Did you know that the earliest written record of pasty ingredients was found right here in Plymouth, and that an 'oggy' man once stood every night at the Devon Dockyard gates?
A Story of Plymouth's Past(ies) tells some fascinating tales about pasty bakers from 100 years ago, bicycle boys who once brought oggies to your door and the first local family to make their living selling just pasties and pies. Open up to meet some very important pasty people and find out how to make - and crimp - your own classic pasty.
