Pie time: Mrs Denton’s

Humans have been eating pies since the days of the ancient Greeks, and you can bet your bottom dollar they’ve been arguing about who makes the best pie since then as well.

Ancient Greek, Epicurious, philosophised about a happy life lived well.

No doubt if he’d been able to visit Mrs Denton’s Takeaway Café and Delicatessen, he would have used it as a prime example in his teachings.

Owner Delwyn bakes beautiful pies on site with seafood flavours a forte. There is: Chatham Island Blue Cod, Leek, and Parsley, Scallop, Seafood Chowder Pie, and Cream Paua Pie. Each one is a little gem celebrating fresh New Zealand produce. Steak and Kidney, Lambs Fry and Bacon, Chicken, Asparagus, and Cream Cheese, plus traditional options like Mince and Cheese are also made fresh.

“I specialise in small batch, hand-crafted gourmet pies,” says Delwyn, “and I’ve introduced cabinet keto/gluten-free options such as veggie frittata and sausage rolls. My take home and heat cottage pie is gluten free also.” Sweet treats include home-made apple strudel, custard squares, and red velvet cake.

From November Delwyn bakes Christmas cakes, tarts, and truffles. Mrs Denton’s is open six days, Monday to Friday 8.30am – 2.30pm, and Saturday 9am – 2pm.
