Grab Yourself a Pasty — they’re brilliant!

19 May

Never knew much about these treats — some call them “British Soul Food.”

Imagine a savory meat turnover or maybe a pot pie in a more portable form.

There is a great place here in Sarasota that I would highly recommend. They will even mail you a few pasties if you can’t make the trip down this way. The eatery is called 4 & 20 Pasty Company and it’s located in an otherwise non-descript strip center on Swift Road. Just look for the Union Jack flying proudly overhead. The British couple who run the place are wonderful as well — very friendly and always helpful. They love what they do and it shows. You can taste the TLC in their food too!

My favorite pasty flavor is the Chicken Tikka Masala — stuffed with chicken, yogurt and Indian spices. The Shepherd’s Pie version (ground beef, onion, and potato filled and served up with a dark brown dipping sauce) is also extremely tasty. Each pasty runs about $6. They’re a meal in themselves.   

Give ’em a try or seek out a similar eatery in your neck of the woods.  You won’t be sorry. mate! Visit them online at
