You can count me in as well.

Goodweed of the North. By the way, what is your restaurant theme? What demographic are you looking to please? Is this a low-end, put your hair down, relax and order some grub kind of place, a sandwich shop, a sit down to a nice meal place, or is it high end, catering to those with more refined tastes?

We will need to know that before we can assist. Oh, and since we're pretty much all foodies around here, be prepared for some unique answers, with posibly ideas that you may not have considered before.

Also, beware, we tend to cook from scratch, which isn't always a viable option in a restaurant.

With the crowd on this site, and the truly international expertise available, I think you've come to the right place.

Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

I think we've figured out an easy way to do this using a blog where registration isn't even required. We'll get started on it this afternoon and I'll PM everyone when we're done.

Anyone else that wants to jump in over the next week or two is more than welcome, there'll just be a bit to read.
MrsMac, Scotty has deliberately mentioned Pavlova because he knows that really, it was created in New Zealand first. And that he will get a bite. Not of said Pavlova, but from me.
And Im not.

That's a bite, don't try and foo foo it as something else you.



It's like shooting fish in a barrel with you Kiwis.

Funny actually, this thread came through in email too and at the bottom it says "a n g e l" and I thought hello, there's another Kiwi out there with the nickname angel that's as easily hooked as Lyn.

But there isn't ........

Alas, alack. Pavlova is a Kiwi invention. Poor Aussies have never got over it. ;Þ

Some would say I'm bad for stirring up trouble yanno. So ..... if I remember rightly I think someone researched it and finally concluded that the Kiwis came up with the recipe but the Aussies were certainly the ones that named it pavlova. The Kiwis called it meringue cake at the time.

So it's kinda like an adopted red headed step child or something down there.

And very nice eating, especially after a rubgy match

i think that's known as the mating call of the ferocious (like a kitten) deadly sushi, 'round here.

P.S. Wait a minute... "adopted red headed step child" - only I wasn't adopted!!! And the hair really was red, once upon a time.
