Australian pie-makers, Banjo’s Bakery Cafe is on the hunt for Australia’s third annual Pie Minister, commencing its nation-wide search today, May 31.
The mouth-watering campaign, open until June 13, calls on pie lovers across the country to guess Banjo’s next Signature Pie flavour.
As part of the national competition, one lucky pie-enthusiast who correctly guesses the flavour will win a year’s worth of free pies, alongside enviable bragging rights.
The public is encouraged to enter via Banjo’s website with the new Signature Pie flavour announced on Wednesday, June 14.
Renowned for its unique twists on traditional classics, including the 2022 Spag Bol Pie and the 2021 Lasagna Pie, amongst its Double Cheeseburger, Chicken Parmigiana and Tasmanian Scallop Pie, the 2023 Signature Pie will offer a mouth-watering tasty treat.
Those hoping to win the ultimate “Aussie dream” – a year’s worth of free pies and the title of Australia’s 2023 Pie Minister – here is a hint: the pie is inspired by an internationally loved classic.
Banjo’s Bakery Cafe Chief Executive Officer Jessica Saxby is calling on participants to think outside of the box when guessing Banjo’s secretive spin on a humble classic.
“Banjo’s Bakery Cafe has seen Australia’s appetite for classic flavours evolve, encouraging our baking experts to push the boundaries with our pastries, challenging the status-quo of the humble meat pie,” said Ms Saxby.
“Our team loved seeing Australia’s fun, flavour-fuelled guesses from the 2021 and 2022 Pie Minister competitions, so we’re excited to bring back the opportunity to guess our Signature Pie flavour for the third year running.
“The highly sought after title of the 2023 Pie Minister will see one lucky winner crowned a true pie extraordinaire, receiving a free pie each and every day for twelve months,” she said.
