The sixth annual celebration of Cornwall's most famous dish the pasty takes place at the Eden Project this Saturday, 4th March.  

The World Pasty Championships feature varieties from Cornwall as well as from around the world, and visitors are encouraged to take part or just come along and enjoy the feast of entertainment taking place throughout the day. There will be live music and comedy from Kernow King, Fisherman's Friends and Kathryn Williams.

Eden’s World Pasty Championships celebrate the traditional Cornish pasty recipe, as well as some more unusual varieties. From the Americas to Australia, pasties derived from recipes passed down by Cornish migrants over centuries are eaten and enjoyed by many millions of people. The championships are supported by the Cornish Pasty Association.

The ‘Amateur’ competition category is being sponsored this year by the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and Mono Equipment, and is open to those aged 16 and over at the date of the competition (4th March 2017) who do not work in the catering industry as a professional baker or cook.
