Cornish Classics for Scilly Summers

Cornwall feels very different from the rest of England and its people are fiercely independent – and the same can be said of the Isles of Scilly, just 28 miles off Cornwall’s Westernmost tip – home to our very own Karma St. Martin’s. The Cornish are also very proud of some of their iconic, homegrown foodstuffs. Chief among these is surely the legendary Cornish pasty – a thick shortcrust pastry pocket filled with a rich blend of meats and vegetables, with a distinctive ridge. The latter once served a specific purpose – so that miners could easily clutch their lunch without getting dust all over it!

Coming in a close second is Cornish ice cream whose incredible creaminess is thanks in no small part to the Cornwall cows and a fondness for deliciously rich clotted cream. Both date back as far as the 13th century, so they’ve had a long time to get them just right! You’ll find both easily available during your stay at Karma St Martin’s in the Isles of Scilly.

  1. A cornish pasty was meat,potatoes and turip. And at one end was a savoury treat. The end pieces were left for the pixies. ( probably eaten by the rats)
