Mountain High Pies wins triple Awards at The Great Aussie Pie Competition!
This definitive pie competition is held once a year in conjunction with the Fine Food Expo which is Australia’s number one Hospitality Industry Expo. The competition is open to any commercial pie manufacturer in the country which includes bakeries, cafes and restaurants. Hundreds of Business entries come in from every corner of Australia including Tassie every year.
There are two major prizes. The best traditional beef pie and the best gourmet pie. The former is the most coveted but the gourmet category is the most contested. In the gourmet category there are twelve sub-categories e.g beef, poultry, game, seafood, brekky etc. The winner of each category is then eligible to take out the best gourmet pie trophy. This year Mountain High Pies won the best brekky pie category which then went on to win Australia’s best gourmet pie. This year was also the launch of a new award which is the John Ross most innovative pie award which Mountain High Pies also won with the same entry – our big brekky pie. To win 3 awards with one pie says alot for the Brekke Pie from Mountain High Pies!
So what makes this pie so awesome? The pie itself has been made on the premises for a couple of years now. It’s a pastry case filled with sausages, home made baked beans, chorizo, mashed potato and bacon. The pie is then baked and when it comes out of the oven, a soft poached egg is placed on top and is covered with hollandaise sauce. YUM! Half a kilo of happiness or 515g to be exact. This brekkie pie was an idea that the creative crew at Mountain High Pies came up with and evolved themselves, it was not something they had seen elsewhere and adapted – and that was reflected in the overwhelming response from the judges, particularly in taking out the new award for innovation.
It’s not for everyone (veggo’s and small eaters) but it is original and certainly gets people talking. If you feel that you are up for the challenge of eating a triple award winning pie – then come on into Mountain High Pies at Wentworth Falls and give it a go! You will not be disappointed, and certainly not hungry for a while after either!
