LONDON — Three hundred years ago, when America was a part of the British colonies and tea had yet to be shipped to Boston harbor, the legendary London food emporium Fortnum & Mason was opening its doors on Piccadilly.
It sold such goodies as butter, fruitcake, stuffed roast chicken, cheese and meat pies. Thanks to its co-founder William Fortnum's position as footman in the household of Queen Anne, the grocer even supplied goods to the royal family's kitchens.
