Yyyou,
I buy them almost weekly, they make excellent currywurst.
You actually buy them:???:;)

Well there’s a first ladies and gents.
 
The equivalent foods in Britain were salmon (Scotland and northern England) and Oysters (London and the south east). Gamekeepers in Teesdale had it written into their contracts that they wouldn't have to eat salmon more than five times a week.
I heard about salmon! Unbelievable nowadays. I read that in Britain, mackerel wasn't considered a fish fit to to eat.

Farm Foods don't sell bratties so I'm hardly going to find them in their bins am I. :roll:

When I were a lad the regular Sunday meat was beef or lamb. It was only at Christmas that we had a chicken as it was too expensive to eat on a regular basis.
Sunday was usually beef or lamb but we often had pheasant, duck or rabbit as dad worked on a farm.

Food snobbery and ignorance. Very English. We eat more pork loin than we breed. The rest goes to Europe.

Europe reciprocates: We get their pricey, dull pork loin.

They feast on the more flavoursome cuts.

If it was a flavours competition, we'd be runners up.

could that be the reason there is no equivalent phrase for "bon appetit" in English?

But there is an equivalent: 'Madam dishes up, then wrings her hands, looks up to the ceiling and says, 'I do hope it's alright'

We do not eat rabbit in the UK even though its plentiful. On the continent its normal.
