Off to Melbourne for the Official Great Aussie Pie Comp

What a week...I turned 40! Just about managed a cake with the kids but the celebrations had to be put on hold. I have been flat out cooking and baking as today I am off to Melbourne to the Fine Food Australia show to deliver my competition pies for the Official Great Aussie Pie Competition. Big thanks to my mate James Partington of Bakedby138 who is manning the Frenchs Forest Organic Food Market for me today. Cheers dude.

We're jammin'

Yesterday I experimented with a bit of Jamaican spice courtesy of Jamtown Manly Beach. The result a Jamtown Jerk Chicken Pie. Jamaican spice-marinated chicken, roasted sweet potato, smoked garlic, white onion cream and lime marinated beans with a thyme and basting sauce top. Does it work, well I think so...but you can try for your self as it will be on offer at Manly Markets today.
