"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
One of the biggest foodie questions that is asked of us Aussies, is “what is Vegemite?”. Our classic response is that it is scraped off the bottom of the beer barrels after fermentation! Really, it’s kind of beef extract spread that is great thinly spread on buttered toast (lots of vitamin B for the day after). Most unsuspecting visitors get a very thick layer spread on toast and find it most unpleasant.
