346 bakeries across the country entered 2031 pies and pasties in the Australia’s Best Pie and Pastie Competition. This year Rolling Pin takes the title from reigning champion Country Cob bakery (also from Victoria) who has taken out the top spot in the competition for the last three years.
The pie that took home the major trophy this year was Rolling Pin’s ‘Surf n’ Turf’ creation – their award-winning chunky beef filling is topped with prawns and a creamy garlic sauce.

Rolling Pin is no stranger to success, but that didn’t make the big win any less sweet, manager Nathan Williams toldThe Geelong Advertiser.
“We’ve probably won 400 awards over the journey, and this is the 11th individual pie or pastie that we sell that has won a national title,” he said.
“So we have very high expectations going into competitions now, but it certainly doesn’t take away from what we feel when we win one.
“It’s an amazing feeling, it creates a huge buzz around the shop — and even in town customers celebrate with us. We couldn’t be more excited.”
