Most pies can trace their roots back to England or Europe. Our story also begins with English colonists coming to South Africa. As these colonists settled down in Southern Africa, they brought with them traditional recipes. This however is not the only influence that gave us the product we enjoy today. Other influences were Indentured Indian laborers, which brought with them spices and recipes two hundred years ago (1820). Also influencing the pie was the native South African spices and flavors. The fertile land provided a superb quality of wheat and vegetables. The livestock was of a very high quality. A fusion of these cultures, flavors and ingredients resulted in the delicious pie you enjoy today. Many types of pies are now available, and we continue to work on more flavors from what would have been a basic meat or vegetable pie. Our family here at Pie Boss bring you these flavors produced right here in the United States. We strive to produce a superior product using high quality ingredients. We thank you for your patronage and can't wait to have you come in and visit Pie Boss!
