Test your English vocabulary about food in this 'What's cooking' quiz!
Someone once said that 'the English eat to live, but the French live to eat'. For a long while Britain held lots of power in the wider world despite her food being both varied (what with imports from all round the globe), yet somehow also despised (particularly by Europeans who believed it was monotonous).
Anyway, nowadays British food in general is healthy and varied and welcomes the best of many other traditions from Europe, the Commonwealth and further afield. It's not all just fish-&-chips and curries!
How varied a diet can YOU discuss and enjoy? Let's see how strong your English is on this vital topic!
If you were thinking of 'eggs that had been beaten (or even whipped) and mixed-up out of their original shape', you meant 'scrambled' or possibly an omelette.
In theory one might try to batter an egg, but this sounds rather a strange thing to do and probably wouldn't be worth the effort in terms of producing something tasty. This may well be why it's never offered!
The other three ways of serving eggs at breakfast are very normal, along with poached and as an omelette.
