Full British Breakfast 1300

Food:1300s
More of a Tradition than an invention. But this Food item, aka the Fry Up, is very British and very popular and has regional variations.
  • “To eat well in England you should have breakfast three times a day.” W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965)
The full breakfast is a centuries old British breakfast tradition dating back at least to the 1300's, just about when the British said goodbye to the French, 'Au Revoir'.
