Things I still don’t get about Australia – No. 24
The deep and abiding love of beetroot. Actually I do kind of get this because I’m pretty keen on beetroot myself, but I’d probably never have thought of putting some in a hamburger much less inventing special jars specifically for storing beetroot. And beetroot pizzas? Never in a bazillion years would I have thought of that. Not so much odd as just surprising, and not remotely a criticism because the weirdest beetroot serving idea I’ve ever heard of is beetroot fucking ice cream. And the madman responsible for that is a Brit.
