Lidl British food week apparently starts on January 27 (perhaps I should disable comments here).
Some readers were keen on the cheddar. This is not really really high-class mature cheddar, but it is very pleasant nevertheless. They also have ginger nuts, which are hard ginger biscuits you may want to dunk in tea or coffee to soften. The fish and chips is made with a German favourite, Seelachs – literally sea salmon, but actually coley. We used to feed the cats coley, but then before WWI my mother’s family used to feed the cats on tinned pink salmon. I think coley and pollock are getting more common in the UK now, to protect cod, but I can’t really see it as authentic. I do not know what their marmalade is like. The caramel shortcakes are a recent invention craze and I am afraid I may get some. They have baked beans too, but I have no trouble getting those here.
