«British Food »
Although Britain is quite a small country, it offers a wide choice of food and drink .
The types of food people eat have changed a lot over the years for several reasons. People have come to Britain from different parts of the world , bringing their favourite food with them and often opening restaurants.
British people have travelled to other countries and brought new foods back home.
And today big supermarket companies can buy food from all over the world and sell it while it is still good to eat.
About 5% of people in Britain today do not eat any meat , about 10% do not eat red meat , and most people say they eat less meat now than in the past.
If a food is suitable for vegetarians, the packet often has the letter “V” on it, and vegetarian meals on a menu often have the “V” next to them to help people choose what to eat.
Some people like to ‘go to work on an egg’ – they eat an egg for breakfast before going to work.
But many more breakfast on cereal – often cornflakes – while others have toast with butter and marmalade .
And, whatever they eat, most people drink tea or coffee .
Traditional English breakfast
At weekends many people have a more traditional, cooked breakfast .
If you stay in a hotel or a ‘B&B’ (Bed and Breakfast), you can have a breakfast like this.
Some people have their biggest meal in the middle of the day and some have it in the evening, but most people today have a small mid-day meal – usually sandwiches , and perhaps some crisps and some fruit .
The evening meal
The evening meal is usually called ‘tea’ or ‘dinner’ . A traditional British dinner is meat and two vegetables.
The most popular meats are chicken , beef (from a cow), pork (from a pig) and lamb (from a young sheep).
Vegetables grown in Britain, like potatoes, carrots, peas, cabbage and onions , are very popular, but today you can buy vegetables from many countries all through the year.
Two favourite meals with children are fish fingers and chips, and baked beans on toast .
Baked beans, first sold in Boston, USA, but now very popular in Britain, are cheap to buy and quick to heap up. There are several different kinds, and they are eaten at almost any time – for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
Fish fingers and chips
Beans on toast
Three traditional British meals are: bangers, beans and mash (sausages, baked beans and mashed potato) , stew (meat cooked with lots of vegetables) , and the Sunday roast .
Sunday is a day when many families like to enjoy a big meal together.
They usually have a big piece of meat which is roasted (cooked in the oven for about two hours) with potatoes .
Beef is eaten with hot white horseradish sauce , pork with sweet apple sauce , and lamb with green mint sauce - perhaps made with mint grown in the garden.
After dinner, people eat dessert – something sweet like fruit, chocolate cake, or apple pie .
Many people do not have time to cook traditional food today , so they buy food which is ready to eat or quick to make, but visitors to Britain often want to try ‘typical’ British food.
The best place to go is usually a pub and many pubs have a notice outside saying: ‘ home cooked food ’.
And where do people eat their food when they are at home?
Breakfast is usually a quick meal, eaten in the kitchen .
Lunch is often eaten at school or work .
Dinner may be eaten in the kitchen, the dining-room , or the living-room – often in front of the television!
Eating out and eating outside
Going to a restaurant for a meal, instead of eating at home, is called ‘eating out’ .
Only a few years ago this was too expensive for most people; today the British do it a lot more often and there are many different kinds of places to go .
Walk through any town centre today and you will find coffee shops where you can buy a drink and perhaps a sandwich or cake ; snack-bars where you can get light meals ; and waiter-service restaurants where someone takes your order and brings the food to your table .
Schools, colleges, companies etc. usually have a self-service restaurant called a cafeteria where you buy your food and take it back to your table .
An evening meal in a restaurant usually has three courses .
The first course is quite a small one called a starter .
It may be something like a soup or salad or some sea-food .
The next course is the main course and is the biggest of the three.
This is usually meat or fish with vegetables , or vegetarian food .
The last course is either something sweet :
a dessert , like fruit , cake , or a piece of pie
The last course is either something sweet :
or a cheese plate , which pieces of different cheeses with biscuits and grapes . Some people have both!
The meal usually finishes with tea or coffee and perhaps a mint chocolate .
All three courses can be hot or cold , and if the main meal comes with potatoes you can choose which kind you would like.
With beef and sometimes fish , you are asked how you would like it cooked: well-done ( cooked for a long time ), medium , or rare ( not cooked for long ).
People often take their own food to a park or a beach, and sit on the grass or the sand. Picnics like this may be very simple – just some sandwiches , crisps and hot tea – or a bit more special , with smoked fish , strawberries and champagne .
