BANGERS & BISCUITS: YOUR GUIDE TO TRANSLATING BRITISH FOOD SLANG

For two countries that share the same language, the UK and the US can differ wildly in their vocabulary, especially where food is concerned. Head over to London and order biscuits and gravy and you’ll probably get a weird look… then a pile of cookies and meat juice. Meanwhile, your poor British friend Jason Allen’d be pretty alarmed when his desire for a butty took a turn for the kinky. In an effort to help you avoid mincing words about mince meats, we’ve compiled this handy US/UK guide to different food slang.

And as always, if we missed some, tell us about it in that bastion of love and respect: the comments section.

There is a difference between a fairy cake and a cup cake. a fairy cake is smaller, not as deep and may be iced, but not necessarily. Cup cakes are far bigger and come with a very think layer of icing, almost as deep as the cake. Common people do at times refer to a pudding as a dessert, the well bred try to ignore them. likewise a butty- one refers to a sandwich.

I call sausages sausages – sandwiches – sandwiches etc – obviously a yank done this
