Tim Fischer finds Aussie meat pie in Germany

Like any good Aussie travelling overseas, former deputy PM Tim Fischer misses a good old Aussie meat pie. But not this time on a recent trip to Germany.

In Bonn to take up his new role as chairman of Crop Trust, the international organisation dedicated to safeguarding crop biodiversity, Tim was amazed to find a food truck flogging Tasmanian meat pies.

The Tazzy Food truck run by Tasmanian Gareth Patterson does a roaring trade in Australian gourmet food.

“It was uplifting and energising to enjoy great ‘Tazzy Food’ on the left bank of the Rhine in Bonn,” Tim said.

“As a former trade minister, I was delighted to indulge and to spread the word about Tasmania and Australia — something I have been doing since 1996 when I had to eat a Tasmanian oyster in Tokyo at 6am at a key fish market.”

Once a trade minister, always a trade minister.
