Canberra is continuing to crush salmonella but not in a good way
In March I wrote about the rates of Salmonella isolation and infection in Canberra. This was associated with a few outbreaks associated with food outlets.
Today I was tagged in a meme on Facebook about a combination of salmon and Nutella making salmonella. I thought it was pretty funny, so for lunch, I made a salmon wrap and put a jar of Nutella in the background. A blogger friend, Rebecca wrote on Facebook that she hoped I wouldn’t put the two together.
Salmonellosis in Canberra and Australia
It remains a concern that the rates of salmonellosis remain second only to the Northern Territory of Australia and well above the national average.
It makes one wonder what it happening in the national capital which boasts of such a food-centric culture.
Salmon and Nutella
Did I or didn’t I?
Nope, even I couldn’t bring myself to smear Nutella on salmon. I couldn’t even put it on the wrap. Instead, I laid down some garlic aioli then the shredded lettuce then some tomato and then the salmon. On top of that, I added the remained of the tomato and some spicy bits.
It was a great wrap. I needed two hands to hold it and eat it though.

While you’re there, you’ll see I’ve started a YouTube channel to go with the podcast. Episode 70 will drop tonight at 7 pm Canberra time.
Episode 69 was a bit of a highlight.
How do you like Nutella?
My favourite way of eating Nutella is coated around a spoonful of peanut paste. A treat I love is to take a long parfait spoon and scoop up a large ball of crunchy peanut paste and then plunge that into a jar of room temperature Nutella and coat the peanut paste in the hazelnut chocolate goodness and then lick it off as I watch TV.
