By Tim Wilson They’re a culinary institution – both on and off the footy field. And they’re as dinky di as the flying Kangaroo. Meat pies are our hand-held national dish and, in WA, Mrs Mac’s are the high fliers. The Perth based pie-making company, which has been churning out mince in pastry and sausage rolls since the 1950s, was awarded a golden contract: as the one and only pie seller at Perth Stadium. Following the announcement of the exclusive deal by the State Government, The Bounce set out to put Mrs Mac’s pies to the test. After ordering a Mac’s pie from the local service station, we lined up some pie lovers to blind-taste the Mac’s meaty morsel compared to other pies sold on campus.

Perth Stadium is expected to open on January 21 next year.
