Who Ate All the Pies?

Television (Full Length) – 2002

The meat pie is a Kiwi institution, and this Gibson Group documentary treats it as such — diving deep into how the delicacy has impacted New Zealand's culture, economy and cholesterol. Presenter Jon Bridges (of Ice TV fame) travels across the country, visiting a variety of pie makers  from the handcrafted (Connelly Cottage Cafe), to the mass-produced (Big Ben Pies), and the culturally controversial (Hāngī Pies). Bridges deftly juggles both the big personalities and camera-shy figures of the pie world, and also reveals fascinating information on how the pie affects the country's finances and health. 

The humble New Zealand pie contributes over 140 million dollars a year to the economy.
