    Spread it on bread with potato chips to make a 'marmite and chippie sandwich'? I have no words...just when you think there is hope of understanding between peoples!

    Once you've mastered Vegemite then you can go for the gusto Marmite.
    I enjoy the english Marmite over the Canadian one.

    Canadians have Marmite? My dad and grandpa never told me... I don't think they knew. But....maybe that's why they left!

    I'm on the way....
    There are hundreds of uses for Marmite, do your roast potatoes with it, also great in soups. I'm sure the jar we gave you in Seattle Ed didn't last long. :)

    And a limited edition.

    Can't find Vegemite over here, so can't compare. I always thought both were made in a similar way, from the same (or similar) raw material?

    Best regards,

    I've had Vegamite, takes a bit of getting used to.:-k

    @ROBBO55 pretty well spelled it out - start with the thin spread on toast, and go from there. :thumbup:

    @z1ulike , Ben, think "salt lick" salty, like you almost couldn't believe! :shock:

    That’s a big trip, Rob!

    I know Uluru and Kakadu well from my past life in the National Parks and Wildlife Service.

    Have a great time.

    Cheers

    Many thanks.
    No stoves (unless I randomly trip across some), this is a photography-focused trip with a mate and while stoves, fire, flame and fotografs work well together, we will not be partaking.
    I may post some results from the trip if I come back with anything worthwhile [-o<
    Regards,
    Rob

    Marmite is very popular here in South Africa. It is used in many dishes and recipes and there are derivative products such as this:

    I've not yet had any Vegemite! However, since I quite like Marmite, and although I know they are NOT the same, I really suspect I would like the Vegemite as well. :-) I really should try and source some. I'd bet "amazon" has it.. LOL ;-) ( I REVEL in trying different foods. I've done escargo twice now, and after the second try I found that they really are quite similar to mussels, which are MUCH less expensive! :-) So... I'd eat the snails again, but only if someone else is buying! :-) ATB!

    Those snails doesn't grow more than half size here, I don't eat them anyways but they seem to drive away most of the invasive brown slugs.

    I always liked escargot, though come to think of I haven't had any for a long time. Humus and garlic mostly, as I recall.

    What I really liked was ris de veaux (sp), veal sweetbreads. But forget about it. In olden times (i.e., in my youth and early manhood), you'd find them on all menus of really nice restaurants. Plus, there'd be a true French restaurant here and there back then.

    Gone with the wind. Haven't seen them on a menu hereabouts, or thereabouts for that matter, in years. And classic French restaurants are a thing of the past here, at least outside of the great metropoli.

    Escargot is nothing. Anything cooked in garlic butter tastes good. If you want to be adventurous try surströmming. I ordered Vegemite through Amazon but they said it would take 2-3 weeks to arrive. It must come by boat from Australia.
