Friends like Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha are completely different from each other, but like the best pie ingredients, when they come together, they can conquer anything. We’ve found Hobart’s top five pies that most closely resemble these strong and sexy Sex and the City characters.
Charlotte – Lamb, Red Wine and Rosemary Pie
Classy without being snobby, rich without being garish, lamb and rosemary paired with red wine is a classic for good reason. Daci & Daci work painstakingly hard to make this pie seem simply flawless. This is a pie that’s confident in itself. The lamb, red wine and rosemary combo knows what type of china and flatwear it should be eaten with and there are no compromises or substitutes.
“At Daci & Daci, their European style bakery uses, French, Spanish, and Eastern European recipes. Baked fresh on the premises, you will find an extensive range of, breads, pastries, cakes, biscuits, etc. all to add to your shopping basket. A European style breakfast and lunch is served, Inside, or on a sunny deck over looking the harbor. Magic. We enjoyed lunch, Beef Bourgignonne pie with fresh salad. Fabulous. A Turkey and avocado Sandwich in thick crusty bread. Very tasty. Finishing with a Linzer slice and a fruit mince frangipane tart. Mouth watering.” –Trev Scott
Samantha – Scallop and Wakame Pie
Whole scallops are used in these scallop and wakame pies, and the bakers at Jackman & McRoss sure know how to treat this saltwater clam with respect. It takes a skilled hand to understand the complexities of using scallop in a pie and to know what flavours make it sing so that the pie-eating experience becomes one of ecstasy. With years of practice, these bakers have definitely succeeded in producing one orgasmic pie.
“Bread to die for, do yourself a favour, try the sourdough.” – Surly Dave
Carrie – Terracotta Baked Apple and Blueberry Frangipane pie
Just like Carrie’s fashion sense, the terracotta baked apple and blueberry frangipane pie at the Stockman’s Restaurant in the Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel combines lower end vintage style with higher end ingredients to form an intriguing, chic, and feminine pie. This is not what you’d expect from an apple pie. It dances with the traditional, but it goes off in its own direction, finding independence from what society tells it an apple pie should be.
“Great food and quaint little bar.” – Meagsi
Miranda – Cauliflower Cheese Pie
There’s something practical and direct about the cauliflower cheese pie at Banjo’s Bakery Café. Cauliflower isn’t exactly everyone’s favourite vegetable, and it doesn’t try to be, but with some cheese sauce and a crisp yet flaky pie shell, the cauliflower shines. It’s a unique kind of pie, a little misunderstood, but it’s an efficient pie that knows how to get the job done.
Aiden Shaw – Hot Apple Pie & Salted Caramel Sauce
Imagine a hot apple pie with a sexy salted caramel sauce; this is the pie you need. It’s a bit run-of-the-mill, a little traditional, but it’s the best pie for you, particularly when so many other pies (or one pie in particular) don’t treat you the way you deserve to be treated. This pie is sweet, comforting, and perfect for you, why on earth would you want to go with any other pie?
