Pie Time.

Since being diagnosed with Coeliacs one of the things I have missed is a good pie.

However this may change soon as I have found the web site for the Great Aussie pie comp, and one of their categories is for Gluten Free Pies

I have known about King Valley Fine Foods for a while, and while Wangaratta is a bit of a distance from Canberra, I have always detoured into the town with an esky on my trip to Melbourne. Now I have a few other places to make a detour to.

The main winner for 2015 is Beefys Pies, from Kunda Park, Queensland for their Steak pies, However, the rest of the winners for 2015 are:
