On a fun stroll around “Little Britain Boulevard,” Nicky Perry of Tea & Sympathy and A Salt & Battery breaks down the English-American food barrier. Starting with tea: “English people drink their tea quite strong and quite flavorful and quite bold. And Americans are really used to the sweepings off the floor. ‘Gnat’s piss,’ we call it.” Perry, lover of Mars bars, clotted cream, and the ampersand, obviously ends with a rant on the proper fish and chips. FYI: Perry’s tea bags go on sale this week. [Metro NY]
