Born from a love for great pastry, Dorset Pastry is a family-run business which started in the heart of every home – the kitchen. We’re producers of fine pastry made in the traditional way.
Nestled amid the rolling hills of West Dorset, we source only the best ingredients and our puff pastry is hand-folded and rested in the traditional way to maintain the highest quality. None of our pastry contains any stabilisers, relaxants or additives so commonly used to ensure consistency in mass production. This is why our pastry is sold frozen and the taste and characteristics may vary depending on the season and weather conditions during which the wheat is harvested and the butter produced. We like to think this is what gives us the edge – a unique taste inspired by the West Country and all its elements.
In addition to our organic puff pastry, we also produce shortcrust and sweet shortcrust pastries as well as a non-organic, pure range using the same traditional methods so that quality is never compromised.
It was our love of high quality puff pastry that inspired us to create our tried and tested method of pastry production. We incorporated the ideology of the Slow Food Movement leading us to produce the pastry we sell today – a fine, pure butter puff pastry that is second to none!
Made for both the retail market and food service industry there is an increasing demand for all our pastries. Our puff pastry, Dorset Pastry’s signature, remains the most popular, used in many of the country’s best restaurants regularly receiving accolades from top chefs. Over the years, we have gained a string of national awards and press attention and our pastry is stocked by a range of companies all across the UK. You can find out more about our retailers, which includes John Lewis, Waitrose and Ocado, on our website as well as suggestions of how to create delicious meals using our pastry.
