Hororata locals are passionate about their Pie. When the Pub was damaged in the September 2010 earthquakes no one wanted to see the iconic pie become just a memory. Fortunately for Canterbury, Mrs. Hutton’s legendary Hororata Pie recipe was acquired by locals and in an act of true philanthropy, they have since given this to the Hororata Community Trust as custodian of the taonga to benefit the community.
The Hororata Pie has been feeding local legends for years, whether it is after ski, on the farm, in a tractor or at one of Hororata’s famous events. It’s not just the memories the Pie invokes it’s the taste and quality ingredient’s that ensures the legends status remains.
The legend lives on with the Hororata Pie available locally at GAS Hororata, Glentunnel Store and now, the Hororata Community Trust is excited to announce that for the first time the Hororata Pie is available outside Hororata.
Made Espresso Bar Cashel Street, Stat Espresso at Forte Health and the Kookery Nook Bakery in Papanui have stepped up, they are supporting local and playing it forward offering the Hororata Pie as part of their menu.
It simple, ‘eat to donate’ to the Hororata community. Keep it local, support these cafés who are supporting our community.
The Hororata Community Trust is calling other cafes to join the Hororata Pie pay it forward movement.
The legend lives on!
