Bunnarith Sao and Navy Keo, owners of Dairy Flat Bakery, plan to give their prize money ($1000 for a Gold award and $7500 for a Supreme Award) to Hibiscus Hospice, if they create a winning pie for this year’s NZ Bakels Supreme Pie Awards.
Last year the company won two gold awards and this time around they will compete for the Supreme award.
Bunnarith and Navy want to create a restaurant-flavour pie and they’re hoping a recipe they are using from a cookbook Bunnarith bought from a Hospice shop for 50 cents holds the key.
“If it wins gold I will donate the prize money back to hospice as a thank you,” he says.
Pies will be judged on July 26 and the winners announced on July 31.
