Maketu Pies, made in the Bay of Plenty, and distributed to fine food outlets, for you to enjoy.
Available in a wide variety of flavours, there's a pie for everyone.
I wasn't really sure about this pie from the moment I saw it. Seafood is one thing, in my opinion, that has only a limited application to pastries.
The pastry came out really tastily. A nice level of flakiness without falling apart. Another high point of the pie was the sauce. There seemed to be a slight spicy taste, which was appealing. By the time I had heated the pie to a temperature I was happy with, the mussels were tough and it made the thing taste awful.
Not a pie flavour I will be going to great lengths to purchase again.
I found this pie to be quite nice despite not being the world's biggest mussel fan. I was really nicely flavoured, and although I found the mussels to be a little tough for my liking they were at least chopped into bite sized pieces - that helps! My favourite parts were the pastry and the sauce.
