Australia’s best pie has now been crowned, and it’s a far cry from your traditional beef pie.
The winning combination has raised some eyebrows among the ‘Today’ panel, and we can understand why.
After more than 1700 pies and pasties were tasted, the Satay Seafood Pie from Country Cob Bakery from Victoria took out the top prize.
Chan Khun, who is the chef behind the delicious creation said that the pie doesn’t need to be paired with sauce in order for it taste delicious.
Chan Khun winning the Australia’s Best Pie Awards/ FacebookThe awards are held by the Baking Association of Australia, and pie aficionados are closely judging filling, pastry, presentation, creativity and flavour.
Head Judge, Stewart Latter knows what he’s looking for when he’s examining the pastries.
‘If the pie meat is too sloppy, like too runny, there is nothing worse than eating a hot pie and you end up with it all over yourself or if the pastry is not baked enough’ he told 9News.
Khun is no stranger to taking out awards for his pastries. Last year, he won the award for the country’s best plain mince pie.
