black puddings and pork pies

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?

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….

Astro, buy the DVDs.

I did.

No, DE. It was hard enough for my forebears to cross the Alps…by elephant.

Hey, astrojax, sounds cool – I’ll wait on for info.

After seeing this post I thought I’d actually try and find somewhere that sells Black Pudding.

the Belconnen Delicatessen (shop 26 Belconnen markets – the deli nearest the pet barn) sells three types of Black Pudding; a German/Austrian style, a Portuguese style and an Australian style.

Deli Cravings (the other one at Belco markets near the big wire fish) only sell one type.

They all looked like something I didn’t want to touch.

My husband swears Mr Zivko, who used to be at EPIC with his van, makes the best black pudding. (in his garage in Queanbeyan, I believe!) We haven’t seen him lately. I so loathe the stuff, I have to leave the house when he cooks it. The children love it.

Debacle in Braddon does black pudding as part of its big breakky

astrojax astrojax 3:23 pm 19 Nov 07

coolest, stereo henry – will slide me out to epic on sat’dy am and acquire some goodness!

and i’ll ask, while there, if haggis is available anywhere. sounds like these chaps’d know! (so watch this space, hasdrubahl…)

There’s a bloke at the Farmer’s Markets at EPIC who makes a great pork pie and there’s also the Cheese Man (occasionally at EPIC, often at Kingston Markets) who sells a fantastic black pudding… I’m salivating just thinking about it!

Again, Holt IGA. The source of foodstuffs that the other wankers are too scared to stock.

go boys.

Pork pies which taste very authentic can be bought in Woden at the deli outside Coles…

Not being such a food pedant as some critics I’ve encountered on this site – woolies and most deli’s stock black pudding. KR (the producer of woolies black pudding) makes it up in Queensland, so aussie made and all that.
