Don't get me started on cornish pasties... After reading your post, it made me realise how much I miss them!
I'm sure they are exceptionally rare as most things with pastry on them here are sweet. If you find them, pleeeeeease let me know lol.

I have but can't for the life of me seen where...could have been in Toronto...you can find more Brit stuff there.

There's a recipe or two or five in the Recipe thread in The Lounge...you'll probably need to use the Search Function to locate them. Yeah OK...OK you're like me when it comes to that mystery room...THE KITCHEN.

So today I was in Safeway, and maybe some of you knew this but it was news to me that they had a British munchie aisle.. so see pics below and have a look in your local store.
Interesting that many of the products are more expensive than the same items in Australia, which is usually more expensive. Marmite at - what is that - $7.19 a jar? Now the currencies are almost the same that works out to about $7.31 AUD, but here it's $4.95, and other items the same. I guess there is more demand in Aus due to higher nos of Brits.

I don't think all (or even many) Safeways have a Brit-food section - not seen one at my local shop (which is 1/2 a block away). That said I might check tomorrow incase its hidden somewhere.

The supermarkets around here have no British sections, they have a few things that are scattered in different places. I would love the selections I see in the pics here. I think I'll make a list from them and put in a suggestion for a new ethnic section.

Not Cornish Pasties, but a great recipe for Corned Beef Pasties. The advice of liberal lashings of Worcestershire Sauce is spot on, but I also bung in a spot of tomato puree too. They went down a storm at our BritNic in June, but were met with extreme caution at an all American bbq we took them to

I think its more Safeway they are very over priced in the US.

The menu sounds good. How do they taste?

I thought I was odd taking pictures of the kids and I shopping in Tesco last summer, I haven't started taking pics in Safeway yet.
I've seen those isles in most Safeway we go in. We stand and look and rarely buy, we usually follow up with a trip to Stockton to the Cost Plus World Market, I found with sales it's cheaper and fresher.
