Mince and cheese pie back at top spot

10:04 am on 24 July 2013

The winning pie, created by David Liem from Greenland Bakery and Cafe in Botany, ended a two-year winning streak for fruit pies.

David Liem's creation beat 633 other mince and cheese pies and 682 steak and cheese pies to take out the supreme award.

He says he feels lucky to be the supreme pie-award winner and he will need to get more staff to help him, because now he's going to be very busy.

One of the judges, Bakels NZ executive chairman Duncan Loney, says the winning pie looked beautiful and had a flavour balance to almost dream about.

This year 4522 pies were entered in the competition.
