6. Conclusion : Differences and opinions.
The British people don’t have the same dishes as in France. For exemple a typical British breakfast ( between 7:00 and 9:00 ) is composed of eggs,bacon,sausages,fried bread, mushrooms, and baked beans whereas in France, we have only cereals,toasts,milk and chocolate in general.
Personnally I prefer typical French breakfasts because in the morning, I don’t eat a lot of food.
The typicals British sunday lunch ( between12:00 and 1:30 ) is composed of roast lamb, chicken and bacon, yorkshire pudding, fish and chips, toad-in-the-hole, roast beef … I don’t like the British traditional Sunday lunch. I think they are strange, I prefer French lunches.
The typical British dinners ( sometimes called supper, between 6:30 and 8:00 ) are composed of carrots, Brussel sprouts and roast potatoes. A lot of people in Britain eat Curry.
