An American Spaniard in France or: How I Learned to Make an Ass of Myself in Three Cultures

Union Jack + punk + plaid =

It must have been around the time of the great Thomas’ English Muffin recipe lawsuit that I asked a UK-born co-worker if he’d ever had an English muffin. “A woa?” he asked, being pretty British.

Turns out they’re not so English, much as bagels aren’t really American. Not to belabor the issue but crumpets are totally another thing and are indeed “English.”

Found these at Monoprix which is a chain of very nice grocery stores that have like a small Target in them.

They’re on the less-good side of okay, and they certainly aren’t like Thomas’. That recipe is totally worth protecting since they’ve got a good thing going’ over there.

I'm an American Spaniard, living in France. I like to tell stories.

  1. I love the tagline of all pseudo-English products in France “SO BRITISH!”
