Pies. It’s a subject that can potentially divide the nation. Soft pastry or crispy? Chunky meat or smooth consistency? Plain beef or tandoori eggplant? So where’s Canberra’s best pie?
Although I haven’t been out there in a while, I think the pies from Charnwood Bakery would definitely be amongst the best. They have a great crispy lid, tasty beef filling with just enough gravy, and a firm but not too solid base.
Send in your recommendations, and I’ll organise a team of pie tasters (maybe once Mat Dunning is back in the country) to rate them and award Canberra’s best pie.
