Where To Get Yourself An Award-Winning Pie In The Highlands

How exciting! The winners of this year’s Pie Time competition have been announced and while well-known Southern Highlands bakeries Heatherbrae’s, Stones Patisserie and Gumnut Patisserie dominated most categories - congrats guys!! - it was awesome to see Meals on Wheels and The Disability Trust get a nod. And we are lovin’ that Moonacres took out the Vegetarian category with The Big Potato Pie – talk about working to your strengths (and your potatoes!).

And remember, all these pies – including the Community / Home Baker categories – will be available for tasting at Pie FEST at Bong Bong Racecourse 29-30 June. 

Congrats to everyone! And thank you from the bottom of our tummies……!
