In this latest episode, the Unexpected duo, Professor James Daybell and Dr Sam Willis carefully roll out the pastry of the past, fill it with meat of memory and tuck in to devour the unexpected history of PASTIES! Which is all about Cornish diaspora (via Michigan, Australia and elsewhere around the globe where this tasty foodstuff has travelled), myth busting, and 3D scanning and printing of one of the last pasties that a Plymouth woman ever made! It's also all about Tudor recipes passed down the generations, and a material reading of a radical pasty recipe! Yes, you heard it here - a radical pasty recipe! Who knew!
