Entries Open for First Pasty World Championships

Entries Open for First Pasty World Championships

Published by the Pirate FM News Teamat 6:01am 3rd February 2012.

The search to find the finest pasty on the planet - gets underway in Cornwall.

Eden's launching the first ever World Championships.

Entries are now open ahead of the contest at the biomes in March. It follows the granting of European Union Protected Geographical Indication status last year. It means only pasty makers based in Cornwall using a traditional recipe are allowed to label their products as Cornish pasties.

Tony Trenerry, Senior Sous Chef at the Eden Project, said: “Since we announced the World Pasty 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.

“The World Pasty 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 but also the creators of more unusual pasties to come and parade their wares on this great stage.”
