40 Cornish Pasty Association members turn over £150 million a year."
House of Commons Hansard 18 April 2012, Column 427

Dear Visitor - Having done as much as I could to discover the origins, history and other pasty facts and stories, I have to confess to having lost impetus on this project. It started as a rainy day bit of fun with the story of the pasty tree and morphed into something quite academic in parts. The web site was last touched in March 2016 and is now 'sleeping'. As it has had more than half a million 'hits', I am leaving it as it is for a while.
