Eating all the pies and tasting their wine matches

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:42 pm on 12 October 2020

Jesse had a tough job on Friday in Marlborough, tasting 47 pies and their proposed wine matches.

He was the judge of the fourth annual Great Burleigh Pie Challenge, where the winner gets a trophy and bragging rights, as well as raising money for the local foodbank.

One of the organisers, Belinda Jackson, reminisces with Jesse about pairing wine with pies and who took out the supreme award.
