A Book by Billy Deakin, THREE Times Cornish Pasty Champion

In 2012 The Eden Project, with the support of The Cornish Pasty Association, hosted the inaugural World Pasty Championships.  As a keen amateur cook, a Cornishman, and a pasty lover I decided to enter, and took first place in the Amateur Cornish Pasty category.  A year later, I successfully defended my title, officially making me 2 times Amateur Cornish Pasty World Champion..

Once could have been a fluke, but after winning twice I think it's safe to say that I know how to make a proper pasty!  So now I want to share my passion for pasties, and teach some of my techniques, tips and recipes in a book which is titled:
"How To Make An Award Winning Cornish Pasty".
