5. I agree with the Yanks on most of those foods (?)

But not Vegemite.

I love my Vegemite on a slice of bread and butter, like my mum gave me when I was a kid.

Yum!

7. I hate Vegemite

but I don't know any of my fellow Aussies who eat it with a spoon. It's spread THIN on bread, not eaten with a spoon.

8. No, it has to be used very sparingly, just a skim over toast

I used it back east in the US to add flavor to vegetarian sauces and gravies. It worked very well for that, diluted and thickened, meat eaters always thought they were eating meat and I never set them straight.

Out west, it's hard to find so I use Marmite the same way.

I can't imagine trying to eat it by the spoonful. Yuck.

11. Is this the point where Brits stick up for Marmite over Vegemite?

I certainly prefer Marmite, although if you loathe Marmite or Vegemite the chances are you will also loathe the other one.

12. I prefer Vegemite, but only by the thinnest whisker

I wouldn't eat either one by the spoonful.

I'd rather live.

13. Cultural thing, I guess.

I never ate Marmite when I lived in England, so I can't say what it's like. Loyalty, I guess.

Or maybe Vegemite really is better.

6. Vegimite tastes like sadness



Although that Milo stuff sounds potentially promising - Pre-fermeted wort is one of the best parts of homebrewing.

14. Lamingtons

When I lived in Oz, I loved Lamingtons. My family had a restaurant but we didn't make them in the restaurant kitchen; we got them from the local bakery. Yum. Although there are loads of recipes on the internet, I've never attempted to make Lamingtons at home.

"A lamington is a dessert of Australian origin. It consists of squares of sponge cake coated first in a layer of traditionally chocolate sauce, then in desiccated coconut." Wikipedia

In Oz, we ate Vegemite on bread with butter and a huge amount of lettuce. It was the only way to make it palatable.

I also remember liking meat pies, essentially a street food purchased often at walk-up counters and eaten out of hand. Their cherry pies were a shock -- they left the pits in.
