Pizzaboy and I came up with a few possiblities: Meat Pie & Sauce Shepherds Pie Fish’n’Chips Pavlova Sticky Date Pudding Lamingtons Masterchef runner-up Poh Ling Yeow suggests that it may be Salt & Pepper Squid.

    In honour of Australia Day celebrations, here is a blog post about a wonderful Australian chef, Curtis Stone. Enjoy!
