Over here in the UK we call it cornflour but over in the states it's known as corn starch.

Good to know these things, especially when buying any cookery books :)

They are fun, your right. We call them erasers over here in the UK but some do call them rubbers  Lol

It's like over here we say arse but in the US, they call it ass but they both have the same meaning.

Exchanging recipes can be frustrating - I remember trying to give a friend in the UK my recipe for Sour Cream Pound Cake - it took us about sixty messages and we still have no idea how similar the cakes are.  LOL

Easier to follow ingredients and directions out of a book. There's always google search to find the differences used in various countries Lol

We call a sidewalk a kerb, my cousins from Oregon and I love to laugh about these things.

So true, I'm from the UK and we do call it a kerb Lol
