Cornish pies


Can such a small pie be hiding a whole…meal within it? Of course, it can! This was the goal of the Cornish miners who, in the 17th – 18th century, filled this particular pie with all sorts of ingredients (meat, vegetables, potatoes), as it was the ideal snack for work given its small, convenient shape. It is a traditional dish which, in the past few years, has been recognized by the European Union as a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) product.

  • Place a pot over medium heat and add the olive oil. As soon as it gets hot, sauté the ground beef for a few minutes until it is slightly browned.
  • Add the onion and sauté it along with the ground beef for 10 minutes (you do not want it to turn golden). Add the garlic and sauté for one more minute.
  • Firstly, add the potato and the carrot, mix well, and then add the flour.
  • After you sauté it for 1 minute, add the wine. When half of it is evaporated, add the diluted bouillon cube and the thyme.
  • Lower the heat and season with salt and pepper. Slightly cover the pot with the lid and simmer for half an hour until the liquids are evaporated.
  • Add the parsley and the peas, transfer the filling into a bowl, and set it aside to cool well.
  • Preheat the oven to 180° C (350° F) set to fan.
  • Cut the dough into 12 disks of 14 cm diameter each, and divide the cold filling in the center of each disk.
  • Close the disks by creating semicircles and spread the pies with the diluted yolk.
  • Place them into a baking pan lined with parchment paper and bake them for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and serve.
