Now, while you wouldn't call it sport - there was a definite competitive edge in the air at one event in Cornwall at the weekend - as hundreds of cooks lined up for the World Pasty Championships.
The Eden Project hosted the annual event now in its fifth year - which very appropriately was held on St Piran's Day - the patron saint of Cornwall.
More than 200 pasties were entered into the eight classes covering amateurs, professionals, juniors and companies. Some people were even inspired by the Bushtucker trials on I'm a Celebrity.
The World Pasty Championships are now firmly established on the Cornish Calendar. Secret Recipes are already being worked on for next year's event.
