Gin Gin Bakery wins 11 awards for pies and pasties

AWARD WINNERS: Keisha and Maree Baker from the Gin Gin Bakery.

The family-owned and operated Gin Gin Bakery has won a swag of awards at Australia’s Best Pie and Pastie Competition with 11 of their delicious baked goods taking out a spot in the national contest.

From cheese and bacon to curry, mushroom and the delicious meat and veggie pastie, flavours of every variety from the local bakery have been showcased at the recent awards.

Maree Baker took over the business with her daughter and three sons in 2019 and said creating tasty savoury treats was their specialty.

“The boys all work out the back in the kitchen and are the reason for our delicious products,” she said.

“They will often tweak the recipes to create something extra tasty and unique.

“I love coming in to the shop of a morning to find what they have made for our customers.”

Maree said it wasn't the first time the family had submitted their products to the national pie and pastie competition.

“Last year we won gold for our chicken pie,” she said.

“Due to COVID we only submitted four entries but this year we decided to really go all out with 11 entries – we were so surprised when we found out that each of them had won a place!

“Overall, we won six bronze and five silver for our range of pies and our meat and veggie pastie.”

Maree said while it was fantastic to again be recognised in a national competition for their delicious creations, it was Gin Gin Bakery customers who made the job worthwhile.

“Our customers are fantastic, they are the best part about what we do,” she said.

“They love all of our pies but the most popular ones would have to be the chicken, since we won gold last year, as well as cheese and bacon and mushy peas.

“When people find out we have mushy peas, they come flocking.”
