Ricks Artisan Pies & Sourdough

Huge thanks to Rick’s Artisan Pies & Sourdough for having me down today to do my review. Rick & his old man were absolute legends & so accommodating. Operating for over 2 years and employing 18 odd staff this place is a little gem. With a combined total of 58 odd years baking between, this father & son combo know their pies !!!!!! This shop is a Disneyland for pie lovers 🥧🥧🥧 with a huge variety of normal and gourmet delights. I didn’t sample just 1 🥧 but 🥧🥧🥧🥧 of these beauties

1. Angus Beef & Bearnaise
2. Creamy Pepper Steak & Mushroom
3. Gunpowder Lamb with Pineapple Salsa
4. Prawn & Snapper in a creamy garlic sauce

Just to clarify I didn’t eat all 🥧🥧🥧🥧 but sampled 1/2 of each pie and all 4 didn’t disappoint. This review will be based on all 🥧🥧🥧🥧 pies.

1. Value for money – excellent variety and pies priced from $6.90 onwards. Obviously, the gourmet pies where more expensive but well worth the price. These pies are a quality size 9/10
2. Meat Ratio – Chocker Blocker full of delicious ingredients. Couldn’t fit a single bit of meat in these pies 10/10
3. Meat Flavor – OMG !!!!! each 🥧 was simply OUTSTANDING !!!! Each 🥧 had its own flavor and all meats slow-cooked. Easily my favorite part of these 🥧🥧🥧🥧 10/10
4. Pastry – Couldn’t find a fault with all 🥧🥧🥧🥧 pies. The pastry was fluffy and the pie held together right to the last bite. 9.5/10
5. Temperature – Spot on !!!!!! These beauties are ready to smash straight away. A pie that’s too hot is like looking at Xmas presents under the tree and having to wait till Xmas day to open them. 9.5/10

Overall Rating 48/50

This shop is a must for any local, tourist or day-tripper to the Noosa area. This Bakery has so much variety that makes you want to come back again and again. Rick & the staff are very friendly and always coming up with new recipes and ideas for their 🥧. Will I be back? Hell yes !!!! Not sure my waistline will appreciate it but my stomach will…
