Depends on the region, or Nonna's individual choice, my lot favour 50/50 pork and veal. Real pork not the stuff squeezes out of a sausage. Then again when I tell people the Spag Bol starts out with Onion, Carrot, and Celery they think I'm weird.

How else would you start a spag bol? Sofrito as that vege mix is called in Italy, or mirepoix in France, is the base for many good classic dishes. It should be diced very finely for spag bol though. Most people leave it too chunky.

I start just about everything with that three, doing a curry tonight to use some leftover chook, it’ll start with those some spud, some apple and sultanas I’ll see what’s around after that.

I like those, available in Aldi.

Aldi have their Dutch selection out at the moment if you wanted the red cabbage and sauerkraut and such.

Haven’t seen them there, potato gems are, but noisettes have a light crumbing on the outside, haven’t seen them in yonks, they used to come in a cardboard box back when Mrs Gut and I were newly weds living in a caravan.

I think the cardboard would have deteriorated by now, but the potato noisettes would likely still be okay.

I remember them, made by McCains from memory, no Aldi back then.  Not in OZ any way.  Remember Jewels and Flemings supermarkets, plus Franklins of course, a few of them in the Sutherland Shire, back then.

Sounds like my mother's recipe.

Big tin of Keen's curry powder for the flavour.

I do all the cooking at my place as I am a frustrated Chef and Keens Curry powder is what I use, I think it is a better product than 'Clive of India Curry powder. I always throw in a tablespoon of Paprika as well.

Lots of those older supermarkets became IGAs.

Probably in Sydney.   Loads of IGA's down here, Batehaven, Surf Beach, Malua Bay, Tomakin, Moruya.  Very handy when you don't want to go into Batemans Bay CBD in the tourist season to visit Coles, Woollies, Aldi with all those pesky Canberrans about.

Yes Mic, very nice with scrambled egg on a sambo - Curried Egg sambo, lubbly jubbly.  Or as the Brits would say 'Curried Egg Sarnie.

You won't find me down there, I like it here when the place empties.
