A Cornish pasty is a type of pastry from Cornwall, England. It is usually filled with ground beef, vegetables and potatoes inside a flaky pastry crust, and then baked.[1]

Cornish pasties are served at the Three Broomsticks Inn, where they are accompanied by a garden salad with choice of dressing.[1]


On 24 June, 1995, Cornish pasties were among the food served for lunch on the day of the Third Task of the Triwizard Tournament.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • They are sold at the Three Broomsticks Inn in the The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.[1]
  • According to the Googlefish (translating the linked German page below), the literal translation of the German name for this foodstuff is "puff-pastry pasty*, which is odd as this foodstuff is usually made with ordinary pastry, not puff pastry. Perhaps the German version is made from puff pastry.
