So Cornish Pasty Week is over for another year

It ran from Sunday 23rd February, to its grand finale on Saturday 29th February at the World Pasty Championships at the Eden Project,  a  week-long celebration for lovers of Cornwall’s hero food.

Here’s a  glimpse of what happened – and check out the gallery here

World’s Fastest Crimper

Following its successful launch in 2019, the quest to find the world’s fastest crimper continued. Competitors from bakeries producing genuine, certified, Cornish pasties competed to find the fastest fingers in the west as they went head to head to see who could crimp the most pasties in 3 minutes. The winner of the Grand Final at the Eden Project, was Jonathon Rosevear, of Cornish Premier Pasties  – based in St Columb Major
