Pies hit spot at Yamba and Maclean
WHAT do people in the Lower Clarence do for kicks during a global financial meltdown?
They eat pies - and in Yamba that can mean up to 1300 a day.
The only thing melting down for Pot Belly Pies is the cheese amongst the beef and bacon in one of their flaky favourites.
Maclean High student Francesca Mann, 17, was whipped out of the pie shop in Yamba and into the two-week-old Pot Belly Pies number two shop in River Street, Maclean, where she spends her weekends and holidays away from the rigours of Year 12 study, serving the likes of the Balmoral to hungry patrons.
“It's a favourite of the older gentlemen,” Ms Mann said of the steak, mushroom, mustard, scotch and cream delight.
While perks of the job include take-home left overs, Ms Mann said the police force, not the world of gastronomy, are where her sights are set after leaving school.
