A letter from 'ome

    For a Cornish miner deep within the earth, a warm lunch was, no doubt, as welcome as a letter from home. And truth to tell, Deadly Reckoning features a scene in which pasties are being salivated over. Who could write a book (even a mystery) set in Butte without including them;ubiquitous as they are in every day life here?


You know you're talking to an out of towner if the delicacy is pronounced pasteTY and not PASSty. For all the details about the history of this culinary delight, here's a full page article by an Associated Press reporter. (Meanwhile, everyone in town is saying, duh - who doesn't know what and where pasties come from?)
