The Pie Story The History to NZ Craft Pies New Zealander Tom Simpson started NZ Craft Pies after living in Sweden for 5 years and longing for a real pie. "Pies" in New Zealand is like "Pizza" to Italy, "Bratwurst" to Germany or "Paella" to Spain. He realised that the only way to fulfil his love of pies was to start making his own. The result is legendary, handmade pies proudly produced in Katrineholm, Sweden.
What are NZ Pies? New Zealand pies are characterised by generous amounts of flavoursome fillings, wrapped in a flaky “melt in your mouth” pastry. They are around the size of a very large hand and generally one pie is enough to satisfy most people.
How do you eat Pies? It really is a matter of choice - many will say just pick them up and eat them out of your hand - maybe with a paper wrapper to protect your hand from the heat. Others will tell you to put them on a plate and eat them with a knife and fork - it is a matter of taste, speed and whether you don't want to clean dishes. (See Photos below)
What is the best way to heat up Pies when they come straight out of the Freezer? Not only do the Pies taste great but one of the real benefits is that it is a fast and easy meal. Please note that Pies will be OK for a week in the fridge.
1. Microwave and Oven - after microwave on High for 2 ½ to 3 minutes place in the oven at 180 degrees (400 degrees) for 7 minutes. 2. Oven (Preferred Option) - It is recommended that you do NOT put the Pies or the Sausage Rolls from frozen into the over - Why? Because this dries them out. So we suggest you place them in the fridge overnight then in the oven at 180 degrees (400 degrees) for 20 - 25 minutes. For the mini (party) pies 12 minutes at 180 degrees. Obviously all these times and heats are dependant on the power of the microwave or whether the oven is fan forced or not. So they are a guide only and your own experiences will be the answer.
