Broomfields pies are handcrafted on Sydney’s Northern Beaches by Ryan Broomfield. Ryan’s all-butter pastry pies are filled with the finest local ingredients; and combine the iconic flavours of Australia with those of his British roots. Ryan learnt the art of pie making from his brother Neil, Britain’s most awarded pie maker and the 2015 Supreme Pie Champion. Ryan has nurtured Neil’s award winning recipes and given them an Australian twist under the family name of Broomfields. Mrs Broomfield (Ryan’s mum) is Scottish, hence the Scotch pie shape.
Broomfields prides itself on using the finest ingredients from local producers such as Freshwater Smokehouse Irish Heritage black pudding; ale from Northern Beaches brewing company, Nomad and Jamtown Manly Beach’s secret jerk marinade. Ryan also uses the great discoveries he finds from his fellow market stall holders including Prickle Hill Farm sugar plums and Diemen’s hot sauce. Some ingredients are imported like Lancashire Cheese but the Bovril in his beef and onion pie, Ryan picks up from Harbord Growers Market.
