new question real quick:


most of the things in outback steak house aren't traditionally Australian. (we had a chain called lonestar steakhouse and saloon with almost exactly the same menu). There isn't even a pavlova or a lamington in sight.

what is traditional Australian food? Do you have a recipe that calls for things I could easily get in the US? Culture class is done, and we're having our party on Wed. (Pretty sure I aced the paper, thanks for all the insights!) I'd love to bring in some food from Australia since that was my country.

Vegemite! Use with caution though, spread thinly.

When my Dad had to take traditional food to a work bbq he took emu sasuages and kangaroo steaks. We are the only country in the world where you can eat the National Emblem animals  ;D

Here's a blog entry from the Australian War Memorial about ANZAC biscuits

Tim Tams... and then you can all do the Tim Tam Slam.   :)  I know that some of my friends in Canada can get them in their local grocery store so you may be able to get them at a store near you in the international foods section - or wherever they keep the chocolate biscuits.  :)
