Where to get that full English breakfast
This week's column is by Editor-in-Chief Inez Sharp.
How long will it take for British food to finally shake off its terrible reputation? I know, I know: you once went on a school exchange visit to England and all you had to eat for two weeks were soggy chips and baked beans.
Well, of course there is bad food in Britain — just as you can find inferior ingredients and poor cooking all over the world — but you'll also discover a lot of excellent and very tasty meals being served in homes and restaurants across the UK.
What more proof do you need of this than the current craze for traditional British dishes that is sweeping Germany? It was unthinkable a few years ago, but now you can have an authentic full English breakfast in Berlin, scones with real Devon clotted cream for afternoon tea in Munich and a pub dinner in Frankfurt.
We look into this trend in the January Spotlight, as we investigate where the best British eateries are and what they are serving. To find out more, read our food feature, "Best of British". And if you want to know how to order your full English correctly, here's Monty Python with some useful instructions.
