Three of our favourite local pasty makers
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
One of the highlights of the Regatta was the giant pasty, which is a traditional part of the occasion.
Each year bakers use 10kg of steak, 5kg of swede and 3kg of onions to bake the 8ft giant pasty, which is then ceremonially shipped from Mevagissey to Fowey for the regatta.
Anyway, that got us thinking, what are our favourite pasties?
1 Fran's Pantry's traditional pasty
Fran's Pantry is a fantastic shop which sells all sorts of lovely locl produce.
It's in Lostwithiel, just a few miles from The Cormorant, and is stocked full of cheese, pies, chutneys and jams.
But its best product is its traditional Cornish pasty, made with local vegetables and local beef skirt, which staff collect every day from just down the road at Liddicoat's butchers.
2 Kittow's Butchers Pasty Selection
If it's choice you're after then Kittow's, who supply us with or meat here at The Cormorant's award-winning restaurant, have a selection of different pasties for you.
Made locally by a secret supplier the butchers stocks pasties in a range of flavours - from traditional Cornish to bacon and leek, cheese and onion and more.
Kittow's promises one thing - its pasties are 'ansome.
3 James Strawbridge's Posh Pasties
A Fowey pasty experience wouldn't be complete without a trip to The Posh Pasty Co.
The company was set up last year by local lad and TV chef James Strawbridge, and sells an eye-opening range of pasties.
Steak and stout, minted lamb and yoghurt, spicy three bean, smoked haddock and leek, venison and even mackerel and beetroot complement the company's traditional pasty.
SO next time you're staying at River hotels Cornwall, why not try a local pasty?
