Cooking...? Down under......

This is a non-political, non-racist Weblogspot, but for a change, I'm going to probably upset all those people I know "down under"....!
You see....I didn't think that deported criminals knew a lot about cooking, being too busy with "Ned Kelly" style activities, but seems I was wrong.....!
Oh - I do apologise....!
Mind you - I didn't know how to cook Bushes,      I always assumed that was Moses job...and I'm still of the opinion that a lot of those Australian Chefs DO look more like Ned Kelly's descendants than culinary experts, but....I'm learning!
 ......It appears that Australian Cookery is "Cosmopolitan" with a tendence, logically, to the English version...these things ...called "dim sims" look suspiciously like "sausage rolls" to me, just made from 'roo meat sausages, I guess!
Being the sophisticated, hospitable Europeans that we are, if you want to see more bout the subject - try this:

You'll find things like....
Good old Aussie Meat Pie
"good old Aussie meat pie"
....or the old favourite of the "diggers down under" Vegemite Australias favourite spreadtogether with Ketchup it seems to be the backbone of down under culinary art... Of course, life wouldn't be the same without finishing off with a slice of the most delectable and

 artistically fabricated Pavlova with berries and cream.."Pavlova with berries and cream" -  interestingly enough over the "Pavlova" there is a feud going on, between New Zealand and Australia concerning the origin....the most important thing is that they keep it strictly "down under".........On my researches, I was amazed to find that little or no reference was made to the infamous and numerous wild inhabitants of that largish sub-continent, there are reportedly more of them than people... ...Now why? Either it's like the flamingos here, inedible or they're hiding a great delicacy....!
Mind you - I finally got close to my "eyeball" search, with this....."Kangaroo meat balls" - well, it's a start!...It seems that it can be used also for more traditional purposes, but they don't mention the Brussels, Roast potatoes and gravy, and they do suggest that as an "alternative" BEEF  should be used....wonder why...?
No - I'm sure that if I ever went "down under" I'd want my trials to include this exotic thing..and just hope it would neither punch me on the nose nor hop off the plate and down the dusty track.......
Actually, I wonder what "baby kangaroos"      are called...not "lambs" surely? If so, I understand why they would normally hide themselves in pouches....!
Upon more detailed investigation, I discovered that - in fact - they make just about  everything from these poor little hoppers....!
Well - in Europe we've had Ostrich meat from South Africa for some years, but "Kangy" is something I'll have to keep an eye out for. I'm sure it's delicious.
As I'm sure you have all understood - this is a "light hearted" look at that old British Colony (ooopppsss..did I spoil it all again?) - I have to say that, since Australian men (and women) have a certain reputation amongst us Roastbeefs.....
One day....maybe....I'll pop down and have a look, although I'm not too good at standing on my head....!

Mind you....they can't be ALL bad...they do play Cricket....or did...!
Even if their reputation had to be rehearsed..

Just to finish off with, I'll leave you with this charming Australian way of asking politely for something to eat.........and what happened when he didn't get it.....
....then I'd better get out of here...
