Bakels Meat Pie Awards 2015

The Bakels Pie Awards were announced last night. As is normal for Meateaters we are only highlighting the meat pies because that’s what we think matters most.

Martin Bosley, celebrity chef and judge described the winning meat pie – a potato-top pie baked by Shane Forster from Greenmeadows New World Supermarket in Napier – as a spectacular pie.

“Everything about it…the pastry crust was perfectly executed, cooked all the way through. It was the perfect ratio of potato topping, the mince was lovely and rich tasting, a good balance with the gravy. The potato was just a cloud-like mash, just enough crispy”, he said.

Congratulations to all the winners!
