Eat Humble Pie co-owner Mike Burke and regular customer
Cheryl Ladds prepare to tuck into this year's first batch of
Christmas dinner pies, fresh from his bakery, on Sunday.
The meal in a pie consists of a light golden pastry filled
with roast turkey, roast vegetables, stuffing and cranberry
Mr Burke, who sells from a kiosk in Camp St, said the 2013
version was bigger and better than ever after his invention
sold like hot cakes last Christmas.
Mr Burke said he was inspired to a Yuletide version of New
Zealand's unofficial national dish to cater for Queenstown's
many tradespeople, hospitality and tourism staff members, who
are working hard during the peak summer season but who still
want to enjoy a piece of Christmas tradition ''on the go''.
