Savoury pies, the comfort food you've almost forgotten about

Never underestimate the allure of a just-baked pie.

Bourke Street Bakery's guide to making the perfect meat pie
One bite will remind you of the allure of a just-baked pie. The pastry might consist a sturdy shortcrust base with a puff pastry top like in Bourke Street Bakery's traditional meat pie; light and feathery as in the turmeric and ginger chicken fillo pie; or take the form or a free-form olive-oil pastry casing as used in our three-cheese pie recipe. Sometimes, pastry is left out altogether, as in our shepherd's pie recipes. Just keep the filling simple and homely, and you'll be rewarded with a good pie in no time.
