THE HOME OF THE CORNISH PASTY

 

14 – 18 JANUARY 2019

MONDAY - FRIDAY

5 Days

£299 £60 SINGLE SUPPLEMENT

 

The pasty has been a documented part of the British diet since the 13th century, at this time being devoured by the rich upper classes and royalty. Join us as we travel to Cornwall where we delve into the making of this famous Cornish delicacy.  During your stay in Cornwall you may possibly treat yourself to a Cream Tea, one of the great debates between Devon and Cornwall which neither can agree on is; cream or jam first? That is the question; perhaps we will find the answer.
