Quest for the ultimate Australia Day feast

Is it even ours? Would pavlova make your list for the ideal Australia Day feast?

We're on the hunt for Australia's favourite dishes. Is it the pavlova (and do we care if New Zealand claims it?), mid-loin lamb chops thrown on the barbecue? A beetroot-adorned burger? Or does one of the native meats deserve special status: kangaroo, crocodile or wallaby?

We want to hear from you in time for Australia Day as we search for the nation's best-loved food - the dishes, recipes and ingredients that make us who we are.

We're happy to hear all your nominations, from indigenous foods to well-loved adopted ones that reflect Australia's multiculturalism.

Is our national dish roast lamb and lamingtons? And did Paul Hogan have it right when he suggested we love to throw a shrimp (read prawn) on the barbie?
