Pork pies and mushy peas ?

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, but can't find a foodie place here.....does anyone on here know where we can buy mushy peas please?  or pork pies?  I love the Australian supermarkets, very well stocked, and so nicely kept, I am very impressed by the high standards and cleanliness of these shops where I live, but just wondering if the items I have mentioned are available in Oz?   🙂

Pork pies are available everywhere, but not so sure about mushy peas.

Coles and Woolies have tinned mushy peas. I guess they may have pork pies in the deli area - no idea what they are like though.

Yep. You can get tinned mushy peas and our local IGA sell good pork pies, scotch eggs, black pudding. If you ask the local IGA for something they'll try and get it.

Woolworths sell Pork Pies too. (in the deli counter ) and our local one also sells Batchelors Mushy peas, original and chip shop style. The pork pies are not  quite as good as UK ones though, in my opinion of course.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Thanks for that info. Paul, I will have a look in the Warwick IGA shop tomorrow, never been in there, so will give it a whirl!   Tried the local Coles and Woolworths too, but not found those things in either supermarket here.   Fingers crossed the IGA will stock them.   🙂

Thank you everyone who replied with helpful information.....I do miss mushy peas, sounds daft I know, but just one of those English things I really like!   But I do love lots of Ozzie things too 🙂

I think some of the smaller butchers also do pork pies- depends where you live I guess. Also the farmers' markets often have them.

If you are ever in Toowoomba check out Andrews Meats at Grand Central shopping centre for pork pies.
