A Piece of the Pie

The wafting smell of Quart Pot Bakehouse is a tease sensation and reminds us today of the joy of slow cooked regional food.

Last month, Quart Pot won a swag of awards at the Queensland Baking Industry Bakery Show, beating Brisbane’s leading patisseries, including first prize for their melt in your mouth Wagyu mushroom pie, and another for their scrumptious apple pie.

Reinforcing their baking prowess, Quart Pot also claimed first prize for their sour dough and ciabatta breads.

Accrediting their achievement to using local produce, business owner Gabrielle Schnitzerling said, “we are so lucky to have such a wonderful food industry right here on the Granite Belt.” And we have to agree.

When was the last time you indulged in a pie?
