Ahead of our second annual World Pasty Championships at Eden on Saturday 2 March 2013, we’ve updated our Google Map (see below) of handheld, filled snacks from around the world. We’ve added tasty pastries from Scotland, Iran and Afghanistan.

Some of these snacks are directly related to the Cornish pasty, while others are similar just because they are handheld, filled pastries. Click on the pasties on the map to read more about the snacks and see pictures. If you know some more handheld snacks that should be added to the map, let us know below this blog, or post some pictures on our Facebook Wall, or via Twitter.
Many thanks to Keith Ryan, whose Cornish Pasties website provided inspiration for this map.
