Australias national dish: a big pile of meat

News Ltd put it to the vote earlier this year and roast lamb came out on top as Australia’s national dish after almost 24,000 votes, very closely followed by the meat pie then the barbequed sausage in bread, with salt and pepper squid hardly rating a mention. Meat was the clear winner here (surely to the delight of Meat and Livestock Australia), and we should all be proud that our national dish also doubles as an entire food group.
I always thought that the national dish of a country (or region) wouldn’t be something decided by popular vote (which is proving itself a useless way to decide anything – I’m looking at you Cheesybite), but would be a reflection on our actual eating habits. If the top three dishes in this survey are consumed at a level of excess, Australia can look forward to a healthy does of heart disease and high cholesterol caused by a diet rich in saturated fats and whatever else is in a meat pie or the humble snag (but don’t take my word for it, I’m not a doctor or a scientist).
