For Anglophiles

British Grub, Stateside

And for those of us who grew up on a pimple-producing diet of bacon butties, Cornish pasties and Scotch eggs, there is a certain yearning for British food which is tough to satisfy on US soil.

Until now. Happily, a growing number of American suppliers are catering to the British palate, with all the above now available – for a price, of course.

Following a particularly enthusiastic Facebook discussion on the splendid Quite Peckish page, I have compiled this list of Stateside sources for British yummies.

If you want to dip your toes into the risky adventure that is British food, I’d recommend you start with something sweet… Leave the Haggis until you’ve mastered dunking the Ginger Nuts.

During the launch celebrations for Saving Saffron Sweeting, I plan to do a British food giveaway. What UK edible would you most like to taste/win?

    Anything with a name like bacon butties has got to be great.
