image for America and UK in "food exchange" week
Yorkshire pudding - it ain't what you think.

The USA and UK are embarking on a "food exchange week" from today, to help citizens of each understand the other's way of life better. Exhibitions and tastings have been organised all over America and Britain.

For example, how many British people know what grits are, let alone know what they taste like or where to pick them? Huckleberries, clam chowder, jambalaya, crawfish pie and file gumbo, not to mention hog's head cheese and Tupelo honey, are all mysteries this side of the Atlantic.

Similarly, how many Americans have sampled the delights of a Yorkshire pudding or deep-fried Mars bar? Proper fish 'n' chips? Black pudding? Melton Mowbray pork pie with Branston pickle? Haggis? Donner Kebab? Chicken tikka masala?

These and other traditional British dishes will be made available for our American cousins to try.
