Look and name the dishes. Speak on how often you have them in your house.

Traditional British Meals

In the morning an Englishman has his favourite breakfast of cornflakes with milk and sugar or porridge followed by fried bacon and eggs. Breakfast is generally a bigger meal than they have on the Continent. Some marmalade might be spread on the toast and butter. Perhaps some fruit will also be eaten. For a change one can have cold ham. or perhaps fish, some coffee and a roll.

The main meal of the day is called dinner. Dinner is eaten either in the middle of the day or in the evening. If it is eaten in the evening (about 7 pm), the midday meal is called lunch (about 1 pm). If dinner is in the middle of the day, the evening meal is called supper.

The usual midday meal consists of two courses — a meat course accompanied by plenty of vegetables. After it comes a sweet pudding or some stewed fruit. Most Englishmen like what they call good plain food. Usually they have beefsteaks, chops, roast beef and fried fish and chips. They are not overfond of soup, remarking that it leaves them without free room for the more important meat course.

Read the job advertisements quickly. Which advertisement (A-E) mentions:

  • all the meal times in Britain
  • the ingredients of Christmas Pudding

Afternoon tea one can hardly call a meal. This may mean a cup of tea and a cake taken in the sitting-room or at work. For many Englishmen it is a social occasion when people often come in for a chat over their cup of tea. But some people like to have the so-called 'high tea' which is quite a substantial meal. They have it between five and six o'clock. In a well-to-do family[1] it will consist of ham, tongue and tomatoes and salad, or kipper, or tinned salmon, or sausage, with strong tea, bread and butter, then stewed fruit, or a tin of pears, apricot or pineapple with cream and custard, and pasties, or a bun. The evening meal goes under various names: tea, 'high tea', dinner or supper (as we have mentioned already) depending upon its size and the social position of those eating it.

It is well-known that every national cuisine has got its famous specialties. It isn't possible to imagine some holidays and celebrations without them. For example, Christmas Pudding for British cuisine means very much. Some English people could dispense[2] with the turkey and goose, but a Christmas dinner in Britain without a traditional Christmas pudding would be strange indeed!

a cuisine [kwi'zi:n]
a course [ko:s]
an occasion [a'kei3n]
a specialty ['spejalti]
to consist (of) [kan'sist]
to include [in'klu:d]
to stew [stju:]

The Christmas pudding is a direct descendant[3] of the old time plum porridge, beloved by English people in the Middle Ages.

Nowadays, in addition to the basic mixture of flour, bread-crumbs and eggs, the ingredients of Christmas pudding include raisins, currants, candied peel, chopped almonds and walnuts, grated carrot and a good measure of brandy, whisky or old ale[4].

In many households the mixing of the pudding is quite a ceremony with all the members of the family taking turns to stir and make a whisk.

After being boiled for several hours, the pudding is stored until the time comes for heating it on Christmas Day when it is brought to the table on a large dish, big, round and dark-brown. The Christmas pudding is covered with white sauce burning in brandy.

Receiving each slice, the guests are warned to eat carefully because sixpenny bits, shillings, a tiny silver bell and a silver horseshoe[5] have been put in it. Those who find the 'treasure' are supposed to have money in the coming year, whoever gets the bell is to be married and the horse-shoe is the traditional sign of good luck.

1 well-to-do family — заможна сім'я
2 to dispense with [dı'spens] — обходитися (без чогось)
3 a descendant [dı'sendǝnt] — нащадок
4 ale [eıl] — пиво, ель
5 a horseshoe ['hɔ:sʃu:] — підкова
6 a liquid ['lıkwıd] — рідина

Read the article again. Copy and complete the table.

Mealtime Meal the British usually eat
1 breakfast  
2 main meal of the day

Match the words from the Word File to their definitions.

Example: An occasion is important social event or ceremony.

... is a particular style of cooking.

... is a kind of food that is always very good in a particular area (or restaurant).

  1. It is a brawn made from boiling pigs' trotters[7]. The meat is picked off the bone and the gravy sets around it into a jelly as it cools; served with horseradish or mustard.
  2. Pancakes, often made with soured milk for a lighter batter. Thinner pancakes are called nalysnyky, which are rolled and served with a stuffing, usually fruit or jam.
  3. Cabbage rolls stuffed with rice and vegetables, or possibly with spiced minced meat, and stewed slowly in the oven.
  4. Soup based on beetroot with meat and other vegetables; served with sour cream. There are many regional varieties.
  5. Pork fat no description of Ukrainian cuisine would be complete without it. Ukrainians like their pigs to be fat for it. Spices are rubbed into the skin. It's eaten in thin slices on black bread with garlic and salt. Especially delicious is the smoked version.
  6. Ravioli-like pasta stuffed with potato, cabbage, mushrooms, meat or cheese, or with cherries as a sweet dish.
  7. A domestic sausage, but it can't be called saliami. The only way to sample true home-prepared sausage is by experiencing it for yourself with the sights and smells of the markets of Ukraine.

