2014 Diocesan School Pie Awards

While the Bakels NZ Supreme Pie Awards may be all over for another year - the spirit and challenge of baking award winning pies lives on at Diocesan School.

As part of level 1 NCEA, students completed an extensive portfolio that demonstrated an impressive understanding of flavours and ingredients. They then set about creating from the background work an award winning pie.

The pie flavours included: Chicken with Wholegrain Mustard and Kumara, Chicken Carbonara, Lamb and Rosemary, Beef with Ale, Lemon Chicken, Chicken and Leek and variations on the always popular Mince and Cheese. The winner was a Country Chicken Pie - chicken, shallots, garlic, mustard and sour cream.

The pies were judged using Pie Award criteria. The judges were really impressed that in most cases the recipes were developed from scratch and the pastry was prepared with skill and understanding.
