From May 1 to July 23, Federation University TAFE are proud to present the battle to be crowned Ballarat’s Best Pie, as Plate Up Ballarat joins Visit Victoria and the Western Bulldogs to determine a winner from twenty of the city’s famed restaurants and cafes.
With a focus on local produce, each venue’s pie must feature three local ingredients, and must be true to type and served as a plated meal. Licensed venues will also pair their pie with a locally brewed beer or cider from Red Duck Brewery, Cubby Haus Brewing, Athletic Club Brewery or 321 Cider.
Anyone can vote for their favourite pie by selecting it on our website, and sharing their pics on Instagram using the hashtags #pieballarat #plateupballaratpie #fedunitafe #wandervictoria #thecourier as well as #(venuename)pie and #beername (if applicable).
The people’s choice winner will be declared at the Western Bulldogs v Port Adelaide match on Sunday July 29.
In addition to the People’s Choice for Best Pie, all pies will vie for the Critic’s Choice Best Pie with a team of judges. The critic’s choice will be announced on 5 June.
