A note from the Editor

Despite this being a UK food celebration week, at the time of posting this page (April 2013) as far as I am aware, the word "canned" is not a popular term used in the UK, with most people, supermarkets and grocers here still referring to these products as "tinned" foods.  I for one have always associated the word canned with the USA.
