The pies we make were inspired pies in Australia and England, but have been completely reinvented from the pastry base up – or the croissant top down.
Reinvented in the ingredients selected, the way we prepare and present them, and the way that you eat them.
We take 3 days to hand make and deep fill every one of our 9 pie flavors.
On the first day we carefully select all the proteins, the veggies, Australian wine, the herbs and spices, and then mix & marinate these elements for 24-28 hours.
On day two we slow cook the fillings for a minimum of two, and up to four hours. We then let that carefully seasoned and slow-cooked filling rest again overnight.
On day three we blind bake the pastry shell (this shell was one of 21 we tasted and tested), we add 4 oz of filling and hand cut and press our buttery croissant pastry top. On most pies we add our edible, rice paper label to identify the pie.
Stacking our pies
Our pies can be “au natural” but 99% of our customers stack them with our sides and gravy.
Our “Chopped” Champion Chef, Chef Joe Youkhan has created this carefully crafted range of sides and sauces to accompany all of our pies.
Every day in-store we help customers choose their sides and stacks by telling them our favorites and the best selling combinations, but in reality, we want you to go with your gut. We offer every customer the opportunity to tastes our sides and gravy before they buy.
