They are basically the "Penguin" biscuits sold in UK and Europe, But maybe with an Australian take.

re: Australian cuisine ?

I had a colleague who raved about these after working in the "Deep South" for several years (actually New Zealand). She had a few packages sent to her one Christmas. Must say, I thought they were very good (albeit a bit over-rated, based upon her gushing description).

i only know of TimTams from Australia, via one of my colleagues, Tammy (TimmyTammy? nah). I didn't know they existed elsewhere. Oddly, though, when Tammy orders TimTams, they are often shipped via Thailand.

they ARE delicious....

re: Australian cuisine ?

and, as long as we're on Australian "cuisine," my neice's Australian squeeze prepared vegamite for me.... white bread, heavy schmear of butter, aenemic spread of vegamite.......

it was pretty tasty; reminded me of anchovies (which I like) more than anything else. He says it's merely the detritous of Australian brewing, where instead of feeding the pigs, they make a spread.

None of this is perjorative, regardless of how it sounds.

You can always buy Marmite which is pretty much the same taste as Vegemite, it is available in Walmart and Safeway / Sobeys and probably many other stores.

My Aussie friends say Kangaroo is greasy and few eat it. I'd try it. I have a thing about tasting all the animals.

Nah... High protein & Low fat --- Good for you.

Try a Vegemite (not Marmite) & cheese sandwich for lunch... Not Aussie gourmet but very tasty..

cheers

If you are on a low-sodium diet, I'd steer away from the Vegemite.

I'm pretty adventurous (and like anchovies) but Vegemite (and Marmite) .... definitely an acquired taste.

Phil - Sounds similar to my situation. Dad was Northern Italian, Mom is nth generation Canadian. Risotto and butter tarts as a culinary heritage...

My mother-in-law was Dutch - veal croquettes and oliebollen - seek 'em out, Phil.

Dubbel zoute drops, on the other hand ... only in small quantities.

My Zia Rina made a killer polenta. My dad ... maybe it was all in my head, but he just didn't seem to do it right. I remember one of my friends (her family was from Calabria) referring to us (those of Northern descent) as either 'polentone' or 'mangiafagiole'. I always got a kick out of being called a 'bean-eater'.

re: Australian cuisine ?

The things that were mentioned are more snacks than real Dutch cuisine. The deep fried cod in batter (kibbeling) and kroketten are really nice, as is another fastfood favourite: berenhap which is a sliced ball of minced meat with slices of onion in between, deep fried and served with a lot of warm peanut saice.
Real Dutch cuisine (not the Michelin star restaurant type but things we eat at home) would be thick pea soup ("snert") or one pan dishes like hutspot (mashed potatoes with carrots and onions and a large sausage. We actally just had that for dinner :-)

re: Australian cuisine ?

Snowy wheres your sense of adventure ? Alligator meat is popular here in the South, i might try some flesh of a young croc. I liked the part in the film about the girl travelling across Australia where she meets some aborigines and they toss a rabbit fur,insides and all on the fire to cook.Happy
