We've traveled in many places around the world and they are
called by many names. Calzones, Pasties, Empanadas, Pot Pies,
etc. But in New Zealand and Australia, they are just plain "pies".

most are yummy...my favorite is steak and cheese. It seems like
you can't get a bad pie in Australia or NZ though and the best ones
are at out of the way places where you would never think you could
get a gourmet meal.
We ran across a little place while driving called Brighton's Best
Bakehouse, just north of Hobart and the Pies there were phenomenal.
The place was busy even in the middle of the afternoon.
Plus, the people were really friendly. It made the pies taste even
