Tway, it's called Marmite! (made of meat or so)

It's so yuck!!! I even don't like Vegemite (did I spell it right now???)

I could never eat it, but some people reckon u get used to it

Ah... Marmite. When I was small, my mom used to mix a teaspoon into the rice porridge for me to eat. I remember I liked it. ;)

Cheers,

My favorite is probably the traditional English roast, crunchie roasted potatoes, honey and garlic carrots, yorkshire pudding, medium nice bit of beef and onion and redwine gravy. Talking about roast dinner is it Sunday today, gotta head of the pub for one of those. Mmmmm.... May a sticky toffee pudding with custard as well. I shall not be moving for two days after that.

Hmmm...

Its well known that you either love or hate marmite. Which to put everyone straight is Yeast Extract, leftovers from making beer.

The meaty stuff is Bovril but I don't know if people have eaten Bovril since the 1940s. I think you can still get the drink at football matches.

Marmite is the same as Vegemite. I suspect Marmite came first. You can buy vegemite here too if you look hard. As an English gal I daren't say it, but I suspect vegemite is a bit nicer!

Less is more with this stuff, but you really can't beat marmite on toast with a steaming mug of tea.

Here are some scottish delights!

Haggis, Neeps and Tatties..... (bits of sheep, heart liver and lungs with oats and spices and cooked in sheeps stomach - neeps are turnip and tatties are potatoes for those that dont know)

Mince and Tatties.... (literally beef mince in gravy with onions and potatoes)

Blackpudding.... (sheeps blood with barley and oats and stuff)

Cullin Skink..... (haddock and potato soup)

Now, is there any wonder i am veggie!!

oh, there are nice ones though - shortbread, yum... and of course whisky!

Great breads on Ireland, Soda Farls, Wheaten bread, Potato bread and boxty. Very, very tasty.

Great fresh produce in Ireland, ive noticed that chicken breasts in london are about 1/2 the size and are really pale.

Duck eggs are brilliant, lots of stews and soups, Clonakilty black pudding and the piece de resistance, Tayto Cheese and Onion crisps.

....and a pint of Guinness of course.

In the Philippines, all major fiestas have got to have Lechon de leche (roasted suckling pig--it comes with an apple stuck in its mouth. heh.) I love Thai, Indian, Italian, Middle Eastern and Latin American cuisine. I dated a Brazilian guy before and I made him Feijoada Completa--he wanted to marry me because he's had to go without it for 3 years.

Am not really a big fan of Chinese food. Well, I am, but I like gringo Chinese food ( I love my fortune cookies and mooshoo chicken.) I think I've lost about 5 kgs ever since I started working here in Shanghai as I've been off my feed.

One thing I'd love to try: Wisconsin burger's chicken breast and bacon burgers! My Kiwi flatmate talks about it with such longing that I can't wait to try it out myself.
