The Corvallis Meat Pie Shop is operated by Ian Tooth, who hails from the land Down Under. The business got started, in a roundabout way, because Tooth couldn't find a good meat pie in the mid-Willamette Valley.
So his fiancee, Tammy Bailey, tinkered with recipes until she got things right.
That led to the opening of their business in the lobby of the Benton Plaza in downtown Corvallis.
For Tooth, the Australian meat pie is a versatile workingman's food, substantial, packed with protein and able to be used as a sit down dining option or, more typically, grabbed and eaten on the go.
Trust us, these pies are far more powerful than they might look at first glance.
