The team at Kyneton's Country Cob Bakery has won the title of Australia's Best Pie for the second year in a row.
Brothers Chan and Ryan Khun, who migrated from Cambodia 15 and eight years ago respectively, beat out 344 other bakeries to take home the Baking Association of Australia award.
Their caramelised pork and pepper pie won the best pie overall while their seafood curry pie won best seafood pie. They also collected 12 gold and 10 silver medals at the competition.
Ryan said it was very surprising to take home the award for the second year in a row.
"This year there was more competition," he said. "Compared to last year there was another 50 or 60 bakeries entered in the competition and there were 1700 pies to judge."
The pies are judged on how uniform they are - shape, colour, aroma - as well as being judged on the taste and flavour of the filling.
Each category winner then competed against each other for the title of best pie.
"We have been playing with these recipes for two or three months and developed eight new flavours (of pies)," Ryan said.
Ryan and Chan opened Country Cob Bakery in 2016 after selling their original bakery in Doncaster.
"When we sold (the Doncaster) one, we took a small break," Ryan said. "Then we decided to open another with less of a focus on bread because we wanted less early starts.
"It took three months to get (set up in Kyneton). The first time we visited we thought it was good town with friendly faces and that made us think 'this is the one'."
