Cousin Jacks Cornish Cream Tea Weekend Notes – Critic Review

We had a lovely positive review on our pasties from yesterday. To quote a bit:

Cousin Jack’s Pasty Co is owned by Mark Bedford who migrated from the UK to bring with him the knowledge, skill and awesomeness that is pastie-making. Along with a pretty sweet accent, he brought Aussie’s a true Cornish Pastie recipe. A delicious combination of diced potatoes, turnip, onion and chunks of steak in crispy pastry, but if you ask me there’s a bit of magic to it because seriously nothing like it!

BBM Magazine – Best of British feature

BBM magazine which is read Australia wide by a large amount of British ex-pats, just featured Cousin Jacks Pasty Co in their ‘The Best of British…’ article. They said “If you’re missing the traditional Cornish pasty, never fear, Cousin Jacks Pasty Co. have the answer to your prayers…… The team here are dedicated to making authentic pasties”

It’s good to see the BBM team appreciate a proper pasty in-between writing.

Weekend Notes – Writeup/Review

We found a really lovely review of a Cousin Jacks store visit on Alexandra Lazcano’s food blog. She never introduced herself as she ate at the store, but she wrote such lovely things about her visit to the store and the pasties she tried, thank you kindly Alexandra.
Snip of weekend notes

A short snippet reads “If you thought you’d tasted a pastie, then I am sorry to say, but you have not, you’ve never lived, tasted and relished in the deliciousness of Cousin Jack’s Pasties.”

and “The cute store in Bondi Junction’s Royal Arcade has brought to Bondi Junction, something that has been missing. Cousin Jack’s has that hipster chic feel without being pretentious. It’s run by a lovely group of guys and girls who know their pasties, back to front and make them from scratch.”
