THE PIE COMPETITION.
From 1st May - 23rd of July, Federation University TAFE are proud to present the battle to be crowned Ballarat’s best pie, as Plate Up Ballarat joins Visit Victoria and the Western Bulldogs to determine a winner from twenty of the city’s famed restaurants and cafes.
With a focus on local produce, each venue's pie must feature three local ingredients, and must be true to type and served as a plated meal. Licensed venues will also pair their pie with a locally brewed beer or cider from Red Duck Brewery, Cubby Haus Brewing, Athletic Club Brewery or 321 Cider.
Don’t forget to vote for your favourite pie by selecting it below, and share your pics on Instagram using the hashtags #pieballarat #plateupballaratpie #fedunitafe #wandervictoria #thecourier as well as #(venuename)pie and #beername (if applicable).
In addition to the People’s Choice Best Pie (voted by you), all pies will vie for the Critic’s Choice Best Pie with a team of judges headed by food writer Richard Cornish and local culinary genius Peter Ford blind tasting, testing and rating each pie, including the best entrant from the apprentices at Federation University TAFE.
The winner will be declared at the Western Bulldogs v Port Adelaide match on Sunday 29 July.
