A Cornish pasty enthusiast has sparked controversy for the unusual condiment he pours over the baked treat – a jug of cold milk.
Paul George, a dairy farmer from Tresillian, near Truro, was filmed tucking into a pasty covered with the dairy product and advised other people to try it out.
In the clip, he brings a freshly-baked pasty out of the oven.
"This is what you call a proper pasty, it's even smiling at me," he says.
Paul then cuts the pasty open and gets a big jug of milk, pouring the contents inside the pasty.
"Don't be shy, put a nice big drop on," he says.
Explaining the tradition, he told Cornwall Live : "We’ve been proud dairy farmers for generations, and we’ve been pouring the finest, freshest Cornish milk over our pasties for generations as well.
"As a child, I can remember the milk being poured straight over our pasties as soon as it came out of the Aga.
"It helped cool it down so you could eat it quickly, stopping us kids getting burnt mouths, but also softened the contents all up nicely as well.

"Everyone could get back to work in the fields without having to wait around for their pasty to cool down, plus, it tastes great!"
Sam Cox, the owner of Helluva Pasties, was surprised to learn of the practice.
She said: "We found out that one or two of our customers did this, so we decided to put a call out on social media to see how many people had actually heard of it or were in fact milk pourers themselves.
"We were surprised by the response, with people from all parts of Cornwall and further afield telling us that their families had always poured milk on their pasties and it was a tradition that had filtered down through the generations and was still going strong."

But not everyone shares Paul’s enthusiasm and some even posted vomit emojis to indicate the very thought made them feel sick.
Sam said: "Several people were less than impressed at the thought of covering their pasty in milk.
"One or two sick emojis appeared and some comments from shocked people who suggested the treatment of a pasty in this way was sacrilege."
Paul added: "It’s St Piran’s Day this week and what better time to try it. If you haven’t, give it a go!"
