Well, the Rat Coffins made me think of Tortures and Nasties - perhaps better known as Tourtieres and (Cornish) Pasties, although I didn't realize this until I was almost 20 because they were only ever referred to as Tortures and Nasties in my house.

And there is another Australian delicacy - the "rat coffin"

A pastry shell enclosing chunks of mystery meat dressed in thick brown gravy.. It also goes by the name of a meat pie.

I have to say the commercial where they disparage dodgy meat pies from the service station as "Servo Pies" is quintessentially Australian.

It's almost never bad to feed someone.

I have long considered E-numbers as used in Europe and beyond to be mere pseudonyms/

dissimulations for food additives. 

 

Still, it's amazing how many people report sensitivity to MSG, but are OK with E621.

I wanted my 7 year old daughter to eat a snail so I told her it was chicken. I told her the truth the next day, so she knows she's eaten snail, but blindly.

Similarly, in Italy back in 1994, friends served me some minced meat, then told me the next day that it had been horse, so I've eaten horse, but blindly.
