Hospice has eye on pie awards

Dairy Flat Bakery owners Bunnarith Sao and Navy Keo, have pledged to give their prize money of $7500 to Hibiscus Hospice, if they create a winning pie for this year’s NZ Bakels Supreme Pie Awards.

The pair used a recipe from a cookbook bought at a hospice shop for 50 cents to make the pie they entered in the competition (HM May 16). The pies were judged on July 26 and the winners announced on July 31.
