This seems to be the best place to post for this random question, so I'll try: Background: I like cooking, and Mexican food is my native cuisine, which the Tankie is fond of. Most UK visitors here seem to take to it like a duck to water, actually â my theory is that living on curry and heavy food prepares them for the spice and substance of it. I think that's lovely. If you go to any Mexican restaurant here on Sunday around 3 PM, you'll a crowd of the local soccer teams sucking down beer and tacos or birria (goat stew) with two or three English or Scotsmen comfortably ensconced in the group, drinking and shouting in half-Spanish. It's great. So I'd like to continue cooking Mexican food when I'm there; authentic Mexican cuisine seems like it's in short supply, and it might be a nice thing to serve guests or bring to a meet-and-greet. I am concerned about the availability of groceries, though. I've been warned that pinto beans, for instance [brown and black beans with a nice meaty flavor] are rarely found so restaurants substitute kidney beans. I CAN substitute a lot of stuff, but just...comes out strangely. So, are there any folks out there that have seen or heard of a market that imports Mexican groceries in the UK? (Tortillas, salsas, canned tomatoes, cheeses, etc.) Or where I might go to look for them? International markets that might be able to refer me along? We'll be living in the Blandford area but I will make a special trip to find what I need.... My last resort is to have my friends send over care packages but I'd prefer to spend my money supporting local stores. Plus I'd hate to get in trouble with Customs. Just a shot in the dark....thanks so much for any suggestions.
