GAGS Pasty champ is...cornish!
THE first ever World Pasty Championships has been won by the aptly named Graham CORNISH.
Talented chef Graham scooped two prizes for his tasty creations in the contest – which saw more than 100 budding chefs compete at the Eden Project in Cornwall.
The Ginsters worker was victorious in the Cornish Pasty Professional and Open Savoury Professional categories.
His Cornish pasty followed a traditional recipe of skirt beef and vegetables, while his open savoury pasty contained a selection of smoked fish, parsley, saffron and clotted cream.
Delighted Graham, from Callington, Cornwall, said: “I am humbled to win this award. I’ve been making them since I was five.”
The Championships attracted more than 100 entries worldwide.
