In Sydney and spent a great day with my sister wandering around Eveleigh Markets, then Chinatown. Lunch in a little hole-in-the-wall joint serving amazing with cabbage, bean sprouts and garlic chives and steamed beef buns. Dropped in to Cyril's Delicatessen - and Cyril is still there, just as he was 40 years ago. When it was established, this was about the only place you could buy goose fat, Polish sausage, chanterelles and other European goodies. Cyril had some jars of gorgeous salmon roe. Each egg was a distinct sphere. There was none of the salty sludge that settles in the bottom of less than fresh jars of roe. As well as this roe, I also bought a tub of fresh goose fat - for some future potato wedges.
