In new Zealand a detour to the little town of (need to remember the name!) is the best place to enjoy the incredibly tasty pastries.

In Australia, (I can’t remember what the bakery was called but I remember many visits) a drunken night out would not have been complete without a visit to the 23 hour pie shop in Byron Bay. It was on the main street and as with most pie shops in Australia and New Zealand the array of different pies available was incredible, from spaghetti bolognese to steak egg and cheese.

Don’t miss this national dish, I know i do now I’m not there
