World Pasty Championships

March 3, 2012 by staff 

World Pasty Championships, It’s the dish that made Cornwall famous… now it sets oggie experts one against the other. The World Pasty Championships are being held today at Eden.

Judges will be checking for quality of pastry… seasoning… and how well its crimped.

The inaugural World Past Championships are a chance for professional and amateur pasty makers in Cornwall, the rest of the UK and the world to parade their war*s.

The Championships are being backed by the Cornish Pasty Association after it won European Union Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status for the Cornish pasty last year.

It means only pasty makers based in Cornwall, who make pasties in a traditional manner and follow a traditional recipe are able to label their products as Cornish Pasties

Tony Trenerry, Eden’s senior sous chef, said: “Since we announced the championships we’ve been getting some really exciting interest, not only from pasty-makers in this country, but from as far afield as America and Australia.

“It just shows how the pasty has gone from this little corner of Great Britain to many far distant places across the globe,” he said. “The championships are a way of bringing some of that fantastic tradition back in one place where the pasty originated.

“It’s an opportunity for both makers of the classic Cornish pasty and also the creators of more unusual pasties to come and parade their war*s on this great stage.”
