A completely new concept; Eat My Pasty hit the streets of PCB in 2015, offering traditional English Cornish Pasties, Fish and Chips and a number of other dishes not normally found on Florida’s Emerald Coast:
Twice-cooked, hand cut chips (fries). Succulent, flaky North Atlantic Cod or Haddock, and an amazing array of pasty flavors from the traditional Cornish to the more adventurous Thai Green Chicken.
Owners Jeff and Stacey Temperley are always working hard to perfect a new recipe, and bring something innovative to the tastebuds of their customers.
Eat My Pasty had humble beginnings, starting out in local farmers markets and events. We were stunned when we sold out all of our stock at the first market we ever did. We brought more with us the next time… only to sell out completely again! It was then we knew we were onto something.
The feedback we received from the farmers markets and events was very positive and encouraging. After a few months we started getting e-mails from customers who had tried our pasties whilst on vacation in the area, asking if we could ship to them! We loved the idea, but it took a while to figure out the details of making that possible.
Now we’re delighted to be able to ship anywhere in the USA using FedEx Express services and highly insulated packaging. Now you can have the best in traditional British fare delivered directly to your door!
We still attend those local farmers markets and love the atmosphere and people we meet there – we also now offer catering for local events and parties, so give us a call today and see how we can help you impress your guests at your next big event!
EAT MY PASTY IS OWNED AND OPERATED BY JEFF AND STACEY TEMPERLEY
Now based in Panama City Beach Florida, Jeff and Stacey are natives of Essex, England and moved to Florida in 2012 to build a better life for their young family. They missed the traditional tastes from home, and so began their plan for “Eat My Pasty” early on. A short while later the concept was in place, and the work began in earnest!
It’s simple: We want to make, quite simply, the best pasty you’ve ever tasted! We combine the best flavours from traditional English recipes with a modern twist. Top quality, locally-sourced ingredients are hand-prepared and cooked to perfection ready for you to enjoy in your own home; or with us!
We believe that even the best can be improved – we’re always searching for higher quality locally-grown ingredients, more delicious recipes to add to our range, and quicker ways to ship these delicious treats to you. We promise to keep improving both our products and service and hope you’ll be along for the ride as get better and better!
The Cornish Pasty has been made in England since the 12th century, the tin and copper miners of Cornwall England helped make them popular.
The Cornish Pasty became a staple of their diet in the 18th century. The miners who worked long hours needed a nutritious and filling meal to last them through the day and the pasty fit the bill perfectly. Pasties can stay warm for hours, allowing the miners to enjoy a hot meal underground without having to return to the surface.
With the decline of the Cornish mining industry many miners immigrated to other countries including USA, Australia, South America and South Africa. This resulted in the Cornish pasty becoming popular in many far-flung corners of the globe. However, until now pasties have not been available anywhere in the Florida panhandle. We hope you enjoy embracing this tradition and making it a part of Panama City Beach.
- Cornish Pasties are an 800 year old fast food.
- A miner’s wife would carve her husband’s initials in his Cornish Pasty – so he knew which was his.
- In the Cornish language a Cornish Pasty is an ‘Oggy’.
- When the Cornish Pasties were ready the wives would shout down the mineshaft: “Oggy, oggy, oggy!” and the men would shout back: “Oi, oi, oi!”
- Miners took the Cornish Pasty to America, and even today, there are many Cornish Pasty shops in the mining towns of Michigan.
- Legend has it that the Devil would never venture across the River Tamar into Cornwall, for fear of being put in a Cornish Pasty.
If heating from frozen:
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees, place pasties on a baking tray and bake for 30-35 mins if you have a food thermometer, check the inside exceeds 165 f.
If heating pasty from chilled:
Heat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 20-25 mins
Pasties are great served with vegetables or a salad, but just as good on their own.
You can bake them and put them in insulated containers and enjoy a warm lunch within a couple of hours!
However you eat yours, we hope you enjoy your meal!
