    Tip re the mayo, you just have to make sure you look for ones labelled whole egg or egg mayo, otherwise you get that sweet stuff, half way between mayo and salad cream. Dont worry, there is proper mayo!!! :D

    Im ashamed to say I do also have sausage advice (are you starting to get the picture that food is important to me!). Central Market in the city all the way. There was a guy with a sausage stall in there who sold amazing sauages. Proper ones, not the ones that look like plastic. I hope that he is still there. There are also lots of proper butchers in the market who do them as well.

     

    You can also get Green and Blacks chocolate in the David Jones Food Hall in Rundle Mall.:D

    I am going to write this all down and put it in my little moving to oz pack :)

     

    I have spent the last year learning to cook lol I only cooked twice a week then lived off m&s ready meals and take out, I figured that it would be food I would miss the most and make me feel home sick!! So I have now become a whizz in the kitchen so much so hubby dose not take me out to eat anymore to eat as he reckons my food is nicer!!! Really shot myself in the foot lol

    We get our sausages from the butchers in southgate plaza in reynella.. he's an English Butcher & makes them to the same recipe as back home.. lincolnshire, cumberland etc...

    Hellmanns mayonaise in Coles is imported from UK/EU so thats the best you'll get to back home.
