The Travelling Pasty: Trevethick’s send 6,000 pasties to France

Pasty making

Dubbed the “revelation of the festival” in 2013 we're sending 6,000 of our tasty ‘Trevethick’s Pastys’  with local catering company Downright Delicious to Festival Interceltique in Lorient, Brittany, as part of the food and drink element of the Cornwall exhibition.

The annual  festival ,which runs from 1st – 10th August, celebrates multi-cultural Celtic nations including Cornwall, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, the Isle of Man, Galicia, Asturias and the Acadie region of North East Canada. With 600,000 visitors over 10 days the festival is a fantastic opportunity for us to shout about Trevethick's Pastys.

France is famous for its sweet delicacies, and Breton in particular is famous for its beurre salé which is rolled into pastry and is mostly sweet, so tasting a peppery Trevethick’s Pasty is a sensation that the French festival goers wouldn’t necessarily expect.

We have made all of the 6,000 pasties by hand, as we always do, so Ian and the team have been pretty busy crimping lately!

Joining us will be beer and cider from Skinners Brewery and ingredients for the classic Cornish cream tea from Roddas Creamery, as well as a troupe of dancers, musicians and artists all celebrating Cornwall’s strong cultural heritage.

Bon voyage Trevethick's Pastys!
