Ethnic food


As Heinz baked beans are placed under “Ethnic Foods” in the Auchan supermarket I feel English marmalade may fall into the same category. A few days ago when wandering round Fano I saw a small cafe selling “Wilkin and Sons Marmalade”. The marmalade in made in Tiptree, Essex. Tiptree is not only famous for jams but it is also where Bill’s Aunt Elsie was born. 

There on the shelf was non only marmalade (unfortunately only medium cut) but also some of their jams I never tried  – green gooseberry, green fig, ginger etc. They cost 5 euros a jar compared to about £1.55 in the UK but if an ex-pat gets a craving for Rhubarb and Ginger jam then it’s available in Fano.