  • What do you get if you order traditional English breakfast?
  • Do you know what people in America usually eat for Thanksgiving?
Make a list of food or dishes you associate with the countries below. Compare it with a partner.

The USA, China, France, Italy, Japan, Mexico

a) Read the information and discuss it.

— one English proverb says. There is a wide range of nutritious foods in the world. However, eating habits differ from country to country. In some societies certain foods are taboo. An eccentric millionaire once invited guests from several countries to a banquet and offered them this menu. All the foods are popular in some parts of the world, but are not eaten in others.

b) Look at the menu and answer the questions below.

  • If you had been there, which items could you have eaten?
  • Which items would you have eaten? Which items couldn't you have eaten? Why not?
  • Do you know which countries they are popular in? Would you eat them, if you were starving?
  • What unusual things are eaten in our country? Has Ukraine got a national dish? How do you make it?
a) Read the statements below. Agree or disagree.

b) Work in groups. Express your opinions.

If you ask foreigners to name some typically English dishes, they will probably say 'Fish and chips', then stop. It is disappointing, but true that, there is no tradition in England of eating in restaurants, because the food doesn't lend itself to such preparation. English cooking is found at home. So it is difficult to find a good English restaurant with reasonable prices.

In most cities in Britain you'll find Indian, Chinese, French and Italian restaurants, in London you'll also find Indonesian, Mexican, Greek... Some will say that this is because English have no 'cuisine' themselves, but this is not quite the true.

Do the project following the instructions.


Agreeing I Disagreeing
I quite agree that...
I don't think
Well, to be honest, I think...
I agree completely...
I can't agree with...
The problem is that...
I don't share that view, because...

Giving a balanced view
We could say..., but also...
On the one hand,.... On the other...
It may be true... . However, ...
It's true that..., but...
At the same time,...

Speak about food you like and dislike. Give your reasons.

Work in pairs. Ask and answer the questions.

  • an A to Z of British national cuisine

C Christmas pudding Britain It is a plum pudding which contains dried fruit, spices and often brandy. It is served as a part of Christmas dinner.


Work in pairs. Get some information and discuss it.

A paragraph is a basic unit of organisation in writing. A paragraph develops a topic. A paragraph can stand by itself or it may be a part of a longer piece of writing such as an essay. A paragraph has a very specific structure. It consists of the 3 basic parts:

2 THE BODY (supporting sentences)

The topic sentence introduces the topic (subject) of a paragraph. It may content the writers attitude, idea or opinion. In any case it should have a clear point of view.

The body of a paragraph develops the topic sentence. These sentences explain the topic by giving examples, reasons, quotations, facts, figures, statistics or the author's personal experience.

The concluding sentence indicates the end of a paragraph. It can paraphrase the topic sentence in different words or summarise the main points of the paragraph. It is very helpful to the readers. In addition to the 3 basic structural parts, a well-written paragraph must also have: unity, completeness, coherence[1] and logical ordering. There are three main types of paragraphs: narrative[2], descriptive and expository[3].

1 coherence [kǝʊ'hıǝrǝns] — послідовність
2 narrative ['nærǝtiv] — розповідний
3 expository [eks'pɒzıtǝri] — пояснювальний

Which of the following sentences would you consider to be a good/bad topic sentence. Why?

  1. Our school trip last September was a complete trouble.
  2. Only twenty tickets were sold for tonight's concerts.
  3. Secondary education in Ukraine.
  4. The legal age for driving a car should be 21 for several reasons.
  5. A good teacher has 3 important characteristics.
In pairs make complete topic sentences.

Read and identify the type of each paragraph.

Read the list of topic sentences and choose one to write a paragraph in 80-100 words. Use the appropriate type of paragraph and the corresponding type of ordering.

  1. Breakfast with the President started as a perfect day.
  2. A substantial breakfast is an essential foundation for a successful day for the Ukrainians.
  3. In recent years a number of restaurants, bars and cafés have opened in Ukraine, offering excellent food with high standards of service.
