A Cornish pasty made using local ingredients from near our Fowey restaurants

A company in Devon has created what is believed to be the first ever hybrid pasty, which uses ingredients from both Devon and Cornwall.

Venus Company are based in Totnes, and have worked together with the Posh Pasty Company to create a unique steak pasty.

The pasty contains beef skirt, ale, grated horseradish, cabbage, potato, onion, carrots and swede. The beef is from Devon, the ale and butter from Cornwall, while the vegetables are grown in both counties.

There has been a discussion for many years about which county invented the pasty, with both trying to claim ownership of the savoury delight.

The "Devonwall" pasty has already proven to be a big hit, and Venus owner Michael Smith has said he was looking to break the mould, rather than dismissing the Cornish pasty altogether.

He also believes that Devon and Cornwall are stronger if they work together, which would lead to "an extraordinary food base".

"We are trying to take advantage of the phenomenal food resources here by taking the best of both Devon and Cornwall and to come up with a product that represents Venus", Mr Smith stated.

We believe that fresh, local ingredients are important to creating excellent food. This is why we source local to help people get a true taste of Cornwall when looking to eat in Fowey restaurants. Why not take a look at our menu and book yourself a table today?
