” Ah, English cuisine! At first, we think it’s shit, and in the end, we regret that it’s not », these are the words that Jacques Chirac had pronounced, on the occasion of a Franco-British summit in London. If English cuisine has such a bad reputation, it is because the French imagine that it boils down to jelly fluorescent lamps and dishes dripping with sauce and soft bread. However, this is not the case with the english breakfastswhich are among the most popular in the world.
