Martin Chiffers to share his pastry skills at World Pasty Championships 2014

Martin Chiffers, president of the UK Pastry Team Coupe du Monde (who earlier this week won the European Pastry Championship) is to be guest chef presenter at the third annual World Pasty Championships, at the Eden Project in St Austell.

Chiffers, who hails from Madron in Cornwall, will be showing visitors to the World Pasty Championships his method for making the perfect pastry for a pasty. He is returning to the World Pasty Championships after making his debut last year, where he showed visitors how to make a sweet potato, red bean paste and ginger pasty in short, sweet pastry inspired by his travels and work in Vietnam, Korea and Japan.

Registration is now open with categories split between those who would like to make a traditional Cornish pasty, which abides by strict guidelines and is made in Cornwall, and those who want to make any other type of savoury pasty.

For more information on the competition visit Entry costs £10 per adult category or £5 for the junior categories. This entitles the competitor and one guest to free entry to the Eden Project on the day of the competition. Entries will be strictly limited so early registration is advised.

The Championships are backed by the Cornish Pasty Association after it won European Union Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status for the Cornish pasty last year.
