I've often written about the little treats that I missed from my native England (mostly now available here), but have not thought much about what I would miss in return if I was to live back in the UK again.
Large tins of confit, wine at €1.10 per litre, and several items of charcuterie come to mind, but there are other less well known delights that I would also miss terribly.
For example, our Summers would not be complete without the Tunisian Salade Méchouia (piquante) which accompanies our simple lunchtime salads.
This is a mix of grilled hot Peppers, Bell Peppers, and Tomatoes in Olive oil. Sounds basic enough, but it lifts an otherwise dull salad to dizzying heights.
When (if) I was obliged to send a lorry over to France to collect confit, wine, and charcuterie, I would also have to import several dozen jars of Salade Méchouia at the same time.
I would REFUSE TO BE DEPRIVED!
