NZ Supreme Pie Award Winner 2023

Patrick’s Pies takes out the 25th Bakels Supreme Pie Award

Tuesday 01 Aug

He’s done it again! Congratulations to Patrick Lam of Bethlehem Town Centre’s Patrick’s Pies Gold Star Bakery for winning the 25th Bakels Supreme Pie Award for 2023. This marks an incredible 8th Supreme Pie Award for Patrick, making him the most-awarded pie maker in NZ. With 500 bakeries competing and over 4000 pies entered, it’s an amazing achievement once again.

The winning entry this year was an all-new pie! Bakels NZ managing director Brent Kersel said Patrick’s entry surprised the judges with the “perfect Roast Duck, Onion and Mushroom entry in the Gourmet Meat category. Each time Patrick has won there have been a different set of judges judging the category. It just goes to show that if you present a stunning pie that ticks all the boxes and outshines every other pie, the judges are going to choose it.” Judges also commented on the ‘flying duck’ decoration on the top of the pie.

Having tasted it ourselves, it’s no surprise the judges decided to honor Patrick once more. Truly, it’s pie-fection!

But that’s not all! Patrick’s Pies earned more awards on the night, catering to every taste. Here are this year’s medal-winning entries:

🥇 GOLD – Vegetarian Category: Stir Fry Vegetable Pie

🥈 SILVER – Steak & Gravy Category

🥇 GOLD – Gourmet Meat Category & SUPREME PIE AWARD WINNER: Roast Duck, Onion & Mushrooms

🥇 GOLD – Chicken & Vegetable Category
