Celebrate Cornish Pasties

The first ever Cornish Pasty Week will be celebrated throughout Cornwall from Sunday 25th February 2018 until 3rd March. This will culminate in the ‘Oggy Oscars’ – the seventh-annual World Pasty Championships – held on Saturday 3rd March at the Eden Project, Cornwall.

The World Pasty Championships take place every year on the Saturday before St Piran’s Day  in Cornwall.   Bakers come from across Cornwall, the UK and the world to take part in the competition and celebrate Cornwall’s national dish.

The humble Cornish pasty originated in the mines but is now everyone’s firm favourite Cornish treat. The Cornish pasty  now has protection to ensure it’s quality and reputation  is maintained. If you are a lover of Cornish Pasties  you can join in during Cornish pasty week  using #pastysmile

What’s your favourite filling and where are the best Cornish pasties to be found  in North Cornwall?

If you are at Gilbert lodge  during National Cornish Pasty week, you can buy some to eat or take home from the Cornish Bakery in Tintagel –  I can smell them as I type – delicious!
