These are in most uk supermarkets: http://www.pura.co.uk/speciality.asp You can substitute with marg with varying success, dependant on what percentage is actually fat.

thanks mr flibble - i didn't think i would be able to do a straight substitution. recipes usually say things for a reason!

i'm guessing pure isn't high enough in fat? have to think of something else for dinner then :)
