A Cornishman has taken on a nation famed for its baking ability by opening a successful Cornish Pasty shop in the home of the Danish Pastry.
Jason Mather partnered with Indian Queens-based Crantock Bakery to open the Cornish Pasty House in the Latin quarter of Copenhagen earlier this year.
Mather claims his is the first Cornish Pasty shop in Denmark: “I love pasties, and I was sure that the Danes would too. I have been delighted how the people of Copenhagen have taken to them.
“Denmark is famous for its bakeries but they mostly specialise in sweet products. I felt there was a gap in the market for a quality product and wanted to see how the Cornish Pasty fared against the Danish Pastry.”
Chris Ridge, Crantock’s export manager, added: “We export our products throughout Europe to countries such as France and Cyprus. We know that when people are living or are on holiday abroad they love a genuine hand crimped Cornish pasty made to a traditional recipe. We wish Jason the best of luck in the future and look forward to working with him further.”
