Food and meals
For many people in this country food, eating, sometimes also cooking is a pleasure. On the whole we eat more than the British or Americans do and our food is less healthy. The Czechs are used to eating many floury, sweet and fatty meals, such as dumplings, pastry (cakes, sweets), fat pork and sausages. Our food should consist of more vegetables, fruit, lean meat, poultry and fish which supply our bodies with more vitamins and minerals.
The British have five or six meals a day: breakfast, elevenses (a morning snack), lunch, tea, dinner and later perhaps supper. They like to begin the day with a cup of tea in bed early morning. Then they have breakfast. The British don´t like to hurry. The English breakfast starts with a glass of juice, cereals, usually cornflakes with milk, muesli, or porridge.
Traditional English breakfast is quite rich and hot. Except cereals ham or bacon and eggs , sausages, grilled tomatoes, beans in tomato sauce are very popular. This will be followed by toasts and butter and jam or marmalade( which is made from oranges)and tea or coffee.
Sundays are reserved for their big breakfast which is called “brunch” – breakfast and lunch together.
