Years ago, we moved from our home in Switzerland to England. Among the mixed emotions, one standout was a relief to live again in an English-language culture.

While I can write at length about our bumbling and surprisingly foreign experience settling into U.K. life, I will stay on the topic of language. After all, it was one of the perks of this international move, and the excuse we used to propel ourselves to a remote corner of southeast England in our well-intentioned quest to blend in. After all, we were fluent in the local language — we only missed a

LONDON (Reuters) – Exports of food and drink from the United Kingdom to the European Union plunged by 75.5% in January, the Food and Drink Federation said on Monday, attributing much of the fall to post-Brexit barriers.

The lobby group said the worst hit trade route was to Ireland. In January 2020, Ireland was the UK’s biggest market, representing around 18% of total food and drink exported. A year on the figure had dropped to only 5%, it said.

While pre-Brexit stockpiling and weak hospitality demand during the pandemic will have been a factor, the Federation said “much of” the

It’s basically a fruity lemonade with flavored teas, so it’s sure to be refreshing. This combination of ingredients also creates an ombré appearance, which

Secret Birria, a taco spot which opened in November in Uptown, isn’t on a main drag. You have to know it’s there, because it would be easy to pass right by the storefront windows looking in on a kitchen and service counter. Secret Birria offers counter service and outside seating in the adjacent driveway, with food delivered through a side window.

The compact menu hangs its hat on birria tacos, the now-trending traditional tacos that are typically made with slow-stewed beef, simmered with guajillo and ancho chiles into an oily, fragrant pool of flavorful shredded meat. Super popular in cities
