Over the past few weeks we have been talking pies; you have sampled, rated and voted on your favourites.
Now it's time to take it one bite further.
Let's encourage our local piemakers to get cooking and enter the Bakels New Zealand Supreme Pie Awards.
Thousands of bakers up and down the country are already slaving away over hot ovens, on the quest to craft the perfect pastry, construct the sturdiest bases and concoct the most inventive and tantalising fillings.
We know that Marlborough's piemakers have the right stuff.
Next time you pop into the bakery or deli for your favourite treat, drop a subtle hint.
Tell them to visit nzbakels.co.nz and click into Pie Awards for more details, or phone 0800 Pieline (0800 743 546).
Entries close June 27.
