Last week our Intermediate class studied all things food-related and to finish the week off tasted the Australian classic Vegemite on toast.
Most Aussies love Vegemite, but for newcomers it can be polarizing. Some love it, and others don’t, the reactions from our students were priceless.
Vegemite is an acquired taste, it is salty with a subtle bitterness and an umami flavour reminiscent of an intense soy sauce.
Vegemite on toast is simply toasted white bread with butter and Vegemite.
The recommended ratio of vegemite and butter depends on who you ask. If you are a newcomer, try Vegemite in smaller doses first as the strong taste goes a long way.
Preparing and sharing a Vegemite on toast together was a great way to finish off the week and the food-related section of the textbook.
