Sadly, there isn't anywhere in Hungary called Gulyás (that's goulash to you), although it is a not uncommon surname.

Though there is a Tokaj.

Is the Babycham factory still in Frome Babycham?

It could be a weekend trial trip

Happy to help

Then there's Gaisburger Marsch:


which is one of the most horrible things I've ever eaten. Indiviually, the ingredents are fine (apart, maybe, from the gristly beef) but they boil them all up together and serve them a-slop with the scalding fluid. Gaisburger? Im Arsch.
I dare eat all that may become a man.

But hold the oysters.

There are loads of Microbreweries In Denmark, that uses local names.
I goes for some ice creams too.
Cheese with local names are rarely made there now. Arla owns most dairys now.

English breakfast and Welsh cakes provide broad emergency targets to stay on topic with if more specific plans go south one day.
French bread too.

Don't forget the fries!

(Yes, I know, the British say 'chips', but they're wrong.)

Like several things the UK calls "French", they're Belgian.

Kissing?

Letters?

Yes, French kissing can lead to use of French letters.

Point of order, though: French fries is not a UK English term, it's pure American and as far as I can tell, only came to the UK with the arrival of McDonald's in the 1970s. Wimpy menus from the 1960s refer to 'fried potatoes'.


ETA correcting myself: I looked this up out of interest, and it seems 'French-fried potatoes' appeared in an English cookery book in the mid-19th century - when 'French-fried' was a synonym for 'deep-fried' with no specific reference to the shape of the potatoes so cooked. Wiki reckons the origin is disputed, with both Belgium and France claiming ownership. Intriguing!

As a resident of Alsace, surely the only things you ever eat are tarte flambée and choucroute?

(I went to an Alsace-themed restaurant in London once, started by the same people behind ersatz-Belgian chain Belgo, and those were the only two things on the menu. The food was OK, iirc, but the most notable thing about that meal was that it ended in A&E when my companion, wearing open-toed sandals, cut her foot badly on the edge of the metal stairs.)

Could be worse - you could live in the neighbouring départment and be forced to live on a diet of quiche lorraine.

You can buy rather similar cheeses with rather different geographical names, depending on the location you choose. Is there much taste difference 'twixt Emmenthal, Svenbo and Leerdamer cheese?

If you ever get the chance to eat Polish cheeses you will discover that all those and several more differ only in the precise shades of yellow.  :hand: :sick:

As you have now specified nice places, I will refrain from mentioning Barnsley Chops.

How about York Ham?

Ahem...

It's Budweiser Budvar, which means "Budvar from Budweis" - Budweis being the German name for the Czech city of České Budějovice.

Brand names are cheating though,* as so many are named after places they're founded, especially beers. Though not all are still brewed in the same place, of course.

Up until, IIRC, 1990 you could have travelled to Greece and eaten a peanut-infused Mars Bar, but no-one knows where Snickers is.

But Trump wants to head for Mars. And if that won't get rid of him, there's a lunar crater called McDonald.

Where booze is concerned I'm happy to relax the rules and extend town boundaries slightly.

(E.g. Over Christmas I've extended the Calvados region's boundaries into NW Hampshire)
