Devon Cream Tea vs Cornish Pasty...Which One Came Out On Top?

Ciao friends!

When you visit our Devon or Cornwall holiday parks, the old age Devon Cream Tea vs Cornish Pasty debate seems to be unavoidable.

Loyal visitors to our Cornwall caravan parks will always back the Cornish Pasty, while regular visitors to our Devon holiday parks remain unmoved and fight the Devon Cream Tea corner!

Me? I prefer the classico pepperoni pizza, but that wasn't eligible for Gourmet Society's Top UK Regional Dishes Survey, which might just put the Cream Tea vs Pasty debate to bed...

The results are as follows:

1. Yorkshire Puddings
2. Cornish Pasties
3. Devon Cream Tea
4. Bakewell Tart
5. Cheddar Cheese

Yorkshire Puddings came out on top, with Cornish Pasties narrowly beating the Devon Cream Tea to second place!

Matt Turner, CEO of Gourmet Society, said: "Brits are spoilt for choice when it comes to trying regional dishes from around the UK, so it's nice to see that plenty of regions are still sticking to their roots and backing their local dish."

"I often eat all over the country when working, but there is certainly nothing better than coming back to Yorkshire to enjoy a proper Yorkshire pudding with a Sunday Roast. We can understand why it has been voted Britain's favourite, but it is nice to see a range of dishes from every part of the UK appearing in the top five."

Another stat to come out of the survey is 53% of people in Cornwall say their regional dishes are considered to be a part of their heritage, which is evident if you've spent time in the county on your caravan holidays in Cornwall.
