You didn't happen to speak to a couple from L.A. about fine dining, did you?

You know,,! I;m not sure.

It slipped my mind last night as i was typing, but we stopped for a 1st class lunch at the Whitestone Cafe a few miles north of Oamaru, the steamed green mussels with coconut broth,chilis and cilantro was great and my brother had the lamb's fry, something i love but wouldn't be able to sell in the US.

The couple I was touring with chatted with a fellow American traveler who recommended Fleur's and Whitestone (IIRC) as 'must do' dining experiences. Unfortunately we were staying at Burnside Homestead a ways out of town and had pre-booked dinner with them.

But then lambs fry, bacon and onion on toast would be just bacon and onion on toast.

Ewwww...

As kids we lived in Aus for a few years, Manly on the north shore of Sydney,

Mum, being a frugal girl from the Welsh valleys soon found out that the butcher was giving away lambs liver and kidneys as pet food...(this was in the 60's) so this, along with braised hearts became part of our diet..

I was never to keen on the way Mum made the liver but i've always enjoyed all the other stuff you get from inside the animal..

Offal isn't popular in the States but i ythink they sneak it into things like hot dogs and "meat"loaf . and who the hell knows what's in Spam..

North America was a culinary waste land when i came here in the early 80's exept for LA and NY but it has improve so much since, and the same can be said of UK.

In New Zealand i saw a great concern about the origin of the of the food being eaten (perhaps not the meat pies)

I will be back for more research..

I live in Northridge, a few miles from Laurel Canyon.
