The World Pasty Championships are underway at the Eden Project this morning. More than 100 professional and amateur bakers are taking part in the second annual event. Among them is Cornish-born Mike Amery, who has come from his home in Pennsylvania, USA, to take part.
Mike is baking a traditional Cornish pasty and - in the non-Cornish category - a lamb and mint version. Last year's amateur winner Billy Deakin will attempt to retain his title, but his professional counterpart Graham Cornish won't be competing.
Instead, Graham is offering visitors the chance to sample his produce. The climax of the event is the Oggy Oscars Awards Ceremony at 5pm.
Staff at Cornwall's Eden Project are waiting to find out where the axe will fall after the attraction announced seventy jobs will go there this year. The cost-cutting decision's follows a drop in visitor numbers - the Olympics and poor weather have been blamed. Watch Steve Hardy's report.
Far fewer visitors came to Cornwall in 2012 due to a combination of the Olympics, poor summer and autumn weather and the lasting effects of the recession.
This, coupled with enormous pressure on income in the charity sector and the well-documented challenges of fundraising in the current economic climate have made it necessary to make substantial cuts to the cost base.
No sugar-coated pill will ease the anguish for those affected, all we can say to those of you who will be leaving is thank you so much for all you have given Eden and we hope you will depart feeling a great deal of pride in all you have achieved in creating a very special place, for now and for the future.
– Sir Tim Smit, Eden's Chief Executive
Eden currently has 445 full-time equivalent jobs. The job losses are planned across all areas of its operation.
