Also see @Pulse's answer. Check out the China town for 'vegetarian food', they have all sort of fake meat from chicken to beef, from abalone to fish, all made of modified tofu fibres.
Honeycomb can be made with honey or molasses but the flavor will not be the same. There isn't a US equivalent - we have molasses, but it's darker. You can substitute corn syrup in recipes where it isn't the principal ingredient, but here that would not work. That being said, my local grocery store has a British food section which carries golden syrup. You ...
Spanish Chorizo comes in two forms both of which to the best of my knowledge are fully cured (cooked): one which is more for eating on its own (like salami) and the other which tends to have a higher ratio of fat in it and is used primarily for cooking. The latter one being what the recipe is referring to as "cooking chorizo". Oftentimes the cooking ...
Seitan is good, and very easy to make at home. (Just a little time consuming.) My measurements are not metric, so if anyone can translate, I'd appreciate it. Bring to a boil about a gallon of water. Add to that any particular flavors you like. I usually add dried basil and oregano, some vegetable broth (about a cup), vegan worchestershire or soy sauce, and ...
Typically referred to as "soured cream" in the UK, it is the same as "sour cream" in the US. While there are many different types of flour, Baking flour is the same in the UK as it is in the US.
"Cooking chorizo" probably refers to chorizo for cooking rather than eating raw. Cooking chorizos are usually smallish (8-16 cm), sometimes curved like a banana and tied together by a string in chains, whereas eating chorizos are usually straight, larger (30-50 cm), and you eat them raw in thin slices, like salami. In some places in Spain, they use the word ...
Along Pulse's lines, seitan may work well. Depending on the dish, sometimes I prefer seitan's texture over tofu. In the US, you can find it in many health food stores in the refrigerated section, often by tofu, and sometimes regular grocery stores if you're lucky.
What about Tofu It's essentially the coagulated soy milk, pressed into blocsk. It's great in all kinds of recipes, especially Asian dishes, it really absorbs the flavours from the rest of the ingredients.
I use Golden Syrup, here in the US, all the time; I find it in the regular baking section, but I have seen it, like the previous answer, in the international section. I'm sure it's the same in the UK, but here it now comes in easy-pour plastic bottles (just in case you were looking for it in different packaging), rather than only in tins like I used to buy ...
Mex Grocer has an excellent selection: http://www.mexgrocer.co.uk/. I've ordered chillies once from them in the past with success.
There are a bunch of places online (a bunch sell through amazon). Personally I've found Chinese supermarkets to be pretty good. They may not sell every variety but they have much better range than the mainstream ones. You don't really rehydrate them to their original form but soak them in warm water for about 20-30 minutes to get the flavour out and then ...
The Chilli Company in Suffolk (just up the road from me :-) ) certainly have chipotle chillies as they sell chipotle sauce; although they don't list chillies for sale on their website it might be worth giving them a ring.
Spanish 'Cooking' Chorizo is semi-cured, hence, you have to finish the cooking process yourself. The semi cure only takes a week, where as fully cured takes about 8 weeks. Fully cured you can eat without cooking. If the packaging doesn't state if it's for cooking and you are not sure, check to see if it's semi cured, or not. Cooking chorizo is also spicy - ...
For mince my favourite is Sainsbury's own brand. They use eggs in other meat-like products but not in the mince soya protein. It is by far the best I've tried and is about £1.5 for a whole bag. You find it in the frozen section. For everything else Fry's Family is my first choice. You can find them in most health shops and at online at Ocado.
GO TO HOLLAND AND BARETTS they are soooo good. Get the vegetarian's choice sausages and burgers they are vegan and their texture is far better than anything i've tasted before. They also do lots of vegan cheeses, ham, pepperoni. It depends what holland and barrett store you go to some also have fresh pasties and sausage rolls etc.
In the UK, you may want to have a look at the Vegan Society. They endorse a range of products which can be recognized through their sunflower logo. I'm rather fond of products made by a company named The Redwood Wholefood Company, they produce quite an interesting range of vegan meat substitutes, including ready-to-use slices. You should be able to find ...
