Full English Breakfast



 

LEVEL A.2 - B.1

 

ang_14

One of the great British traditions is the Full English Breakfast. It's a meal that will give you enough energy for the whole day. In fact, you may spend all day trying to digest it because it is certainly enormous.

You can eat a Full English in many cafes but you are most likely to eat one if you stay in a B&B - Bed and Breakfast.

In a bed and breakfast you will get a room and breakfast, included in the price. Everybody does it slightly differently but in general, the main ingredients are as follows: egg, (usually fried although the ones in the picture are scrambled) bacon which is in strips called rashers, sausage, tomato, mushrooms, baked beans and fried bread. There are many more possible additions such as black pudding made from pig's blood which isn't everybody's cup of tea! Oh, I nearly forgot, a cup or mug of strong tea or coffee, if you insist.

It sounds very filling, doesn't it? However, that's only part of the meal! Normally, it's a three course affair which starts with fruit juice and cereal; sometimes just corn flakes but often there's a wide choice. After the eggs and bacon you can finish off with toast and marmalade made from oranges or limes. Not to be outdone, the Irish, Scots and Welsh all have their own variations which they will tell you are just as good, if not better. Well' I'm exhausted after such a big breakfast; I think I need to go and lie down!

 

From the text, and your own knowledge of food, match up in pairs, these two sets of words:

lime                                        tea

rasher                                     bread

slice                                        egg

mug                                        fruit juice

bowl                                        beans

glass                                       pudding

bed                                         bacon

One of the finest British traditions is the Full English Breakfast. It's a meal that will set you up for the day. In fact you may spend all day trying to digest it because it is certainly substantial.

You can eat a Full English in many cafes but you are most likely to eat one if you stay in a B&B - Bed and Breakfast.

A bed and breakfast is a small, privately run establishment offering a room with breakfast included in the price. All hosts have their own special recipe but generally, the main ingredients are as follows: egg, (usually fried although the ones in the picture are scrambled) Some accommodating patrons will offer poached or boiled also. Bacon is an essential element which comes in strips called rashers. Sausage, tomato, mushrooms, baked beans and fried bread all contribute to the ensemble. A good dollop of brown sauce doesn't go a miss either. There are many more possible additions such as black pudding made from pig's blood which isn't everybody's cup of tea! Oh yes, all washed down with a cup or mug of strong tea or coffee, if you insist.

It sounds very filling, doesn't it? However, that's only half the story! Normally, it's a three course affair which commences with fruit juice and cereal; sometimes just corn flakes but often there's a wide choice. You could have a healthy bran based option or muesli. After the eggs and bacon you can round off with toast and marmalade made from oranges or limes. Not to be outdone, the Irish, Scots and Welsh all have their own variations which they will tell you are just as good, if not better. These often include porridge, kippers or even seaweed! (Yuk!) Well' I'm exhausted after such a big breakfast; I think I need to go and lie down!

One of the finest British traditions is the Full English Breakfast. It's a meal that will set you up for the day if you are not poleaxed by its sheer indigestibility. You can eat it anywhere from the roughest greasy spoon to a most highfalutin, posh nosh eatery such as Claridges or The Dorchester but your most likely encounter with the monster meal will occur in a humble B&B.

A bed and breakfast is a small, privately run establishment offering a room with breakfast thrown in. All hosts have their own foibles but generally, the main ingredients are as follows: egg, (usually fried, although the ones in the picture are scrambled) Some accommodating patrons will offer poached or boiled (accompanied by soldiers, of course!). Danish, smoked or streaky bacon is centre stage coming in strips called rashers. Sausage, tomato, mushrooms, baked beans and fried bread all vie for room on the crowded plate. A good dollop of brown sauce doesn't go a miss either. There are many more possible embellishments such as black pudding made from pig's blood which isn't everybody's cup of tea! Oh yes, you can quench your thirst with a pot of strong tea or coffee, if you prefer.

Are you bloated just thinking about it? We've barely started! Customarily, it's a three course affair which commences with fruit juice and cereal; Corn flakes are the norm but often there's a wide choice including healthy bran, muesli, fruit and yoghurt. This might appease yor guilt if you're counting the calories.  If you're still peckish after the eggs and bacon, you can consume innumerable rounds of toast accompanied by marmalade or jam. Not to be outdone, the Irish, Scots and Welsh all have their own variations which they will insist are just as good, if not better. These often include porridge, kippers or even seaweed! (Yuk!) Well' I'm wiped out after such a formidable feast; I think I need to go and lie down!

3) Low quality cafe           

4) Provide you with all you need
