Quality - “the finest Irish ingredients and using suppliers we know and trust” - and real homemade flavour is the secret of Una Martin’s success with her delicious pies
A change of direction following the onset of recession saw Una Martin’s anticipated future in urban planning morph itself into a life producing good food. And - much to her own surprise it seems - the delicious pies that she started off baking in modest quantities to sell at farmers’ markets in 2011, very soon took the mainstream market by storm.
The range of products is not huge - eight pie varieties of which five are chicken (try the yummy one with Gubbeen chorizo and red pepper), one beef (steak & Murphys, of course) and two vegetarian - but each one has a loyal following.
Quality - “the finest Irish ingredients and using suppliers we know and trust” - and real homemade flavour is the secret of her success. While they’re still sold at markets (Mahon Point, Douglas and Midleton), you’ll also find them in selected cafes and a growing number of retail outlets in Munster.
