Lunch Around the World
Uninspired for lunch ideas? To get your stomach grumbling again, here’s an insight to lunch breaks around the world.
With the unpredictable weather a Brit’s lunch is weather dependent. During the cold winter months, a nice warm soup is desired to keep warm. For those not so cold days, a good old sandwich! Completed with a cup of tea or coffee.
American’s typically feast out on pizza during their lunch break with a fizzy drink on the side, followed by something sweet.
Part of Germany’s food culture, the currywurst sausage is a typical German afternoon meal. Fries on the side with an apple, water or coffee.
Popular in Austria is fried meat with salad and potatoes dressed in herbs.
In Italy a shot of espresso with a pasta dish served with salad, olives, tomatoes and bread is a popular choice.
In France a ham baguette, a slice of apple pie and a glass of water is a well-known choice for an afternoon meal.
Cheese is very popular in the Netherlands, Gouda being the most widely produced. A popular lunchtime meal would be a Gouda cheese sandwich with apples and grapes.
Much like pizza, pide (flatbread) is a popular Turkish meal, topped with spinach and feta or for the meat lovers beef or lamb.
