Food and Drink


What do you think people around the world have for breakfast? Now read the text and compare your answers. Breakfast around the world We asked several people what they have for breakfast and what it’s typical to eat in their countries. Here’s what they told us. “A typical Greek breakfast would be some cheese and black olives marinated in olive oil, garlic and lemon. It’s a good start to the day, with a cup of black coffee of course.” Zacharias, Greece. “A typical breakfast in Mexico is probably “huevos rancheros” (ranch-style eggs) with fried eggs, tortillas, rice, beans and chilli sauce. I really like this kind of breakfast but not every morning. Normally, I have scrambled eggs with tomatoes, tortillas and frijol beans.” Carolina, Mexico “Breakfast for me usually consists of a banana and a Greek yogurt, and sometimes I’ll add oatmeal, oh, and I can’t function properly without a cup of coffee. When I go to eat breakfast in a restaurant, I usually have eggs, toast and bacon, which is more typical.” Roberto, US “I think most people from Spain have coffee, cereal or toast, or some biscuits or a muffin for breakfast, but I don’t really have a big appetite in the morning because I have to get up really early. So, I usually have some orange juice and cereal with milk. It’s also typical here to have “churros” (fried sticks of dough).” Carmen, Spain “I’m from the Netherlands and a typical breakfast here is wholemeal bread with butter and Gouda cheese with a glass of milk. However, I usually have porridge with soy milk and some cinnamon. I also have some fruit. On special occasions we have croissants with jam, eggs, orange juice and some yoghurt with fresh fruit.” Jochem, The Netherlands “A typical breakfast here would be an English breakfast, with sausages, hash browns, bacon, fried eggs and beans, but hardly anyone I know has that in the morning. I usually start the day with some scrambled eggs and tomatoes and fresh orange juice. We have a full English breakfast on special occasions, but we usually go out for it as it’s too much hassle to make at home.” Cynthia, England “Here in South Africa my breakfast mostly consists of a cappuccino with some oats, scrambled eggs and rye toast with peanut butter. On special occasions, we have our own version of the English breakfast with scrambled eggs, rye bread, beef sausages, mushrooms and tomatoes. We love a big breakfast!” Tom, South Africa.
