Told you folks it would be next. What do you consider to be your stand out food? What makes your mouth water...food wise?

Marmite looks like tar and tastes like yeast. You put it on toast or in a sammich.

Vegemite?

Yes, I was joking about the marmite. When our son was in high school he went on a trip to Australia and NZ, and brought back a jar of the stuff.

My wife and I tried it.

Zounds.

I suppose that's where the phrase "acquired taste" comes from. Suffice it to say I'd kiss Haggis full on the lips before I'd willingly try marmite again.

Sober, at any rate.

Marmite is an Oz food? er, I think Oz was only discovered 20 years or so before it was found to be edible ( by a german). Are you quick workers or...?

The advertising slogan for Marmite is of course

You love it or you hate it.

Featuring various people being chased by toast with marmite on, or scarfing down bucket loads. Even the website says it.

Personally I love it, on hot toast mixed with the melted butter. And it's actually healthy!

* nerd note : In one of Pratchett's books, Rincewind invents marmite / vegemite by being a very bad cook.


So there must be more to Oz cuisine surely? It's not all prawns on the barbie and vegemite! So what is the national dish?
