Sebastian Nedziak was beaming when he told me that his Gum Tree Pies had won eleven medals at the 2011 Great Aussie Meat Pie Competition just recently: four gold medals and seven silver medals!
He and wife, Melinda, hand make their gourmet pies at Yackandandah using locally sourced, best quality vegetables, rump steak, chicken breasts and Brown Brothers wine.
The award-winning pies are really, really good and the range includes steak and red wine; lamb and mint jelly; creamy cauliflower; curry pumpkin; and chicken and vegetables, among many others. Pick up your pies hot and ready to eat, or take home freshly made pies ready to either bake or freeze.
You will find Gum Tree Pies at the Capital Region Farmer’s Market and Southside Farmer’s Market in Canberra; Yackandandah Lions Club Market; and various other markets. For more information, visit the Gum Tree Pies web site.
