NEWS 7 Millicent pastie praised Bakery celebrates as experts rank pastry among best THOSE who like the mouth watering taste of a pastie from Andy’s Bakery in Millicent, are in good company. Industry experts have placed the business in sixth place out of 250 entries in the recent Great Aussie Pastie Competition. It would come as no surprise to Millicent’s many pastie aficionados who adore the taste of the light pastry and the spicy blend of meat and vegetables. Andy’s Bakery owner Donald Tilley is delighted with the success of his product in the competition, which is held in Sydney each year by the Baking Association of Australia. He has acknowledged the efforts of his staff and pointed out the vegetables used in the product are sourced from Foster’s Foodland and the meat from Millicent IGA and Margaret Street Meats. Mr Tilley said the Millicent bakery faced tough odds to score a high placing as it had to mail its pasties to Sydney. “We are members of the Baking Association of Australia but it was the first time we have entered the awards,” Mr Tilley said. “We wanted to receive feedback from the judges for our various pie and pastie lines. “According to the judges, our pasties lost a few marks as the pastry was not yellow enough. “We are making plans to attend the 2015 awards in person.” Andy’s Bakery was also commended by the judges in the companion Australia’s Best Pie Competition with its plain pies and chunky pies meeting the bronze medal standard. For Mr Tilley, the awards are a highlight in his long career as a baker. It began as a teenager in 1982 when he started an apprenticeship with then Forem Bakery on Ridge Terrace. Davenport Street has been his workplace since 1988 when Andy Kramer founded a bakery and gave it his name. Mr Tilley became a partner in the business six years ago and, along with his wife Deborah, purchased it outright in 2013. Andy’s Bakery has a workforce of 15, baking each weekday and Saturday from midnight. Mr Tilley says he knows no other life and he happily works from 2am to 10am. Among his staff is Sarah Fabris who has just started the second year of her apprenticeship. Like her boss, she has no regrets about her career choice. “I have always been interested in working with food,” Ms Fabris said. The two competitions are supported by key industry allied traders and judged to industry standard criteria used and recognised nationally. According to the Baking Association of Australia, the ability to have an industry body conducting such prestigious competitions allows industry the valuable feedback and assistance to improve. It also gives customers the knowledge that they are buying quality endorsed pies and pasties.
