The Cornish are fiercely proud of their traditional foods. One of the joys a visitor to the county might experience is a proper Cornish ice cream, clotted cream on a scone, or a traditional pasty (the ‘a’ is pronounced as in ‘has’, not ‘par-sty’).

Cornish people never refer to their pasties as being Cornish. The pasty was historically known as a ‘tiddy oggy’, ‘tiddy’ being the local word for ‘proper’ and ‘oggy’ being a west-country name for ‘pasty’. Proper is a very common word in the local vernacular, and means ‘satisfactory’; it is used a lot in phrases like ‘proper job’, ‘proper answer’ or ‘proper pasty’.
