We create our handcrafted pies with both traditional and gourmet recipes. What do they all have in common? Other than all being 100% awesome - they have a flaky puff pastry top and a shortcrust bottom, which graciously holds the filling in. Hold your pie in one hand and eat on the go!
After 6 long years of deprivation from anything close to a true blue Australian meat pie (a sample of every Aussie’s diet), it became clear to Ryan that the only way to solve his problem was to start creating his own! (spoiler: he’s now known as the ‘Pie Lord’)
The revelation of creating Aussie Meat Pies in Canada happened on a crisp winter's day his way up the chair lift at Big White Ski Resort in Kelowna, BC. He noticed a perogies concession at the bottom of the run and thought “Why aren’t there any meat pies here?“
Four years later, after perfecting his Australian-born recipe, he developed the base for the Real Deal Australian Meat Pies. With a goal of offering a true-blue version of Aussie Meat Pies in Canada, to be as good as, if not better, than what he found in Australia.
Real Deal Pies are packed with heaps of filling - making it obvious which pie you're enjoying. For example, our steak cheese and bacon pies are overflowing with tender cubes of steak and rich gravy, riddled with bacon and oozing with hot, melting cheese.
You may ask - what makes them Australian?
We’re glad you asked! Our pies don’t contain space-filling veggies like potatoes, peas or carrots. They are brimming with tasty meat and a rich gravy that doesn’t run. Surrounded by shortcrust on the bottom and topped with flaky puff pastry on the top - they are the pinnacle of eat on-the-go foods!
