For me, bearing in mind Im a Kiwi, I sooooo want a good scoff of a Steak & Kidney Pie. The kind with a suet crust, and Beef Stroganoff done properly.
A Bombe Alaska, Ginger Gems that have been cooked in the irons, my mums Pikelets and Cupcakes with Passionfruit Icing. A great big Maori boil up of Puha, pork bones, kumara and watercress. Smoked eels that have dried on our clothes line ( 40 years ago...lolol) A good Shrimp cocktail with real Aurora sauce. ( I know!!!)
Oh boy.......Im off to the fridge for my leftover Thai flaovoured Mussel Fritters. Not Retro, just ****ed good.
