"Two nations divided by a common language" was never more true than in cookery books! Self raising flour versus all purpose flour, cornflour versus corn starch, cup measurements, etc., ect., all throw British cooks (and presumably American ones transplanted over here) into conniptions to say nothing of the miles that I've tramped through the length and breadth of the British Isles looking for clear corn syrup and unsweetened shredded coconut which no longer seems to exist over here. Ina Garten has a lot to answer for, she sa' darkly!
