Food from Vacation

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.

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.

That was one bigass hamburger. I wonder what that costs. I'm not keen on animals in bars. I've seen it around my neck of the woods and I don't like the thought of hair everywhere.

Nice scone too. I make them for the Mrs every now and then and I make a bastardized Devonshire cream to go with them. I haven't done it in a while, maybe in a couple of weeks. Thanks for sharing the porn.

I thought they just ate meat pie.
