Chicken pot pie

Packed with hearty vegetables and succulent chunks of chicken, this chicken pot pie is sure to satisfy your comfort food cravings. It can be made ahead of time, making it an excellent choice for busy weeknights.

Grape and feta pie

The juicy sweetness of the caramelised grapes and the tangy salty flavor of the feta cheese come together to form a satisfyingly delicious savory/sweet pie.

Fish pie

This is no ordinary fish pie – a combination of smoked cod, salmon and prawn, with dill-laced bechamel sauce, topped with mashed potatoes and cheese. A perfect dish for a cozy night in or a special occasion.

Green curry pork pie

Indulge in a flavor of explosion with Thai green curry paste, slow-cooked pork, coconut cream and lime, wrapped in flaky light crisp short crust pastry.

Potato gem shepherd’s pie

Forget about cooking and mashing your potatoes. Here’s a clever way to turn potato gems into a crowd-winning dish, with plenty of vegetables and flavors. The best part? The gems stay crunchy on top.

Smokey trout pie and mash

This is a hearty smoked trout pie with plenty of herbs and flavors by SBS News’ Janice Petersen. Garnish the pies with Geraldton wax flowers and serve with Dutch cream potato mash.

Gramma pie

Gramma is a type of squash that greatly resembles butternut pumpkin, and either can be used to make this pie. More sweet than savory, serve with ice cream, cream or custard.

Lime mojito pie

This pie may require a bit of effort, but is definitely worth it. With a coconut rum-infused lime curd, this pie is an ode to tropical flavors. It packs a nice citrus punch and looks gorgeous on the table.

Peach, cardamom and vanilla pie

Enjoy the natural sweet flavor of fresh peaches as you sink your teeth into the flaky buttery crust. For a more textured filling, cut your peaches into chunks rather than slices.

Lemon myrtle meringue pie

Try this lemon meringue pie with a twist. Lemon myrtle has a slight eucalyptus or menthol flavor and pairs beautifully with lemon like in this curd. Knead ground wattleseed into the base for a more nutty toasty flavour.
