60 million pies – this was one of them

Can you believe we consume 60 million pies each year. Apparently it’s a $120 million dollar business.

But someone out there is getting more than their fair share of pastry and congealed meat. That’s 15 pies a year for every man, woman and child.

It is heartening to note that the 2008 winning pie at Bakels New Zealand Supreme Pie Award was a vegetarian pie, albeit in a creamy (and probably fattening) white sauce.

Many of the pie awards went to Asian bakeries, surprising given the fact that you can’t buy a pie for love nor money in most Asian countries. Hopefully the Elite Bakery in Victoria Street, Wellington was able to add a few more awards to it’s trophy cabinet. That’s my preferred pie reseller, and their chips are to die for – but I’d be struggling to eat 15 in a week!

So, can anyone out there tell me who is eating all the pies? Cos it ain’t me and it ain’t any of my friends.
