Today is St Patrick's Day, and while we can't go to the pub to celebrate you can still pick up a snack to celebrate.

Ginsters have created a new pasty that combines 100% British farmed beef with potato, carrot, onion, swede, leek, chestnut mushrooms, black treacle, garlic and Guinness.

The recipe was created by Cornish born, award-winning head chef, Chris Eden, alongside the master brewers at Guinness.

Enjoy 80-layers of light, melt-in-the-mouth puff pastry, and the vegetables come from Hay Farm on Cornwall’s Rame Peninsula - 15 miles from the Ginsters bakery. 

Commenting on the launch Sam Mitchell, Ginsters Managing Director, said: “We’re all looking for more excitement at the moment and ways to mix things up when it comes to mealtimes - it’s all about trying new flavours, combinations and recipes.”  

“Teaming up with the GUINNESS master brewers, Chris and our chefs have created a bold new flavour which takes a loved recipe to the next level.  It’s a new take on tradition bringing together our signature tastes.  There’s the iconic undertones of chocolate, coffee and fire roasted barley from GUINNESS with our Ginsters culinary twist for a unique slice like no other.” 

Neil Shah, Head of Guinness GB, adds “GUINNESS and food is an iconic combination, be it as an ingredient or as a perfect pairing. Teaming up with Ginsters is a celebration of our unique heritages and shared values, bringing together the best of our regions – all whilst having fun with flavours and bringing consumers something new.”
