Talking of foods you can only get on one side of the Atlantic, today I've developed a sudden craving for clam chowder (the creamy New England type, not the tomato-based Manhattan kind). Don't think I've ever seen it for sale in the UK.

European Union to ban calling meat free items burgers, sausages etc. We are not allowed to call soya milk "milk" now.

https://www.theguardian.com/food/2019/apr/04/eu-to-ban-non-meat-product-labels-veggie-burgers-and-vegan-steaks

Veggie burgers are for the chop, a Brussels committee has decreed, to be replaced by the less palatable-sounding “veggie discs”.

And it won’t be just bean or mushroom burgers condemned to the food bin of history. Vegan sausages, tofu steaks and soya escalopes could all be approaching their ultimate best-before date, after a vote in the European parliament on revisions to a food-labelling regulation.

In a move that some MEPs suspect bears the fingerprints of the meat industry, the parliament’s agriculture committee this week approved a ban on producers of vegetarian food using nomenclature usually deployed to describe meat.
