    I would like some sharp, pungent English cheese. Double Gloucester, red Leicester, maybe some Wensleydale.

    In exchange, I can offer crappy, fake, plastic American cheese. Kraft singles, anyone?

    That's okay. I would have been curious to try it but am not even sure if meat products are allowed through customs. The rebel in me was SOO tempted to send you some Kinder Surprise eggs exactly because they are illegal in the US.

    It is a name that is taken from the First Nation's Band Odawa (Anishinaabe). Ottawa is part of the Ottawa River valley where the old tribes used to live.
    Don't like my modera... Oh wait, wrong forum. Carry on.

    New Zealand is famous for meat pies...not exactly the world's healthiest food...and a dessert named pavlova, named after a Russian dancer (presumably she blew the chef who invented it).

    I am taking a crash course for students on traditional European cooking later this year, so if anybody wants to swap greasy, meaty recipes you are welcome.

    I LOVE venison pies. They are kind of a regional specialty...I have fond memories of a particular pie shop where I have gone in the holidays, and after a hard day on the water I would go and buy about three or four pies. Here are the TripAdvisor reviews, which may be useful for anybody who is planning to ever come to NZ: Miles Better Pies, Te Anau - Restaurant Reviews, Phone Number & Photos - TripAdvisor

    Anyway here's a venison pie recipe I've found on the net before and tried out.

    What you need:
    500-600g of Venison (cubed).
    30ml oil
    3 tbsp of flour
    100-200g of mushrooms (cubed)
    2/3 cup beef stock
    1 cup of red wine
    1tbsp tomato paste
    1 tsp fresh thyme
    500g puff pastry sheets (better to have too many than too few)
    milk

    Instructions
    Season the meat with a bit of salt and pepper and brown it in oil.
    Add the flour and stir until browned.
    Add the mushrooms, stock, wine, tomato paste and herbs.
    Bring to boil then simmer on the stove (or stew in the oven) until tender.
    Correct seasoning and consistency and once it's done put the meat in a dish and chuck it in the fridge to cool.
    Line a pie dish with pastry and fill with meat mixture.
    Cover with pastry lid and seal the edges (may need a slit on the top to breathe).
    Brush with milk and bake at 200 degrees celsius for about 30 minutes or until golden.
    Eat! But remember, always blow on the pie.

    Here is the original recipe for anyone who is interested: Venison, Mushroom & Red Wine Pie (I removed the onion and garlic as I always do...they make me gag. I also substituted dry for fresh thyme because fresh thyme is much nicer, and if you can't grow any you can always pick some off the side of the road or something...)

    Good sir, I disagree! The best ones are salted caramel. I also really liked the new red velvet ones.

    IMHO if one is to fully appreciate the delights of the Tim Tam then one needs these...
