About Blue Pear Pantry

Why Blue Pear Pantry?

At Blue Pear Pantry we aspire to provide healthy and nutritious home cooked ready made meals, as an alternative to takeaway.

We strive to use gluten free ingredients as well as carefully chosen ingredients that do not add any sulphates, additives or preservatives to our dishes.

We use local suppliers from Eltham, Research and Warrandyte for all our fresh, organic, grass fed and free range ingredients.

So, when you purchase a Blue Pear Pantry meal you are supporting the immediate community.

Our meals are for tonight, tomorrow and next Wednesday after sport.

Have them in the freezer for the unexpected ‘running late night’.

Delivery can be arranged from your home or office!

We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy the same meal despite allergies or intolerances. For this reason we can swap or omit specific ingredients so that the whole family can enjoy the same, no fuss meal.

Eating as a family is a favourite past time and should be enjoyed by every family member.

We make meal times easy for every body.

Blue Pear Pantry meals are also available at selected retailers. Click here for more information.

Packaging

Our containers are made from 100% recycled materials.

They are heat sealed to lock in the freshness and can be used in the microwave or OVEN to reheat (up to 120 degrees) and all of our packaging is recyclable.

Meals are frozen fresh to maintain a high level of nutrients without additives, preservatives or gasses.

We care about our environment and also use recycled paper bags for deliveries. These bags are strong and can be reused and also go directly in the compost or recycle bin when you have finished with them.

Awards

“Local producer wins prestigious medal” – Diamond Valley Leader

Local producer Blue Pear Pantry is celebrating after winning a Silver Medal at the 2017 Australian Food Awards (AFA) for their Gourmet Sausage Rolls.  

This is the first time the home business has entered the prestigious competition, and are astonished with the result.  “We are overjoyed are thrilled to be a silver medallist, as it really confirms that all the hard work is paying off and our products really are of a high standard,” said Deb Graham.

The AFA, conducted by The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) offers Australian producers broad opportunities to leverage their success locally and internationally with AFA’s national brand seal of quality.

Entrants have the opportunity to benchmark against set criteria; receive invaluable independent feedback from industry experts; and be rewarded for excellence. 

You may have heard about the Great Aussie Pie Competition. Bakers and Pie Makers from all over Australia converge alternately in Sydney & Melbourne each September to compete for the most sought after award in their industry, The Official Great Aussie Pie Competition.

For the last couple of years the Great Aussie Sausage Roll Competition has been running with some amazing entrants. The competition is judged over a four day period by an elite team of 16 judges from the baking industry.

As a newcomer to this competition, Blue Pear Pantry’s Gourmet Sausage Rolls were entered and awarded a Silver. An excellent result for the home cook from North Warrandyte.  

A FORMER construction manager who had never cooked a pastry three years ago is now whipping up one of the most scrumptious sausage rolls in the country.

North Warrandyte’s Deb Graham started her home-cooking business Blue Pear Pantry after having children and struggling to get back into the workforce.

She found her sausage rolls, the cheekiest treat on her menu, were becoming a massive hit with customers.

And critics agreed earlier this month, awarding her a silver medal in the Great Australian Sausage Roll competition in Sydney.

It followed on from another silver medal in the sausage roll or pastry category at the Australian Food Awards earlier this year.

“I’m still waiting for someone to ring me up and tell me it’s a mistake,” Ms Graham said.

‘It’s awesome, I never thought I would get a national award for cooking, three years ago I’d never made a sausage roll in my life.”

Ms Graham credited her success to the locally-sourced ingredients in her sausage rolls, which include grass-fed beef from butchers in Eltham and Research, and carrots and herbs from Quinton’s IGA in Warrandyte.

She said the reactions from customers sampling her dishes were one of the most rewarding parts of running her business.

“It’s great to have people enjoying my food and realising it’s not your average sausage roll.”
