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.




World’s Fastest Crimper

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?
