This is a Cornish Pasty. Well, not quite… . Yes, the ‘pasty’ format was inspired by where we used to live (Cornwall, in the UK)… . But: . The pastry is sourdough spelt, infused with layer upon layer of lard paste (made with left-over-from-rendering lard cracklings) inspired the Slovakian recipe I got from @almost bananas. . And the filling is slow-cooked mutton grass-fed on the Tuscan hillside (thank you @valledelsasso). . Prepared by one big English person with the help of one little English person (see my story for a shot of the little chef at work) in their Italian apartment kitchen. . Who needs boundaries when the eating is this good? Check my story if you want to see the process and a fatty-flaky-pastry moment.
