The best pie in New Zealand is…

Taupo's Fast & Fresh Bakery has been crowned bakers of the country’s best pie at the 2017 Bakels Supreme Pie Awards.

The bakery’s venson, bacon, mushroom and cheese pie beat out more than 5695 pies from right across New Zealand, with celebrity judge Sean Connolly describing it as “amazing”.

“The flavour and texture was exemplary – it was super moist and tender - he made a great pie filling,” said the Sydney based celebrity chef of The Grill and Gusto.

The number keep going up every year with the key categories of mince and cheese and steak and cheese pies attracting over 471 entries in each category alone.

The top winner in the fruit pies category was the blueberry, apricot and apple pie from Albany's Dairy Flat Bakery and was another pie that Sean said he would "definitely stop off for".
