I've two fellows coming from England to stay for a month or so. I'd like to have food they recognize in the fridge. What do people across the sea generally like for breakfast/lunch/dinner?

Admittedly they'll probably get a good introduction to Canadian food (is there such a beast? unsure.gif ) but a taste of home is all to the good.

I don't know where I could find Jaffa cakes. I'd never heard of them before reading this forum. biggrin.gif

The Full English Breakfast is a wonderful thing. Each one will take approximately a month off your life. It requires bacon and eggs (fried, poached or scrambled), and at least three of the following:

Tomatoes
Baked beans
Sausages
Black pudding
Fried bread
Toast
Boiled Eggs
White pudding

A roast, which involves some sort of roasted meat (chicken is my personal preference, but beef is very common), roasted potatoes, veg (usually boiled, pick your options from cabbage, carrots, peas, sprouts, or pretty much anything else you can boil), gravy (that's very important).

A general principle of British food is 'meat and two veg'.

Fish and chips: battered, deep fried fish and a portion of think-cut chips, none of that 'french fries' nonsense. Or 'freedom fries' either.

Badly made pizzas.

Make sure the chips are greasy, and that there's about a ton more than any sane person could actually eat! tongue.gif (if I never eat in another chippie again, it'll be too soon...I discovered in the UK that I really dislike chips)

Good cheese. I have no idea what Canadian cheese is like, but I can't look at American cheese the same way anymore. The cheddar just....isn't cheddar. It's like some weird version of double Gloucester or red Leicester. Which are okay...but I do miss mature cheddar. Wensleydale and stilton I do NOT miss, though...errgghh.

You can order stuff like hobnobs and jaffa cakes online if you really want. Along with various other things like Ribena and crazily flavored crisps (they have a lot of meat flavored crisps there....like prawn cocktail and roast chicken). Just google for it, and you should find various websites that sell UK food.

Roast chicken potato chips I can find in Canada. I'm not a fan but they are here.

If I were in Calgary I could also find a variety of sweets in a store called The British Pantry. My friend (from Poole originally) dragged me there for way, way too much sugar. I'm thinking of returning the favour for her birthday with Canadian candy. smile.gif

By fried bread at breakfast do you mean french toast? Beans? at breakfast? huh.gif

Fried bread is what it says, slices of bread, fried. Possibly in a frying pan. You can use the fat left from the meat. And yes, baked beans are part of the breakfast.

And black pudding is a must.

I'm not sure what you mean by french toast. What Americans call french toast, Brits call eggy bread. I have no idea what Canadians mean by it.

French toast = bread, dipped in egg and milk mix, and then fried. Served warm with maple syrup or fruit jam and butter. biggrin.gif

I agree! But they call that eggy bread over there.

Nooooooo - what's wrong with you people? Do you guys put syrup on everything!

Eggy bread goes with tomato ketchup. You don't add sweets to a savoury dish!!!

Noo. You add a bit of vanilla to the egg mixture, then put maple syrup or jam on when it's done. It's so clearly a sweet dish. tongue.gif

French toast with...ketchup? That's just...blasphemy! blink.gif

Firstly, adding milk to the eggs is weird.

Secondly, eggy bread is savoury. It deserves salt and pepper. It's fried eggs, people. What's next, chocolate coating the stuff?

Thirdly:

No, you have to use the fat left from the meat. Specifically, the bread should be fried in the bacon grease. Otherwise it's kind of bland, doesn't taste of much.

And, yes. Actually, breakfast is the only context I'll eat baked beans. I normally can't stand them.

I think we have discovered the difference between eggy bread and french toast. Eggy bread = greasy and savory. French toast = fluffy and sweet.

That's the conclusion I came to after Commie IMed me with expletives asking why Americans made everything sweet, anyway tongue.gif

It's not American food unless it has 2 and a half bags of sugar in it.

Best British meal. A pint of Guinness washed down with some cider. Perhaps a JD and coke for desert.
