British Recipes

UK To USA Ingredient Translation

It has been said that food is an international language. That is certainly true and it can be great fun preparing recipes that originate from different corners of the globe. With that said, there can be practical problems that crop up when making a recipe that somebody from a different country developed.

Often there can be confusion over the names of ingredients. For Americans cooking British recipes (and the other way around) sometimes we can scratch our heads trying to figure out the ingredients but really they are usually all things that can be pretty easily found in both countries. The only difference is the name used for those ingredients.

So, I put together this quick list of ingredients and what they are called in the UK vs what they are called in the USA.
