Vales pasty

Val and her Oggies

Our delightful client Val has been making Oggies with her CAREGiver. Val has been wanting to make pasties for a long time, her son always made them. "They were always so lovely" said Val. So Val and Nicola gave it a go, it was a success. Val was so pleased ?? #celebratinghomecare #madewithcare An Oggie is a Cornish Pasty. Originally these were eaten by miners in Cornwall, a county in the extreme southwest of England. Basically it is pastry wrapped around a filling. Originally the filling was savoury at one end and sweet at the other.
