Corned beef seems easy to get around here. I recommend Top Budget from Intermarche - little fat and a very good price.

Please do not bring that tin into the Uk as it appears damaged and could be infected by the mad Brussels disease

AFAIK dented and bent cans are unsafe as the inner thin plating of tin onto the steel is easily broken leading to reactions between the contents and the metal......

https://ask.usda.gov/s/article/Is-it...om-dented-cans

The US Department of Agriculture and other organisations say NO if the dent is on the top or involves a seam or an have a tiger laid in it. If the seal is broken at a seal, bacteria can enter rendering the food potentially dangerous.

That size denting would be a can to avoid for me.... sorry.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I have emailed my new BBF at the EU to ask him/her/they about meals made with quorn instead of meat. They are 100% vegetarian but when cooked look exactly the same as stuff what normal folk eat. I use 50/50 mix of mince/quorn now in my cooking normally...better for you; cheaper; save the planet etc etc

I asked him/her/they how I can prove it if we are stopped.

We'll see what he/her/they say...

Update on Quorn meals

The EU have responded...

Please see below a reply from our colleagues from EU Policies 2:


Quorn, as a fungus-derived product, is not a product of animal origin. Therefore, if not mixed with any ingredient of animal origin, there is no particular requirement to import in the EU.

More generally, there are no specific guidelines or legal provisions that specify which information must be shown. Normally the product description is on the packaging and that will be the information that custom officers could be expected to look at.

Finally, quorn is also available on the mainland.


So there we are: take an empty packet with you plus a translation maybe.

How they can tell whether a frozen chilli has quorn or meat though will be interesting!

So if it is not in a packet, then what ?

Does anyone know what the instructions are to HM Customs Officers inspecting a French or British MH entering the UK?
