Proper pasties

As the name sug­gests Proper Pasties are gen­uine hand­made Cor­nish pasties, made by An­drew Driscall, who bought them to Tassie from his Corn­wall home. Try the Orig­i­nal Tra­di­tional, with potato, onion, swede and skirt beef in ei­ther a small $6.50 or large $8.50 or go for the Mo­roc­can roasted veg­etable pastie at $7.50. Avail­able for pur­chase at Huon Val­ley week­end mar­kets, and Kingston Beach hand­made mar­ket.

Bush Bak­ery

For more than 20 years this Les­lie Vale in­sti­tu­tion has stuck to a sim­ple recipe for their pasties — meat, veg­eta­bles and sea­son­ing all wrapped in their house­made puff pas­try. And for good rea­son, as any­one who has had a Bush Bak­ery pastie (which cost $13 for four) will at­test, if you’re onto a good thing then you should stick to it.

682 Les­lie Rd, Les­lie Vale

Daci & Daci

The Daci & Daci pastie is tra­di­tional Yu­gosla­vian treat. Filled with spinach, leek, onion and feta and wrapped in de­lec­ta­ble house­made but­ter puff pas­try, take this one away for $10 or en­joy in-house with a salad and rel­ish for just $14. Ei­ther way they make a scrump­tious lunch or quick din­ner op­tion.

9-11 Mur­ray St, Ho­bart


The Jack­man & McRoss pastie is a sim­ple take on the clas­sic. With a spiced chick­pea and vegie fill­ing all wrapped up in de­lec­ta­ble house­made but­ter puff pas­try, th­ese make the per­fect lunchtime treat. Jack­man & McRoss can be found in Bat­tery Point, New Town and Ho­bart.

Blue Edge Bak­ery

This pop­u­lar lit­tle East Coast eatery keeps their pasties sim­ple with a tra­di­tional meat and veg fill­ing wrapped in house­made puff pas­try and fin­ished with the tra­di­tional Cor­nish han­dle. Th­ese pasties (which are $5.50) are so pop­u­lar that they even get their own re­views on Trip Ad­vi­sor! 55 Burgess St, Bicheno
