    I prefer British food; there's nothing like a proper sausage roll for me. Scotch eggs done right are great as well.

    Personally, I do not make German food at home so much (other than honey-mustard pretzels and hamburgers), but buy copious amounts of it. As for British food, I get it from others and make it at home from scratch as well more often. When I don't have one, the other is equally satisfying.

    I like both but I think British food is a much more varied and healthier mix of various countryfoods. Like Scandinavian food I guess, I tend to associate German cuisine with a lot of meat-heavy dishes, and plenty of dairy. I like it occasionally, but I think the healthiest cuisines are those that use less dairy, and revolve around having vegetables with some meat, not a lot of meat with a few vegetables. Japanese food, Mediterranean food and Indian food are very healthy cuisines I would say. German and Scandinavian food is probably only healthy at all because it uses a lot of potato to balance out the meats.

    I could also be talking nonsense though, so people with a deeper knowledge of these cuisines feel free to correct me. That said, traditional British food is extremely underappreciated all the same.

    [Staff note: discussion on tradition vs. health has been split to this thread.]

    The climate is usually very changing in countries around the North Sea.

    I can not immagine that the folks grew much crops in ancient times
    because of the unstable summers and harvests.

    The folks likely consumed much meat , for grass for cattle grows always.
    The potatoe is imported and grows on sandy soil better than cabbage it seems.

    Schleswig-Holstein has a sandy middle back called 'Geest' ,
    while the western part of this state is black marshes soil,
    and the eastern part has also a share of rich black soil.


    From de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schleswigsche_Geest

    People do not need to work physically hard anymore,
    and in the short time of summer, one does not need to
    eat that heavy anymore.

    That goes for me as well. Love a full English breakfast.
    However, don't look down on the German breakfast. It is, compared to a Dutch breakfast, which is basically bread with cheese and a mug with ridiculous strong coffee, really a grotesque and tasty experience. All that 'schinken', 'bierwurst' and 'gelbwurst'....

    As for food, I think the German and the English are..hmm... Ok.
    But hey, it is'nt Dutch. So both on a well earned second place.

    Ah, the famous Dutch cuisine, Bûter, brea, en griene tsiis? Think I'll give it a miss.

    By the way, only yesterday I told Chlod "if only Donnie were here, then I could troll him with some Dutch bike joke". Seems like I conjured you!

    I'm more of a fan of German food because I've grown up with it and it's all I've known. In fact many items on those list are also part of the local German bill of fare - Schnitzel, Schweinshaxe, Bratwurst, Sauerkraut Lebkuchen, Apfelstrudel...

    I've not really experienced British food enough to make a real judgment, but I've heard the reputation isn't as good as the German cuisine. However, I've recently read an article from a Swiss publication about the British cuisine being underrated. The author is a Swiss expat living in England, so probably a person who has tasted both cuisines. She says that ‘British food is much better than its reputation, especially when it has a modern touch’, and enjoys the English pubs, local ales, the many international restaurants and the beer. She mentioned a small ‘barrack restaurant’ in Tynemouth, which does not sell traditional fish and chips, but prepares simple delicious fish creations with local fresh fish and seafood. Here the article: ‘British food is much better than its reputation’

    There's serious potential for "fusion cuisine" between British and German food. Oh, wait a minute! That's American food!

    I didn't know it at the time, but I grew up on German (mainly, and some British types) food made with American ingredients. We didn't call them by the German names, it's was just the food that my Grandmother and Mother cooked (and not very well, I might add).

    Quote Originally Posted by Siebenbürgerin View Post

    Years ago, before food became a *thing* like it is today, I had a relative that spent a lot of time in England and Scotland, I once asked him what he thought of the best British food. He replied - "The best British is actually French".
