Pure Pasty Company, a Vienna-based bakery, has been awarded silver and bronze medals in the Open Savoury Category at the Eden Project on February 29.

According to the Vienna Connection, “The event has become an annual pilgrimage for Mike and Pure Pasty Company despite distance and the weather! As Burgess notes, “We love Cornwall, having established a connection as a child, so it’s great to be back amongst friends once again. I don’t think I’ve seen a company take two of the three top spots before, so I’m incredibly proud of my team’s efforts. I’ve often dreamed of, ‘what if we take more than one spot?’ and now we’ve done it!” We‘re also chuffed to bits that one of our supporters took the title for Amateur Open Pasty. It’s magnificent to see her on stage looking so happy.”

As per Vienna Connection, “Entering the competition for the fourth year running, the American bakery from Virginia won the first prize in the Company Open Savoury category two years running. Open Savoury allows for experimentation away from the traditional Cornish-style pasty. The first time they won with that ever-divisive savory ingredient – pineapple, which served to add a touch of sweetness to the spice in Chicken BBQ. Last year they returned with seasonally inspired favorites the Turkey, Stuffing, and Cranberry and were the victors again.”
