The Story of A Murrays Pie
There are a few things that will unite the people of Perth and generate an unshakable solidarity of minds and souls. One of these is our collective love of a Murrays Pie.
A wee middser at 11am - have a Murrays Pie. Need a quick and tasty mid-week tea - Murrays Pies, beans and chips. Hangover that would kill a horse - Murrays Pies will sort you right out! Man, woman and child, we have all wrapped ourselves up in the comfort of a Murrays pie and felt instantly better for scoffing it.
Linda Hill is the woman leading the charge, a fourth generation baker who learned her craft from her Dad. It was this wonderful man (who many of you will remember) that first created the Murrays Pies secret recipe way back in the sixties and it hasn't changed since.
Today, the team of six bakers at Murrays start their mornings at 1am to ensure those of us who like a pie for breakfast are certain to be satisfied. Everything is still crafted by hand, attention paid to each little detail. And of course, as famous as the pies are, our lives wouldn't be complete without the pineapple cakes, bridies and double biscuits that come fresh out of the South Street ovens each and every day.
Linda is a long time supporter of a #PerthLoveFest and has been buying local for way before we even coined the phrase! Your Murrays Pie is stuffed with only the very best meat from DG Lindsay and son. And yes, Beaton is a fan!
Murrays are current World Scotch Pie Champions and they are all set to defend their title for 2016! Judging day has past and results will be announced in January.
Pop in to the shop on South Street where you will find the friendly shop staff ready and waiting to serve you up your Murrays goodies (and do that mental arithmetic thing in their heads that's always quicker than the till!)
