A WEST COUNTRY bakery chain makes the best pasty — and that's official.
Warrens Bakery, the oldest Cornish pasty-making company in the world, has scooped gold in the British Pie Making Awards of 2014.
The company — which has branches in Teignmouth, Torquay, Newton Abbot and Paignton — was awarded the highly prized medal for its traditional Cornish pasty.
Mark Sullivan, company chairman, was delighted with the award. He said: "Warrens Bakery has been making Cornish pasties for more than 150 years and we have always believed the quality of our pasties matches up to our unique heritage.
"It is great to be recognised with another prestigious award, which follows on from our recent one at the World Pasty Championship.
"This is a fantastic team effort — we submitted a pasty direct from crimping line in St Just, so everyone who buys a Warrens Bakery Cornish pasty will get the same gold quality down to the last bite"
Jason Jobling, operations director and head of Warrens Bakery's team of Master Bakers, said "There is no substitute for quality ingredients, hand crimped with care, and crafted with years of experience."
