15I'm really shocked that not one of you supposed international travellers haven't as yet nominated a - beetroot included burger with the lot in Australia.

16Well, as an Aussie, i would vote for any Maggie Beer's products that you can buy at her old Restraunant site run by her and her husband for more than 20 years, that you can also buy also at my local supermarket now......................They are the best, do try her spicy tomato sauce, and her stir through pasta range, little cooking and yum!

22Spanish jamon (illegal to import into the US)
Some Spanish enterprises are allowed to export legally Jamón to the USA since some years ago.

23Yes, I remember wading through the Jamón regulations once for an inquiry on the US branch. The US Dept. of Ag. has certified certain producers in Spain for import into the US.

25Germany - most of their sausages and breads and lunch meats - although my husband did make an amazing bratwurst recently, which helps. I figured since the Luftwaffe have a base here (well, on the American AFB) that we would be able to find good German food here but so far the best I've had have been made by my husband and a (new) friend of ours.
Antiqua - fish, fish, fish. I don't remember most of what we had but it was amazing (20+ years ago)
Morocco - Some of the breads. I was thinking about trying to make a few but forgot, I might have to try again. And pigeon bastilla. There was a lot of other good food there too but we've been able to reproduce most of it (and improve some).
Egypt - Fried pigeon (although I would take the head off if I were to try to make it) and really good falafels. Maybe it's just that we were on vacation but I can't seem to make the falafels as good as we had there.

26Where can I buy morcilla de Burgos in Britain, anillos_de_saturno?
P.S. I do live in Britain but as Lonely Planet's Scotland Ambassador to Australia spend a lot of time flying first class on Qantas.
