World Pasty Championships
Ciao everyone, Cheffy here again.
The competition’s returning for a 3rd successive year and I’m planning on sprinkling a little Italian on it – without giving too much away.
The World Pasty Championships celebrate Cornwall’s most famous traditional recipe, but also welcome the unusual and surprising varieties. Entries are invited from around the world, with local bakers looking to set the bar high. The categories include:
Traditional Cornish Pasty – Company
Traditional Cornish Pasty – Professional
Traditional Cornish Pasty – Amateur
Traditional Cornish Pasty – Junior
Open Savoury – Company
Open Savoury – Professional
Open Savoury – Amateur
Open Savoury – Junior
Prices start from £5 for a junior and £10 for all other entries. I’m hoping to join Terry O’Connor and Suzanne Manson on the Open Savoury winners list!
Entertainment features throughout the day, with comedy and live music from Hedluv and Passman – a Cornish rap duo, Grapefruit Moon and Winter Mountain – a contemporary folk band. TV chef James Strawbridge and top pastry chef Martin Chiffers will also be on hand with their best pasty making tips.
