This week I had my first ever pie floater. I have lived in South Australia for almost six years and only this week, on a whim, when I went for lunch to Cafe Villis, I was able to sample this gourmet delight.
A pie floater, a South Australian delicacy consists of a traditional Australian meat pie covered with tomato sauce and inverted in a plate of thick green pea soup. It was recognised as a South Australian Heritage Item by the National Trust of Australia.
As you can see, mine had a lot of soup. Delicious.
