black puddings and pork pies

By astrojax 17 November 2007 27

In the ‘rain‘ thread, it were made mention o’ eric othlewaite o’ denley moor. ‘is mother made black pudding sooo black, even t’ white bits are black!

so, where in sunny canberra does one acquire a good black pudding? i’ve had a few, and have some places of me own to try, but i’m keen to hear of other offal-lovers where this delicious fare may be duly obtained and why you think this one is a su-perior product to t’others…

and so, by dint of loose association, same for pork pies. delis at supermarkets have them on occasion, but usually just of one ilk. used to be one could get a range of three or four types, some better’n others. whither the pork pie?

What’s Your opinion?

I have known about these people http://www.pacdon.com.au/ fora while. Unfortunately invictoria so ou will have to enquire with them as to whether they have stockings in ACT. Seems like they could solve all of your culinary cravings in one hit. With you on the pork pie though. Never had a good one here…lovely bits of jelly, pastry that’s not tasteless. If you do find a good local purveyor, then let me know.

I knew someone at work who had an English boyfriend and when he presented her with English pork pies for tea, she went to put them in the oven to heat up. An attempt at romance that almost went horrily wrong!

This is all good to know.

But wot about haggis?

bump!

the butcher at dickson stocks a range of scottish products, including haggis and black pudding. they also do ‘scottish pies’, which a lamb concoction eaten either hot or cold (had mine t’other day cold – mmm). their black puddings are also excellent, though have yet to try the haggis (astress isn’t so keen, so need to find a haggis buddy with whom to share this delicacy)

but i revisited this thread to see if anyone had ideas about pork pies, ’cause for the life of me i can only find pratchett’s pork pies [notwithstanding that these are entirely passable as pork pies] – including in the deli outside coles in woden, while coles has the same product much cheaper – and despair that i may never again enjoy variety in a pork pie in our capital again…

anyone know of any anywhere??

Ditto.

You can buy the complete collection (3 DVD’s) on Ebay for about 40 quid.

You also get for free enough toilet roll tubes to build a glider, and a half-naked Filipino lady.

Ok, that was a lie – it’s only on 2 DVD’s….
