It has been drummed into us from an early age that the most important meal of the day is your breakfast. It’s a sacred time of the day in a lot of cultures – we eat our first food of a new day, and “break” our “fast” from the previous night!
All over the world, breakfast is a very important tradition. In some societies, missing a meal during the day is fine, as long as it’s not the breakfast.
Depending on where you are either travelling or living in the world, what’s for breakfast will differ greatly. In some countries, a breakfast is usually savoury. In others it can range from sweet foods, to a light meal or a big filling meal that will keep you going for hours. It all depends on what culture you’re immersed in.
Here are a few examples of the different breakfast foods from around the world:
Italy: The Italians love their cappuccinos and they religiously have one along with a type of croissant(called a brioche). This type of breakfast is usually eaten at the bar. In the home, breakfast is biscuits and milky coffee for the majority of Italians.
Turkey: A Kahvalti tabagi(breakfast plate) is served up here, which includes lashings of cheese, butter, tomatoes, olives and cucumber. This is usually accompanied by bread and jam to complete the meal.
Argentina: A typical Argentinian breakfast is not very different from an Italian one, where coffee and a type of croissant is typically served up.
Russia: A popular breakfast serving in Russia includes steaming hot tea, black bread, pickles, kasha(cereal) and fried eggs.
America: Eggs, cereal, toast, coffee, bacon and fruit juice all make up an American style breakfast, although there can be a wide variety of foods eaten in some parts of the country.
Germany: Waking up in Germany, and you can smell fresh break rolls with ham or sausage on the side, complete with soft boiled eggs and coffee.
Africa: Breakfast foods vary from region to region. Bread is the most popular food along with deep fried bean burgers which can be served in a pita type bread.
Ireland: A typical Irish fry is your main port of call here. Fried meats like sausage and bacon are always found on the breakfast plate with black and white pudding on the side. You’ll also find a fried egg there too.
Uk: In Scotland a serving of oatcakes, scones and porridge will greet you bright and early. In England, an version of the Irish fry up is up for grabs in most places.
Breakfast is a very strong ritual that is practiced the world over. The cultural diversity makes breakfast time a unique and special tradition.
