DINNER FOR ONE .........In the Bolt-Hole.
The cornish pasty.
The Cornish Tin and copper miners would take for their dinner a Cornish pasty, this would be a crescent-shaped pastry pie one part filled with diced meat and potato Swedes and onion, the other part would the sweet such as diced apple, the pasty would be sealed by hand 'crimping' the edges together thus sealing in the contents, the crimp would serve as a handle but not eaten thus avoiding touching the pasty with his hands as they could be contaminated with dangerous substances such as Arsenic from the mined ore. the meal was often consumed in the 'Bolt-hole' this was a small safe-place carved out from the mine wall for the miner to go when blasting the rock face.
