It's awards season! Hot on the heels of The World Pasty Championships are the celebrated British Pie Awards!
We're flying our Cornish flag high and proud with our pasties at The British Pie Awards - which are held on the 7th March in Melton Mowbray, the Rural Capital of Food, and hosted by the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association.
For the purposes of the Awards a pie is defined as the following: ‘A Pie is deemed to be a filling wholly encased in pastry and baked’.
We've gone in with an all star line-up with our Peppered Steak Pasty and our Sausage & Bean Melt - alongside some of our own favourites and new pasties for us in 2018!
THE TRADITIONAL CORNISH PASTY
A multi-award winner - it is our shining star - the icon we're celebrating our 20th Anniversary with! With its PGI status it represents Cornwall perfectly and we're proud of its authentic Cornish recipe and what it stands for to millions of people!
MEDITERRANEAN VEGETABLE PASTY
A Summer 2017 bestseller! Our new Summer pasty went down a storm last year - so much so that we've made it a part of our day to day! You'll know why when you've tried it! Authentic Greek feta, packed with tomatoes, peppers, courgettes and oregano, finished in a light olive oil pastry.
We describe it as a "taste of summer” and it's our lightest pasty yet, containing just 350 calories!
STEAK & CORNISH BLUE PASTY
This is our new pasty for Spring/Summer 2018! It's a beauty! Packed full of steak - it is perfectly matched with the most delicious Cornish Blue cheese made by the Cornish Cheese Co.
Cornish Blue Cheese is a truly artisan hand made cheese, produced from milk supplied by the Stansfield’s family farm on the edge of Bodmin Moor near Liskeard in Cornwall. More on that soon!
THE QUORN PASTY
Another new pasty for 2018! We're super excited to have this on our menu in store soon! Especially made to add even more choice to our 'Everybody' ethos - we're sure this will be a big hit with fellow vegetarians! Stay tuned for more news on this one - including its launch date in store!
