Well, the results of the annual Great Aussie Pie Comp are in, and we are thrilled to have scored not one but TWO medals for some of our outstanding pastry products, which we’ve always reckoned were among Sydney’s best pies….
This year we took home (drumroll please)….
BRONZE in the Sausage Roll Category for our Classic Sausage Roll
BRONZE in the Gourmet Meat Pie Category for our Beef Curry Pie with Yogurt
While we have long felt quietly confident that we stood a good chance in any competition to discover Sydney’s best pies, to take out gongs for the whole of Australia is pretty special and we were thrilled when we were notified by the comp officials!
We weren’t, however surprised at all that it was these two particular products which received the medals….
Many people have said that our Classic Sausage Roll is one of the best they’ve ever tasted, and that it doesn’t give them indigestion as some sausage rolls do. We believe the secret lies in the high quality mince we use, and the sourdough bread crumbs – from our own loaves – which lightens the filling.
There are also no hidden ‘nasties’ in these glorious pastry snacks – no preservatives, e-numbers, artificial colours or sugar – and a lot less salt than most.
The Beef Curry Pie, our newest, has been a superstar from the start, though it sparked some heated words during the creative process – pun intended. Too hot? Not hot enough? It’s a fine line, and a personal thing. We think this medal proves we’ve gotten the flavour profile – and the chili quotient – just right.
Enriched with lentils and made creamy with the addition of a little tangy natural yogurt, it’s a satisfying, meaty pie to savour throughout the winter months! That combination of tomatoes, Garum Masala (Indian spice mix), chunky tender Aussie beef, ginger and of course chili has created a flavour profile that’s very hard to resist. We love it served with a little more yogurt and some fresh coriander too.
