What thanksgiving ingredients can't be found in London?

Jump to last reply

I'm traveling to London next week to visit DS who there as an exchange student this fall semester. He plans (with friends) to cook a big Thanksgiving dinner, and wants me to bring whatever I can. So ... what can he NOT buy in London (Kensington area) from the list below? And where should he go to buy the things he can? (Not gonna bring it all; I want a strategy.)

Canned pumpkin
Pumpkin pie spice
Evaporated milk
Crisco (solid vegetable shortening)
Canned cranberries
Fresh cranberries
Sweet potatoes/yams
Candy corn candies
Poultry spice
Turkey flavor gravy
Turkey (I'm not bringing one, though!)
A foil pie pan.
A foil roaster pan.

And, while we're on the topic: What's in the theaters this month that he might enjoy? I'm thinking War Horse, maybe? Or One Man Two Guv'nors?
