Australian cafes have been popping up here in the U.S., boasting bright, sunny interiors and healthy-ish dishes like avocado toast and gluten-free banana bread.

The One Kitchen Appliance Mosts Aussies Don’t HavePeople
Although cafe culture is relatively new to Australia — we didn’t really have many coffee shops until the 1980s — we Aussies have taken to coffee like kangaroos to the outback … or shrimp to the barbie? You get the point! So strong is our passion that we have even managed to export our flat whites and long blacks to the rest of the world, with Australian cafes springing up everywhere from New York to Paris to Barcelona.

Marmite Is Better than VegemitePeople
Marmite is a magical and delicious yeasty spread. It is not the only one — copycat versions of it exist around the world — but it is the original, and it is the best. I lived in Australia for a while, where one of its competitors thrives. You know the spread that shall not be named that I speak of. It pales in comparison! My Aussie friends tried to get me to change my mind about it by using love, persuasion, and outright threats.

Arnott’s Tim Tam Biscuits are the world’s most popular chocolate biscuits.

People Are Freaking Out Over This New Smurf “Latte”People
Aunt Beru was onto something with blue milk. Although the color “blue” is normally deemed an unappetizing color for food, it seems to be popping up everywhere in drinks (blue wine!). The latest trendy beverage comes to us from Australia at Matcha Mylkbar, where the smurf “latte” was born only six days ago. What’s particularly interesting about this “latte” is that there is no espresso or coffee to be found in the beverage.

I think we can all agree that marmite and vegemite can be considered an acquired taste. Personally, I love a thin smear of marmite on a piece of buttered toast, so pungent that it makes my tongue tingle. But love it or hate it, there are still plenty of ways to use this sticky paste in the kitchen.• Dark Sticky Lamb Stew from Jamie Oliver – A generous spoonful of marmite gives this stew some heft.

What To Do With a Big, Pretty, Expensive CookbookPeople
I recently received a cookbook to review, Maggie’s Harvest by Australian cook Maggie Beer. It’s an extraordinarily beautiful book, with a padded linen cover embroidered with leaves and oranges, and stuffed full of lush photographs and brightly colored ribbons. And at 736 pages it’s a hefty one, too.Maggie’s Harvest is clearly a labor of love and I have a lot of respect and admiration for that.
