What’s in a name

Greggs, a bakery in England, sells about 61 million Cornish pasties a year. But it won't sell any this year. It will still sell beef pies, but it can't call them Cornish pasty any more. The European Union awarded the dish protected geographical indication status, which means anything called a Cornish pasty must be prepared in Cornwall. Greggs is located in Plymouth. And a Cornish pasty can only contain beef, potatoes, onions and rutabagas. Greggs' pie also contains peas and carrots. But even some pasty makers based in Cornwall may have to change. European Union rules state that a Cornish pasty must be crimped on the side, while some bakeries crimp them at the top.
