    I’m reading pies, savoury meat ones yet all I can see is the meringue pie. I want that badly 🙂

    Just think in Canada you’ll be able to share so many maple delights.

    1. Whispering Gums

      Oh, Canada … Love that maple syrup. But loved our Rutherglen weekend too, upon which Hannah has reported beautifully here. Pfoffertjes

    This may be the only time in history that I find myself less attracted to a lemon dessert and pine instead for a pancake. Oh those poffertjes! I don’t even like pancakes very much, and yet they just look so fluffy and plump and tongue-meltingly light. Step up your game lemon meringue, you’re slacking if a pancake is putting you to shame.

    Emu pie?! I would have chose the fluffy meringues too. And more wine. 😉

      I find emu too oily and tough. Likewise, I much prefer the meringues.

    THAT’S HIM!!!! THAT’S CHRISTOPHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also, immediately following the winery, we also went to Parkers Pies… where I too ate the lemon meringue 😀

    I WANT SOME POFFERTJES RIGHT NOW! I tried one (yes, just one; someone else bought them and I snatched a single one from their plate) in the Netherlands and oh glory be, the deliciousness.

    Can we trade families? Even for just a little bit? 🙂

    What a gorgeous looking lemon meringue pie. I love how it’s sky-high! I’d love a big piece even if it is very sugary. And those pies have such interesting flavours. Which one did you choose? It seems you are having a wonderful time on this tour around the wineries. xx

    I love these kind of sky high lemon meringue pies hehe 🙂 Especially those that are VERY sugary hahahaa 😛

    I wish I could go on a holiday like you hehe ~

  9. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    WHY HAVE I NEVER SEEN POFFERTJES? This suddenly seems of utmost importance. They look like pikelets but cuter and fluffier. And they have a splendiferous name.

    Also, a whisky and chocolate factory? Is this so non-chocolate lovers will agree to go? I am very in favour of the concept!

    So much pie and amazing food my friend – your experiences get better and better 😀
    I can’t help but stare at the food, honestly my eyes are drawn to its freshness!

    I can only stare goggle-eyed at that lemon meringue pie!! Wish I were trundling along in that car behind you xcat

    you have the lemon meringue pie (even if you look like you are tipping it off your plate in that photo) and I will run away with the winery kitty – criminality is when you take it but if it comes willingly that is surely legal – it looks so very cute!

  13. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Well it’s probably for the best that you don’t go to prison because I don’t think prison would suit you! Nor I for that matter so I stay away from criminality (is that a word? well it is now :P).

    Charleston, Charleston, made in Caroliiiiiiina. What are the blue gum and iron bark honeys like?

    I would dance and prance for delicious meringue pie and the world’s second most beautiful cat! – after mine, of course. She’s sitting right here and following along with what I’m typing, so I gots to be faithful.

    Love the nickname you’ve given your brother’s girlfriend:)

    I have to confess I’m not really into meringue… but poffertjes yes please!

  16. Eleanor@eatinglikeahorse

    I love your post titles; they’re always brilliant 🙂
    I also love the look of those mini pancakes – I think I’d have scoffed the lot in seconds – and that lemon meringue pie… the ones in cafes here always look so unappetising but that looks like a dream in a bowl!

  17. SarahKate (Mi Casa-Su Casa)

    That kitty!! How did you not scoop him up and just run for the hills?? Surely a few happy hours frolicking with a pretty kitty like that would be worth a criminal record??

  18. Ashley

    Ooh, I’d love to try emu pie, how different! Although your slice of lemon meringue pie looks absolutely LUSCIOUS. AND KITTY! <3

    I’ll never forget the time I took the Irish version of Tylenol or whatever for a headache and then went out to the bar and made a complete fool of myself since the medication had codeine in it!

    I’m pretty sure that you don’t eat savoury food. You *claim* to, but I’m not convinced. Nope, not at all.
