The Pure Pasty Co writes: "We travel home to Cornwall every year for the World Pasty Championships.
We’ve won the Open Savoury category twice (2018+19)."
|Several flavors made up our lunch Saturday: all delicious. What I liked: Moroccan Lamb|
and Provençal Vegetable. They are sold frozen, to be baked just before eating.
I've tried the pasties in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. These are much more varied.
The Swiss Bakery

Several types of rolls, sandwiches, and pastries made there are just wonderful. Swiss Bakery Website.
The Russian Gourmet
|A small shop crammed with fascinating imports.|
|Many types of vegetables in jars, as was typical in|
20th century Russia.
We were particularly interested in trying the Borodinsky rye bread which is made at The Russian Gourmet in Fairfax -- WEBSITE. We enjoyed it, and also tried several other items imported from Latvia, Armenia, and elsewhere in the former SSRs.
