    The British Pie Awards
    The British Pie Awards

    We've entered two of our pasties into the British Pie Awards on the 9th of March 2016.

    A British Pie Award has become a badge of honour among experts in the craft so we're really excited to be entering!

    Wish us luck! We're going for gold with our best selling Traditional Cornish and our Pasty Dreamers Winner, The Compton Pasty.

    TRADITIONAL CORNISH PASTY
    Handmade in Cornwall. Nothing but the best lean skirt beef, diced not minced, with locally grown potato, turnip and onion with just the right amount of salt and pepper drizzled on top, carefully wrapped up in delicious flaky pastry made with British wheat with a hand crimped crust.

    COMPTON PASTY
    Juicy pork and beef meatballs in a tomato salsa with red peppers, red onion, garlic and a touch of chorizo. Enriched with fresh mozzarella and Cornish Cheddar cheeses and Trewithen’s Cornish cream, all delicately seasoned with oregano, marjoram, paprika and fennel with a mild chilli kick. Wrapped up in our multi-award winning flaky pastry and a hand crimped crust to seal in the goodness! And of course The Compton Pasty is made in Cornwall!

    The British Pie Awards
    An institution for pastry-connoisseurs country-wide. The annual event sees hundreds of pie-makers gather for a celebration and competition of this British culinary favourite. Held each year in Melton Mowbray, they are lucky enough to have a selection of the most knowledgeable figures in the industry on-hand presiding over the day’s proceedings.
