The Phat Pasty Co have been crowned as The Cornish Pasty Company 2020 at the World Pasty Championships held at Eden.
Bringing together competitors from around the World and as far afield as Canada, Austria and the USA, a team of 40 judges were faced with over 200 pasties. The Phat Pasty Co Traditional Cornish Pasty won out as the overall winner for the Company Cornish Pasty category.
Started 14 years ago, Phat have grown from a small husband and wife team, working from their home kitchen and delivering in a quirky converted ‘campervan’ to local businesses and events. Their range of pasties, made in Cornwall, is now available nationally via wholesalers, to operators throughout the country. Many sell the Phat Pasty range within their own catering operations and use the eye-catching Phat branding for their customers.
Their Phat Traditional Cornish Pasty won through using a higher meat content than a standard Cornish Pasty. British Farm Assured beef, potato, swede and onion mixed with Phat’s unique blend of seasoning and wrapped in a shortcrust pastry.
Following on from the win in Cornwall, The Phat Pasty Co went on to be runners up in the British Pie Awards Pasty Category in Melton Mowbray, winning Highly Commended, 2 Golds, 3 Silvers and a Bronze. Their star was the Keralan, Cauliflower, Chickpea & Onion Bhaji vegan Pasty, closely followed by their Butternut Squash & Vegan Feta Pasty. The West Cornwall Pasty Company were the overall Pasty Class winner with a Cheese & Spinach Pasty.
Paul, Phat Controller , said : “It’s been an amazing week for Phat – first winning the Cornish Pasty Company Award in the World Pasty Championships and now having 6 further awards, including the overall Pasty Class ‘Runner Up’ with our vegan pasties. It also goes to prove that whilst a Traditional Cornish Pasty will always be a firm favourite, vegan pasties and pies must be part of the mainstream offer. We are being seen for great tasting authentic pasties with plant-based options and this is now a significant part of our growing business’
Phat’s full range of pasties are available nationally from Bidfood and selective regional wholesalers.
