Most Britons like to start their day off heartily with the famous, cholesterol-filled, meat-anchored English breakfast, served in most B&Bs across the country. The best native dishes for lunch or dinner are roasts beef, lamb, and Wiltshire hams and puddings, including the standard Yorkshire. The ploughman’s lunch, served in pubs, consists of cheese, bread, and pickles. Fish and chips (french fries) are traditionally drowned in malt vinegar and salt. To escape English food, try Chinese, Greek, or Indian cuisine. British tea refers to both a drink and a social ritual. The refreshment is served strong and milky. An afternoon tea might include cooked meats, salad, sandwiches, and pastries. Cream tea, a specialty of Cornwall and Devon, includes toast, shortbread, crumpets, scones, jam, and clotted cream.
