From Sunday 23rd February, to its grand finale on Saturday 29th February at the World Pasty Championships at the Eden Project, Cornish Pasty Week will return for another week-long celebration for lovers of Cornwall’s hero food. Here’s a glimpse of what’s to come.
Taking another tour of Cornwall, our favourite characters will be visiting some of the suppliers of the beautiful, fresh, natural ingredients that go into a genuine Cornish pasty. Along the way, they’ll be helping as many people as possible to find out more about how a real Cornish pasty is made and what makes it so special. Contact us now if you know of a school, community group or organisation who would love to get involved.
Following its successful launch in 2019, the quest to find the world’s fastest crimper continues. Competitors from bakeries producing genuine, certified, Cornish pasties will compete to find the fastest fingers in the west as they go head to head to see who can crimp the most pasties in 3 minutes. Will Ingrida from Rowe’s the Bakers retain her title?
Anyone can take part in Cornish Pasty Week with a #pastysmile. Simply download and print off your own smile to show how much you love a genuine Cornish pasty.
Don’t forget to ping us your snaps via social media!
The grand finale to Cornish Pasty Week, this is the day that professionals, amateurs, the young and the not so young come together at the Eden Project for a day of music and fun where Cornwall’s culinary gift to the world is the unquestionable hero of the day.
The 2020 World Pasty Championships will take place on Saturday 29th February.
Entries open on 15 November 2019 and close at midnight on Sunday 23rd February.
