That is a particular specific type of pie. Lamb shanks by themselves are still quite common on menus, but I've never come across them in a pie.

Franz Josef is one of those places where what you see is very much what is available. It's not a place I would associate with fine dining.

Apart from that, I've never heard of lamb shank pie.

Hubby ate one in Murchison at the Rivers Café last week and raved about it. I had read on this forum previously about them at this cafe so stopped to sample. Sorry it’s not FJ.

4. Re: Lamb shank pie

the best lamb shank pies with kumara mash topping are at rivers cafe in murchison. its a compulsory stop for us on our travels and we also get some cold to take home.

otherwise try the fairlie bakehouse mackenzie lamb pie with lamb, mashed potato and pies - there may be a stockist in Franz (there are stockists in south island)

Fergbaker in Queenstown has great pies, they will have a lamb one but maybe not specifically lamb shank

Vicki, good luck in sourcing something like that in a small town like Franz Josef.
