Ode To The Fleece. The Golden One.

Ever since we started working on the Building Now Known as The Daily Pie, many travellers passing through our country village have pulled in and asked as to whether we have any remnants of the Golden Fleece. Just for the record - we had an old sign that mentioned the Golden Fleece (which we used to put the cans of paint on), but other than that - nothing with the signature bright yellow and blue logo.

And so it was, that we were quite thrilled to eyeball this collection of Golden Fleece products from days gone by now housed in the Melbourne Museum. 

We get a lot of magpies hanging around the Pie Shop, hoping for morsels and attempting to swoop any unsuspecting soul just for pleasure, so to turn around and see this - directly opposite the Golden Fleece display put us in the Twilight Zone.

An Old Pie Warmer

On a trip to Melbourne, and looking around the Melbourne Museum, we found this exhibit: 

Can you believe this is a 1940's pie warmer??  I'm so glad that pie-warming is easier nowadays. Elizabeth Cohen must have worked very hard to keep her pies nice and warm.....

What's Baking?

Nothing, actually.

Nothing at the moment, that is.

For the whole month of February, The Daily Pie Cafe will be closed for renovations and refurbishment with a little much-needed annual leave thrown in the mix.  We will reopen on the 4th March, but hope to keep you updated on our progress in the meantime.

We look forward to seeing you and serving you soon!

With love from Pie-Dom!
