Have you noticed that there’s no such thing as an ordinary, run-of-the-mill, average-beyond-imagination pie anymore? Or even a Quite Nice one?
Every pie shop or bakery you drive past features ‘world famous’, ‘legendary’ or ‘award-winning’ pies. I know this because on our drive down the coast to our holiday destination, we drove past at least three of these signs.
We even ate an ‘award-winning’ pie in Pambula, NSW. It was a very nice pie. But it didn’t come with a trophy or have a blue ribbon stuck to it, and I would be hard-pressed to pick it out of a pie line-up.
Just what makes a pie ‘world famous’ or even ‘legendary’? Who decides such things? Is there a ‘world famous’ list? Does word-of-mouth make it so? Or does it come down to the fact that nobody stops for a Quite Nice pie anymore?
Is there a world famous pie near you? Or even a Quite Nice one?[image: perhaps you’d prefer a Barbie-sized pie, like this one from VansdollTreasures/etsy]
