ABC WEDNESDAY



E IS FOR ..........EATING and drinking

A huge part of our 2003 adventure across northern & north western Australia was eating & drinking. Heather, Rob & Ian are all incredible cooks & my then 15 y/o nephew Tim a very willing apprentice. My role....kitchen aid, & Peter's...bar attendant.


We ate the most amazing meals, and truly, there is nothing those 3 can't cook in a cast-iron camp oven.....Turkish bread, friandes, 40-cloves chicken, Moroccan lamb, apple crumble, Old Cork pork, Black Forest cake, bread loaves & rolls!


At Darwin's Mindil markets, there is an eye-popping choice in satays & burgers when you check the selection available.

We ate meals in the most incredible and mundane locations....empty beaches in a tiny patch of shade & car parks with picnic benches.

If you munch your way over to Mrs Nesbitt's, you'll find links to more ABC Wednesday posts.

eating is such a huge part of the mediterranean, so i can fully sympathise with your incredible mundane locations, which makes food take on a whole new meaning in such places

I once joined a party where eating was through a buffet. Australian walked around the buffet table and put everything on the plate ending up with caramel pudding and Ice on top. I started with cold dishes and returned to the buffet to get fish. When entering the buffet the third time for the warm meat, many looked at me with strange eyes.
Why do some of the people in Australia always make hash out of the eating process.

I think it would have been dangerous for me to go to Australia...

Rambling Woods said...

Ok..now I am really hungry. I've never heard of "cork pork", but if it's pork, it has to be good. Thank you so much for visiting Rambling Woods..

Ann said...

Hi cabacurl - that food looks good, its making me hungry.

To answer your questions - yes, its a fountain with blue light shining on it; I went to the same high school as Sally (do I know you?); she lives in the street I grew up in and where my parents lived until late last year.
