Traveling abroad may be fascinating since chain restaurants tailor their menus to local tastes. It's also depressing.
Who hasn't fantasized of flying to China for KFC's Dragon Twister, a take on Peking duck, or to India for McDonald's McSpicy Paneer, a fried patty of the country's firm, mild cheese?
That's why we're both thrilled and sorry to inform you that Starbucks U.K. has a new drink inspired by two legendary British treats, but it won't be available in the United States.
The company brought the Pumpkin Spice Latte and cold brew to the United Kingdom. The Clotted Cream Cold Brew pays homage to British cuisine.
Unlike our smooth, pourable heavy cream, British clotted cream. It isn't whipped cream or butter. It's thick enough to spread on breakfast and high tea treats like scones like butter.
It is simple to make clotted cream at home. When full-cream cow's milk is heated and rested, the milk fat separates and rises to the top, forming clots.
The clotted cream is then removed. Even if the drink does not become popular, it is a unique ingredient worth trying.
The drink also contains fudge from the United Kingdom. Fudge, like caramel and taffy, is formed of crystalline butter, milk, and sugar.
Many food historians believe that fudge evolved from tablet, a Scottish delicacy that is grainier and brittle yet similar to fudge.
Fudge is a typical British delicacy, and it goes well with clotted cream. So, whether you're from Jolly Old or simply passing by, have a cup of each!
