The Joy of Fry Ups
Yesterday Giles Coren wrote a piece in The Times about the dangers of fry ups.
"I'll tell you what's holding us back from finally getting rid of the fried English breakfast for ever: lack of education. You never see a person with a degree eating a fry-up, do you? Certainly not someone with a 2:1 or better in a humanities subject from a university founded before the invention of the iPod. That's because they are smart enough to know better. "
Well, the "educated" team at Nanny Knows Best did not sit idly by and let that one pass!
Post haste the following email was sent to Coren and The Times:
Re today's article about fry ups, here is a photo of the contents of a typical fry up that I treat myself to on some Saturday evenings.
1 I have a 2:1 from Edinburgh
2 I am 45, and in very good nick
3 It is washed down with lashings of Erdinger
4 You will be pleased to know that I fry the bread and eggs in olive oil, and grill the English sausages, bacon and tomatoes
Did you not write recently that your doctor warned you about your own diet?
Should you wish to have your own fry up, here's a list of the basic ingredients (per person):
1 Spuds for the chips
2 4 large English sausages
3 4 rashers of back bacon (smoked)
4 2-3 large tomatoes
5 2 slices of white bread for frying
6 3-4 eggs
7 2 slices of buttered white bread
Additional ingredients, if you are peckish, can include; mushrooms, beans, lamb's kidneys and black pudding.
Accompany your fry up with a well chilled supply of Erdinger, and plenty of salt.
