Bakers from around the world will try to show they have the upper crust at a championship which will bring the pasty home to Cornwall.
Registration for The Eden Project's first ever International Pasty Championships will open on Thursday. Organisers have already seen strong interest from as far afield as America and Australia for the contest, on March 3.
Tony Trenerry, senior sous chef at Eden, said: "It just shows how the pasty has gone from this little corner of Great Britain to many far distant places across the globe."
Entry costs £10, including free entry to the Eden Project. For details see www.eden project.com or ring the Eden Box Office on 01726 811972.
