    For those who do not know, Beef Wellington is beef steak baked in a puff pastry crust.

    Continuing the theme of local foods, I must mention Norfolk Dumplings - which is also a nickname for us locals. Thwy are not those made with suet as described in online recipes.

    It is my understanding that the term gravy can include broth, gelatin or sauce like made with flour and meat drippings. I guess the gelatin helps to keep air out of the pork pie?

    I would think the gelatin injected into pork pies is meant to keep the meat moist, I could be stretcched to ask on my weekly visit to Melton, lockdown permitting.
    Telling a 'porkie' seems to be cockney slang: pork pie - lie.

    And just to bring this back to topic, I brought a first class something or other unlimited first class travel, and they served pork pies on the train as a free refreshment. Very nice it was too.

    Certainly, my mam would pack a pork pie with the sandwiches went I went train spotting in the 1970s (and crisps!)

    Am I right in thinking that these are called "chips" in the US and elsewhere?

    That is true in the south eastern part of the USA. I can't say on the rest of the country.

    Potato and corn chips.

    Here is the weekly sale flyer from the grocery store I shop. I hope it isn't country locked.
