He learned it at his dad's knee.
Jerry McNamee knows what goes into a great meat pastie - one of the linchpins of traditional Irish cooking.
"I had a lot of fun making these with my dad," said McNamee, a Montana native who moved to Bowling Green 14 months ago. His father, Bob McNamee, is a professional baker and taught Jerry how to create this oh-so-Irish recipe when Jerry was about 14.
In fact, it was the first food he ever learned to make.
"My Grandmother Helen was the inspiration" for the pasties, he adds.
McNamee's parents were high school sweethearts in Anaconda, Montana, a part of the state known for its copper mining.
"Pasties are synonymous with copper mining. They're miners' food, easy to take to work."
McNamee, who boasts 90 percent Irish descent, said most Americans credit pasties to the Irish, although "some say to Cornish."
