Australia: Koala Bear

And I'd say America is probably without an identifier, though with it's all-over-the-disgusting-board lack of decent taste we could probably lump McDonalds food into one single "food" category and sadly call it...no, I can't bring myself to say it even.

Have you ever been to Australia, gone into a restaurant and seen Koala on the menu? I hight doubt it. You have probably seen Kangaroo and Emu in some places, but it's not common. Yes, we do eat the animals on our coat of arms.

mmmmhh - sitting in a Restaurant on Breakfast Creek having Moreton Bay bugs for starters and then Barramundi with a good Chardonnay. Gotta go there again.

Typical German -

there's plenty and it's all regional

but sausage is a runner up (not Scotland - they have Haggis) with many regional variations, like the White Sausage in Bavaria or the type that goes best with Green Cabbage in Northern Germany. Let's not forget Curry Wurst which was invented in Berlin and the best can be eaten in hamburg -Moenckebergstrasse, right in the city.

Bread -we have more bread types than the French have cheese. Just to mention some.

Quoting Melpax (Reply 24):

Well, I'd like to clear this up, I believe that would be grilling, since that is done on a grill. Barbecue is a pretty long process of slow roasting with continual replenishment of barbecue sauce.

Unless you guys down there switch the two names around, but I don't know that.

Well, i was there in May and i am aware of the fine dining that can be experienced over there. I was just generalizing. When i was there i went to FRA at a subway station in Frankfurt and purchased a sausage, bun and beer. It was great and a lot of others down there were enjoying a quick lunch.

I was amazed at all the shops selling food. There are thousands of sandwiches displayed in the windows ready for consumption. I wonder how many of those get thrown out after sitting in a window for some time?

Here some info :
--------------------------------- Hoummous, my favourite : ---------
HOMMOS BET'HINEH
Ingredients:
1 glass of dry chick peas (or a can of cooked chick peas)
Tarator sauce as prepared above
about 2 tablespoons olive oil
--
If the chick peas aren't cooked, soak them overnight. Cook them well then mash them in such a way as to get a thick pur�e. Add the tarator and mix thoroughly. The olive oil is poured on top of the hommos before serving.
--
Tips
Served alongside the hommos are usually radishes, green onions, Feta (lamb) cheese and pickles.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Arayess Kafta
--
Ingredients
Grilled Lamb Meat � kg (16 oz) kafta 1 � pitta bread, cut into 12 pieces 2 tbls butter
--
How to:
Spread some butter on the inner part of bread pieces. Divide kafta into 12 portions. Spread over buttered bread. Put pieces in a grill or an oven at 200�C for 5 minutes or till kafta is cooked. Serve hot with cold yoghurt
------------------------------------------------------------------
KEBBEH Nayyeh
--
ingredients:
2 1/5 lbs. lamb pure lean and completely free of all fat
8 1/2 oz. burghul (ground wheat)
4 oz. onions
2 1/2 tbs. salt
1 tsp. pepper
--
How to:
Grind meat and onions coarsely in a food chopper. Then put this mixture into a "Cutter" and add salt and pepper. Blend in "Cutter" for about 10 minutes. As cutter turns, add small cubes of ice to be ground with the mixture. This helps give the meat more consistency. At the end of ten minutes start adding the burghul. Continue blending ten minutes longer after all burghul has been added. Put mixture into a bowl and garnish. Serve cold
-----------------------------------------------------------------
LAHMEH BI AJIN
--
ingredients :
2 1/5 lbs. flour
1 pt. water
1 1/2 tbs. salt
1/2 oz. yeast (1 cake commercial American yeast)
1 lb. butter that has been melted and cooled
2 1/2 lbs. lean lamb, chopped fine
2 lbs. red onions, finely chopped
1 stick of butter to fry the chopped meat
4 oz. snobar (pine nuts)
2 tbs. salt for the meat
1 1/2 cups of vinegar or labni
1/2 tsp. pepper
--
How to:
Sift flour, melt yeast in water and add salt. Pour the yeast mixture gradually on the flour kneading all the while. Allow dough to rest 3 hours. Melt butter and work it into the risen dough. Form dough into small balls.
--
Prepare filling: Fry chopped onions in butter until it is a golden brown. Add meat, spices and snobar and stir occasionally. After a few minutes add vinegar and let cook a little longer. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
--
Roll out balls of dough with one finger (in order to remain round). Put some of the filling on the flattened pieces of dough and arrange in a baking pan. Bake in hot oven for a few minutes. Serve hot with yoghurt.

Scotland = Haggis, Tatties and Neeps with a wee dram of whisky

Cock-a-Leekie soup, oatcakes and shortbread, too. But you're right, not sausage!
