You may be wondering, is this Community News or a post that should sit on the Chef's Table? Here in New Zealand the meat pie is an important part of our culture and, yes, sometimes they're made by a chef but this particular pie comes to us from the Fairlie Bakehouse.
Introducing a pie that uses Mountain River Venison! Simply delicious.
With an overall rating of 4.5 stars on Trip Advisor (from 544 reviews), it's easy to see why the Fairlie Bakehouse is a popular destination for food lovers. They are usually very crowded as some bus tours make a point of stopping by.
And that's exactly what we did, when some of our distinguished guests were here for the Field Day in February! Take a look:
Next time you're travelling to the South Island of New Zealand, make sure you add Fairlie to your list of places to visit. It's about half way between Christchurch and Wanaka, among some of the most stunning scenery you'll see, and is definitely worth making a slight detour to taste this delicious goodness.
Here's what the pie looks like up close:
