The UK is a country, once ruled half the world. One of the few "shortcomings" of the rich cultural heritage of the country is the local gastronomy, devoid of any frills. British food is simple and nutritious. Of course, she has a sub: English, Welsh, Scottish, Northern Irish, Anglo-Indian, Gibraltar. They all differ from each other and have their own unique recipes.
It is worth noting that the British like nobody's paying attention to Breakfast. It can be described as extremely rich. Aperitif morning meal is tea. Followed by a bowl of porridge from oatmeal and cream that is padded with fried eggs, sausages and bacon, toast, white beans with tomatoes. All washed down with a Cup of coffee or juice.
A special place in the UK takes the tea. 17:00 — time traditional tea party. This tradition appeared in the XIX century.
