Ryan Broomfield learnt the art of pie making from his brother Neil, Britain’s most awarded pie man and Supreme Pie Champion of Britain 2015. Ryan had an idea to provide ‘take and bake’ pies to Manly commuters; offering a bistro quality meal (in a pie) that can be taken home and baked in 20 minutes. In May 2017 he launched the PieCycle at Manly Wharf. The PieCycle is a nod and a wink to Sydney’s illustrious pie history and its original flying pieman William Francis King who in the 1840/50s sold pies to Parramatta steamer passengers. It also references the pie hawkers of Victorian England who would sell pies from a barrow or a shallow (trays carried on the head).
