Auntie posted some food shots recently. And then we had a bit of a discussion how food in Europe differs from food in the U.S. So here are a few examples of standard restaurant fare in the UK (and France) for your viewing pleasure. Will discuss as we go along.
One thing you don’t see here in the U.S. --- pub cats!
Some sort of yummy fresh salad. Very fresh and local down to the greens and tomatoes.
Again, fresh fresh fresh on the veggies, eggs and seafood.
Okay, I will admit to the fried “fruitti de mer” …fruit of the sea.
Dessert equals: Fresh razzies, fresh oranges, capuccino and a cookie/biscuit.
Or this. Or some of these below:
One of the best mid-meal snacks EVER? Cream tea. Thin slap of jam on a proper scone with a huge dollop of clotted cream. I could live on this.
Something else you don’t see every day – a WATER WELL inside the dining room of the pub. Yep, I took a pic because who would believe it?
Some main courses:
Fresh fish and greens over pasta.
Sunday pork (I believe) over fresh greens and tatties with carrots.
ABOVE: OUT OF THIS WORLD DIVINE.
Outside the Jamie Oliver restaurant in Brighton. Where the hamburgers look like this:
But fresh fruit is everywhere, very available, on the street and you don’t have to go looking for it.
