Hugh Jackman's tip on finding the best pies in the world

Lamingtons, Pavlova, Anzac biscuits, rum balls, sticky date pudding, rum balls and sherry trifle are goodies you'd expect to buy anywhere in Australia or New Zealand. In Montreal, where poutine, maple syrup and bagels are king, finding a stash of Aussie and Kiwi delights is a treat.   

Just ask Hugh Jackman.    

While filming X-Men: Days of Future Past in Montreal (in August last year), the Hollywood heart throb discovered this gem of an Aussie pie shop in the midst of French Quebec. Wolverine liked the pies so much he spread the word on social media, tweeting "Best meat pies in the world".  

That's when things went crazy for pie shop owners Don Hudson and Melanie Des Lauriers. The couple was hounded by the press and featured on radio and in newspaper articles.   

Don is from New Zealand and has lived in Australia for much of his life. Melanie is from Quebec and has a special place in her heart for our land. The couple opened the shop four years ago.
