Craving wings and the best place to get them is from my own kitchen. Thing is, I need Frank's RedHot to make them right. I've checked the local supermarkets in my area but no luck. Nothing on the online grocery sites either. Has anyone noticed it anywhere?
Might be a stretch but a place like Whole Foods(Kensington High Street) I think might have it. There used to be a place in Chelsea that sold American foods.
What part of town are you in? areas with large numbers of Americans you'll have a better chance of finding it.
Since you're living in London no doubt you'll be getting lots of visitors. Have the next one bring over a bottle or two. Safely packed in the checked luggage.
It might be easier just to make up the recipe yourself. Get the list of ingredients (can't be that many) and make the sauce from scratch.
I used to like the sauce myself but then I discovered Texas Pete...
Haha. I'm a New Yorker in Oxfordshire with the same problem. You can sometimes get it at selfridges food hall, but it's also available mail order from a few places: http://www.americansweets.co.uk/frank...
Wow, now I'm fiending for wings.
P.S. - Regarding the comment below about making it yourself, normally I'm all for that, but hot sauces like this are all about the process, i.e., fermentation/cure. etc., so if the real thing is available, I wouldn't attempt to make them any more than I would attempt to "make" prosciutto de parma or armagnac.
