Aussies experimented with various ingredients to craft their unique version of the classic dish based on British meat pies. The origins of the first meat pie remain unclear, but Australia's adoration for it surged in the 1800s, solidifying its status as a staple meal in the 1900s. However, we do know the origins of the first commercial Australian meat pie. It was produced in 1947 by L. T. McClure in a small bakery in Bendigo.
Yes! We use a proprietary blend of yeast extracts and spices (rather than meat products) to create a rich flavor that is perfect for seasoning all types of savory food. The seasonings are not as salty as pure salt, so use a bit more seasoning than you would salt. The result is a much more robust flavor than salt alone can deliver.
