Doesn't that look delicious?
It does indeed.
But what is it, Tillerman?
That, my friend is a "pie floater."
According to Wikipedia (which is never wrong) the pie floater is an Australian dish particularly common in Adelaide. It commonly consists of a traditional Australian-style meat pie, usually sitting, but sometimes submerged (sometimes upside down) in a bowl of thick pea soup. It is usually garnished with tomato sauce.
Apparently Anthony Bourdain, Billy Connolly and Joe Cocker are high profile fans of the pie floater.
Well, Joe Cocker was a big fan of pie floaters before he died a couple of years ago. As far as I know nobody ever conclusively proved a connection between Mr. Cocker's death and his consumption of pie floaters.
The pie floater in the photo at the top of this post is from Vili's Café in Adelaide, Australia. (How did you guess?)
And when I go to the 2017 Laser Masters Worlds in Adelaide I am definitely going to Vili's Café to enjoy a pie floater.
Can you believe it? Some of the Anonymous commenters on my blog have been casting doubts on my assertion that the 2017 Laser Masters Worlds will be in Adelaide.
How dare they?
Do I question your faith?
