Cornwall and Devon Walks with Julia Bradbury saw the keen walker explore the beauty of the Cornish coast today. As well as walking the cliffs and inhaling the fresh air, Bradbury also found out more about the food in the region. First up was learning how to make Cornish pasties.

“Your pasty lady was wrong. Traditionally pasties had a sweet and savoury each end so it was a complete meal,” one tweeted.

Others explained there is a “pasty” which is sweet and savoury but it’s not from Cornwall.

“Savoury and sweet ‘pasty’ is a Bedfordshire delicacy called a ‘Bedfordshire clanger’,” one Twitter user wrote.

The crust also proved a controversial topic among viewers.


“Crimping over the top makes it a DEVONSHIRE pasty a semicircular crust around the edge makes it a CORNISH pasty,” one Twitter user pointed out.

However, the point in the show which caused the biggest uproar was when Bradbury tucked into an afternoon tea.

Traditionally Cornish cream teas include scones served with cream and jam.

But which topping goes on the scone first is often a point of contention.

“Absolutely shocking behaviour whilst in Cornwall @JuliaBradbury #jamfirst !!” another penned.

“Well this is just terrible @JuliaBradbury has gone #creamfirst on her scone and she was in #Cornwall We all know that @Jam_First is the right way!” a third said.

However, others supported her decision to go cream then jam.

“Yes yes yes….you put the cream on before the jam. Absolutely nailed it,” one said.

“Well, @JuliaBradbury does scones correctly. Well done Julia. Bloody well done,” another wrote.
