There is traditional Australian food that goes back hundreds of years – but other than macadamia nuts and perhaps witchety grubs, most modern Australians don’t know what it is. We do have lamb (cue hundreds of sheep jokes), vegemite (blurk), pavlova (yay – but technically a New Zealand dish) and barbeques.
On Sunday CJ and I went to my brother’s house for a barbeque. There were sausages, steaks, and kebabs. It was insanely delicious.
My brother, stoically ignoring me:
And yes, like everything else from non-indigenous Australia, it’s not unique to us. The historically-recent mix of cultures is what makes Australia special. That, and our (usually deadly) animals.
Here’s a video of some galahs partying in the recent heavy rain:
