Canterbury beef, slow-cooked with seared onions, rich beef stock, red wine, tomato paste, bay leaves, thyme, a little garlic and...a couple of secret ingredients, all with with caramelised balsamic onions, my personal favourite.
But it`s not just about the recipe, it`s taking the time to do it right. Steak, red wine, caramelised balsamic onions, buttery pastry...good as it gets and then some!
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.

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.
