>The Full English on French TV


Still from Marie Anne’s TV- with thx!

Our family breakfast was filmed for M6 in their magazine “100%Mag”and is now on replay at http://www.m6bonus.fr.

Go and view if you want to know everything the French think of a full English breakfast!  There you can learn how to use a spurtle and make a proper Scots’ porridge. Tempted? You should be: it’s delicious and nutritionally very sound – they’ve even brought in a nutritionist to explain – told you!

Make your porridge with three parts water to one part rolled oats and a pinch of salt. Cook it on low heat while stirring until it coats the back of the spoon. Serve hot with a dash of single cream.
Offer sugar, honey, raisins, cinnamon, maple syrup, grated apple and lots of other stuff your guests can choose from and then make their own scrumptious version…
I like mine with agave syrup and half a grated apple, sprinkled with cinnamon.

Of course, in the course of the filming, I HAD to mention Marmite : love it or hate it but try it!
You’ll be a true anglophile when you do… I love it over a scrap of butter on a dry toast. It’s also nice with cheeses like cheddar.
