Picture Postcards: New Zealand pie

May 30, 2011 Comments disabled , , , ,

If our survey is anything to go by, food is a popular topic so, even though June doesn’t technically start for another couple of days, we thought we’d kick in early on Picture Postcards to see what everyone is eating for lunch. Here is my contribution from New Zealand.

In some places, such as in North America, the word ‘pie’ conjures up ideas of sweet desserts. Here in New Zealand a pie is almost always savoury. They come filled with meat, fish or veggies and are quite popular for a stay-at-home dinner, or an on-the-run lunch.

What do you eat for lunch in your country?
