Patisserie course graduate wins best pie for the second year

A pie is as synonymous with Australian culture as the footy and beach. Now, Holmesglen graduate, and pie aficionado, Chan Khun is making his mark on the classic pastry.

For the second year running, Chan Khun has been crowned with the best pie in Australia. Taking home top spot in the 2019 Australia's Best Pie competition, for his caramelised pork and pepper pie.  

Following on his success in 2018, owner of Kyneton’s Country Cob Bakery, Chan and his team have won various awards, including the competition’s highest honour of Australia’s Best Pie. 

The leading hospitality professional was quick to reflect on his time in the classroom when observing the achievements.

Chan who graduated from Holmesglen with a Certificate III in patisserie, said “It’s often not what you cook, it’s how you cook. In class, what you learn are the principles of basic skills. You should strive to be the best. One of my teachers always said that if you want to be a baker, you’ve got to try to be the best one, not an average one.”
