During our September classes we were exploring British cuisine. What is typical to eat in the UK, when and how? What dishes are known all over the world? Fish and Chips, Bangers and Mash, Sunday Roast, Toad in the Hole and others are new terms that we have learned along with new words related to food preparation, going to restaurant and eating itself. But what is the first dish that comes to your mind when you think of England? Full English breakfast! And the best way to get to know this famous dish? Prepare it yourself!
In our English class on Thursday, September 21st, we combined the two groups from our class into one and started cooking in the staff room. We bought all the necessary ingredients like sausages, beans and toasts. We had home-grown eggs which two of our classmates brought right from their homes, we also had home-gown tomatoes from the garden of Ms. Vančáková. And then we started cooking. We grilled sausages, fried eggs in a pan and, of course, drank real English tea with milk, which was provided by Mrs. Fritzlová Frecerová. The whole class participated in the food preparation, and maybe that's why everyone liked it so much at the end of the lesson.
But we weren't just the ones who tasted our version of English Breakfast. A native Englishman, Dean Curry, was also invited to our lesson. He enjoyed it too. He told us interesting facts about cooking in his country and how this typical breakfast is eaten on weekends in England. We came very close to the original and we all left the class satisfied with our work and with full bellies.
