I am the current World Pasty Champion, and 2 times Masterchef competitor AMA
My name is Billy Deakin, I won the inaugural World Pasty Championships last year and then successfully defended my title this year.
I've always had a passion for food, and have appeared on TV's Masterchef 2 years running. My recipes have appeared in a number of magazines, newspapers and web sites and I'm now writing a book about the Cornish Pasty and funding the publishing via a Kickstarter project. AMA.

EDIT: Wow, I was expecting 2 or 3 questions not this much interest! Thanks for all the questions and comments everyone, keep them coming I'll be here for a while...
Also, I should have mentioned originally that the World Pasty Championships are held each year at the Eden Project in association with the Cornish Pasty Association. Here are links to those 2 sites...
Edit 2: Thanks for all the interest guys. Questions and comments seem to have slowed down now, but I'll log in again later and answer any more. Thanks to everyone who has supported the book so far, and for the suggestions, and if you want to keep updated then like the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/properpasties
