Moving to America may seem quite a straightforward transition as expat re-locations go. After all, they speak English, right? However, there are still many things that are lost in translation and it can be frustrating trying to find familiar foodstuffs, especially when catering for a family.
This book covers it all… and not just the obvious pitfalls of differing pronunciation! This guide is written with several uses in mind. For the nervous newbie expat trying to plan for an upcoming move it provides plenty of detail on the US shopping experience, where and how to shop, the key differences by food group, holiday-specific food shopping, suggested alternatives to British favorites and ways to obtain the things-you-just-can’t-do-without! There is a particular emphasis on easing the transition for families with children, with kid-friendly favorites included and a whole chapter on babies and kids. There is also a chapter for people with restricted diets.
Usefully, the author has included a couple of suggested shopping lists… one to help the newly arrived expat survive the first few days in temporary accommodation, and a more detailed list to help restock your pantry with the things you need!
