The Pie Life
A rolicking rollercoaster ride following the ups and downs of the first year in the life of a small food business (pies included)
Small business is a daydream of many – the idea attractive, the reality confronting – but the difference between having that dream and making it a reality is simply DOING IT. Don’t believe us? Just ask Aaron Donato and Scott Blomfield, whose life-long love of all things pie led to them setting up Pie Thief in Footscray in 2019. To two pie-obsessed individuals it looked like a no-brainer on paper. Pies = win, right? Fluffy flaky pastry, delicious saucy filling, all presented as a neat little takeaway package. What could possibly go wrong?
Turns out, a LOT. So strap yourselves in and get set for a rip-roaring roller coaster of a ride as the pair reveal their twisting, turning and downright delicious narrative that sees them from initial concept through to their current position atop the city’s podium of pastry-clad perfection. With awesome illustration from Matt Hobson and Jess Wilson and a selection of all-killer, no-filler recipes for some of the Thief’s best-loved pies from Steak & Cheese and Thai Green Curry through to the Lasagne Pie and Vegan Tofu Saag with Green Beans & Tofu this is a life in food unlike any other. But whether you’re a dreamer or a doer there’s really only one option here when it comes to this little book – get in, grab it with both hands, get messy, get happy… and get yours NOW.
