Keripies

 


One from our most recent lockdown. I decided one day I'd had enough of being inside and that I desperately needed some fresh air so I had a brief walk around town. Only shops that are classed as essential are usually allowed to stay open such as dairies, supermarkets, petrol stations, chemists etc. 

This one was taken outside a dairy with signs advertising "fresh milk" and "Keripies". A dairy for us kiwis is like a 7/11 or a corner shop and pies are a big thing here because the bakers can put so many fillings inside, my favourites are mussel or seafood pies.

This is for Tom's post for things beginning with "K" and Weekend Reflections.

A seafood pie sounds good, I love fish.

I'd avoid seafood, but I imagine there would be something to my liking.

A seafood pie sounds good to me. I would stand in line to try one.

...a seafood pie is something that I have never had. Today we had fresh peach pie.

I've never tried a seafood pie, but I love seafood so why not? Happy Saturday!

How odd that I never came across Keripies in NZ. I'm not sure about mussels in a pie, though, but I'll try anything once.
We did a lot of town walking during our lockdowns.

Mmm a Keripie. They sound wonderful. And must taste even better of course.

Not sure about seafood and pastry but would be willing to be converted.

Pies. F is planning a holiday in Metsovo (Greece). Some local protagonists maintain that Metsovo has the best pies in Greece. Coming from NZ F sets the bar for a good pie very high. Remarkably (given where NZ piemaking probably came from) she didn't think you could get a really decent takeaway pie in most parts of England. Kiwi pies are outstanding, and really hit the spot where fast food is concerned. Does anyone reading your blog remember pie-carts?
(and while not a seafood fan, would eat a seafood pie if it had mashed spuds on top)

I would like fish pie, I made clam rolls for lunch today. I am thinking your fish pie is sort of like chicken pot pie. Here in Texas we have fish taco for us to eat. The restaurant that we go to having these makes them very juicy, I ask for mine to have the "sauce" on the side. Your quick stop place reminds me of the one we found in Devonport, is it a chain?

Pies with seafood inside? It sounds rather good actually.
