Each week we feature a mystery "Pie of the week". These unique single portion pies are available from our bakery, our market stalls and online for home delivery. If you enjoy variety in your meals, then the mystery pie is for you!
** This option is not a good idea for those with dietary limitations or needs, as the ingredients change from week to week. We don't answer phone or email questions on these secret specialty gourmet pies!
We use no colourings or artificial flavourings in our pies. We only use fresh, local meat and vegetables slow-cooked with fresh herbs and spices. All products, including pastry, are made by hand from scratch in our Lyttelton Bakery.
Delivery will be on Thursday afternoon of the week following your order being placed (orders close at midnight Sunday each week).
We will deliver within the Christchurch city limits, other areas may be possible, by arrangement.
Deliveries can be made to private households or workplaces (ground floor or Reception only).
Pies will be delivered chilled from our bakery – if you won't be home to receive your order directly, you will need to provide a Chilli-Bin or Esky with minimum internal measurements of: 24cm wide x 35cm long x 15cm high.
Use by Date:
This is 8 days from date of delivery.
At all times please keep your pies refrigerated or frozen. We actually recommend you only keep pies in the refrigerator that are going to be eaten immediately. Please freeze the balance. This is not a food safety warning – it’s a food freshness recommendation. The true flavour will dissipate over time, in a refrigerator. Pies can stay frozen for up to a year.
Times depend on the heating speed of your oven and if in fan bake mode. We recommend heating the pies in a preheated oven 150-180 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. Experiment a little to find the perfect setting for your oven. (Add another 20 minutes if heating a frozen pie.)
We do not recommend heating pies in your microwave. The pastry becomes soggy and loses its texture. It is OK, though, to microwave a frozen pie for 1-1.5 minutes before heating in the oven. Then heat in the oven for the 10-15 minute period.
