May have been mentioned already. Have not read the whole thread.

In NZ we cook tea. If somebody asks you over for tea it normally means come for dinner/supper. Nothing to do with Tea.

And if you ever going to a kids party. You will get to see fairy bread. Its disgusting stuff but the kids seem to love it. We once had a work function and everybody was asked to "bring a plate" Someone brought fairy bread. Could not believe it. 



Sossage sizzles are also not that great. But thats an Aussie thing too. Its a piece of bread (un buttered), with a saussage on top (normally the cheapest sausages available), with tomato sauce and mustard sauce on top. Sometimes onion. Kids love them too. And hey, I have started eating them. Normally sold outside shopping malls etc ...

Some people also drink tea... but personally I could never get into that. If someone offers you coffee, what you're going to get is not completely guaranteed. I know some otherwise quite nice people who drink - ugh - instant coffee. But I guess nobody's perfect.

I am struggling to recall times I have been invited to "tea" as the evening repast.

SaltyNZ:Good question... what does it actually taste like?


Something tells me I am digging myself deeper. But good whale meat is fairly coarse and taste kind of like other red meats - something like horse meat, bad whale meat can have a taste of cod liver to it.

As far as I know it does not necessarily mean evening either. Can be lunch.

Its confused us many times.

SaltyNZ: Horses are pets, please don't eat your friend's horse. It is ok to suggest they get a donkey go with it as they make the sausages taste better, as long you are good at acting surprised when they tell you the horse is a pet.

If you go to your friends place and they say 'bring a plate,' they mean for you to bring it with food on it. Try not to put horse on it though.


I can bring som whale meat maybe?


Good question... what does it actually taste like?


Salty, it tastes a lot like Kiwi or Takahe, but without feathers obviously.

The meat is a little too fresh if it can bite.

Anyone else think SaltyNZ should be our NZ ambassador? Dress him up in a suit made from the NZ flag, and he can answer all and every question when people step off a plane.
