    We had one here on Rhodes but it has recently closed down due to lack of support and delays in getting goods delivered reb_popo

    I suspect the British shop here on Rhodes closed due to high prices
    Items marked on packaging @ 99 pence being sold for over € 3
    To be honest we are able to buy everything we need including British foods [ if wanted ] in Greek supermarkets @ reasonable prices

    Ah yes, “Need” and “Want”.
    I do not need Chip shop curry sauce, or Spicy Black Pudding, but they are luxuries that I will pay for.
    If you want to compare to UK prices, then you should include the cost of your trip to a UK shop.

    We must be spoiled here on Rhodes.
    No problem getting black pudding either at a supermarket deli or a village butcher
    Jars of curry sauces from Pataks or Uncle Ben & supermarket own brands available

    I crave Xmas mince pies, which should be home made but, the Brit ones are pretty good.

    This isn’t just curry sauce, it’s Chip Shop curry sauce. That means only the finest ingredients; Modified starch, Hydrolysed vegetable protein, colourings, flavourings and preservatives. It’s the stuff that glows in the dark, that can’t be served in those polystyrene cups because it dissolves them. It bears no resemblance to anything that ever existed beyond Calais. However, half a pint of this, poured over a bowl of chips on a Friday night, washed down with a few lagers is one of my greatest indulgences!

    THAT IS SO UNFAIR!! How can you make such amazing stuff?

    I have to say my mouth drooled at the sausages, I could practically smell them frying. Why don’t you start a small cottage industry and sell to some of the neighbours.

    Amazing effort Bravo reb_bravo

    Thanks Kiwi…. You’re not alone in that thought ! Some time ago a friend who I was also making stuff for suggested the very same thing. I attended a localish mainly expat bazaar, in a mainly expat area of the Peloponnese. Everything I took sold out ! Things have got busier since then…. Retirement now seems a long way off again ! :)) Also, set up a page on face book under the title of “Fayre Enough”, explaining the produce I make & more importantly how to make it, should others wish to have a go (Don’t want to bore all on here with foody things! ) :mrgreen:

    Not bored at all sundodge since getting the fixings for such fodder is easy enough in Greece so why not have a try. Those sausages look divine and just like shop bought. Am sure a lot of people are already searching out your page.
