The English have the worst food combinations, sorry to say.
I'm still traumatized from it, spending my time in summer
school in England, many many moons ago.
It's funny, reading about all the different types of food that people eat.
What seems odd to one, will seem normal to another. Baked beans on Toast (Piffka, I dont like it on dry toast...butter every time) is a quick "anytime meal" in Britain, cheap, hot and nutritionally healthy. Most Brits will have this at least once a week.
A GOOD Brit breakfast (for blokes maybe more than women) would be bacon (2), eggs(2), sausage(2), beans and black pudding, served with a large mug of tea or coffee and a couple of slices of toast. If eaten in the right surroundings (old fashioned style cafe, pronounced "caff", with sixties music playing in the background, big bottle of HP Brown sauce and a good newspaper to read), most British men would be in their element.
I go into cafes with my brother in France (rural) and see people starting their day with a bowl of Onion soup. Some even pour a glass of red wine into it..... Beans on Toast odd?
In Hungary, we sat there at breakfast one morning at our friends house, and were served various cold meats set in aspic jelly, straight from the fridge. We ate this politely, with hot chocolate served out of a teapot. After ten days, we returned to England and virtually dived headfirst into a salad, because we had not eaten tomatoes, lettuce or any other salad veg in all the time we were there.
Different combinations of food are eaten from one Country to another. It may seem odd for me to eat cold snot with bits of meat in it for breakfast, but in a perverse way, that part of a foreign trip is one of the most enjoyable. Maybe it makes me appreciate the little things of "Home".
Personally, I will try anything....even refried beans (sounds like something that would give you food poisoning), because I normally find that I enjoy it. Maybe not the cold snot though.
