hey guys :wavey:

I have to make this teaching portfolio for English, and one of the assignments is to find 20 pictures of typical English and American food...

I looked on the internet and found some (well duh :p) but the main problem is that they have to be large enough to put on a blackbaord for instance, so that a whole class can see it. (like A4, or at least something like that...)

was hoping some of you would be willing to help me :o

(or turn it into a game if you like, the more pictures, the merrier! :cool: )

:wavey: :kiss:

My favourite- The Full English :drool:

(I think this isn't a proper Full English because I have never had hash browns with mine!)

Also, I can't find a picture of Kebab mean & chips with loads of burger sauce. It's the perfect thing to eat after you have been clubbing!

while some of you non-Americans might be suprised, we all don't stuff our faces with fast food 3 meals a day, 7 days a week. i think i get fast food maybe twice a month. but i would say the only classic american food i can think of off the top of my head is applepie, pancakes with maple sryup, baked beans, chicken noodle soup, and coke. but everywhere around the country has different speicalties.

Yes, if by "typical" you mean the most popular dish, it would be the curry surely? Never heard of fish and chips with curry sauce with mushy peas and I've lived here all of my life. Must be a northern thing.

You must be joking, or living in a hole, surely? I live in the midlands and we have it, my friends are southerners and have it.

If you are referring to American foods, consider hot dogs. I don't know if they are popular anywhere else but in America.

Also, in order to find anything specifically "American," one would have to look @ the ethnic minorities. Because America is comprised of so many races and ethnicities, the source of the representation can be different.

For instance, I doubt if there would be any culture in the US if it weren't for Pop Culture. The culture is developed from the different races.

Therefore, "American" foods are probably popular all over the world:

spaghetti
collard greens
hot dogs
fried fish
fried chicken
bagels
curry chicken with rice and peas
Budweiser
Coca Cola
pancakes
fresh water
french fries
Belgian waffles

Chicken Tikka Masala

Chicken tikka masala still rules the Brit palate!




London, June 3 (ANI):Indian Chicken Tikka masala is still Britain's favourite ethnic dish followed by Chinese cuisine.

Of the three ethnic foods loved by Britons, Indian including vindaloo, naan bread and tikka masala is number one, with 44 per cent of the market. Chinese dishes make up 31 per cent and Mexican 25.

However Mexican food is now fast finding favour with the Brits and if the trend continues then it will overtake Chinese food to become the nation's second favourite ethnic dish after Indian.

Sales of spicy goods from the Central American country, which also include tortillas, refried beans, fajitas, chilli con carne and quesadillas, shot up 10 per cent in the last year.

While oriental food such as sweet-and-sour sauce, spring rolls and prawn crackers fell by one per cent, according to market analysts TNS.

"If the current trend continues, Mexican food will have overtaken Chinese as the nation's second favourite ethnic food by 2007," market analyst Rachel Argyle was quoted by the Mirror, as saying. (ANI)
