Meat pies with fillings such as steak, cheese, steak and kidney, minced beef, or chicken and mushroom are popular in the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand and Nigeria as take-away snacks. They are also served with chips as an alternative to fish and chips at British chip shops. The Cornish pasty, which so admirably comprises a dinner in itself—meat, potatoes, and other good things well cooked and made up into so portable a form—was a subject of much admiration and reminded me of the old coaching days. Cornish pasties are very popular with the working classes in this neighborhood and have lately been successfully introduced into some parts of Devonshire. They are made of small pieces of beef, and thin slices of potatoes, highly peppered and enclosed in wrappers of paste.

The need for nutritious, easy-to-store, easy-to-carry, and long-lasting foods on long journeys, in particular at sea, was initially solved by taking live food along with a butcher or cook. However, this took up additional space on what were either horse-powered treks or small ships, reducing the time of travel before additional food was required. This resulted in early armies adopting the style of hunter-foraging.
Pies remained as a staple of traveling and working peoples in the colder northern European countries, with regional variations based on both the locally grown and available meats, as well as the locally farmed cereal crop. The Cornish pasty is an adaptation of the pie to a working man’s daily food needs.
