food: July 2011 Archives

275x250.jpgUnadventurous Brits refuse to eat local cuisine and rarely leave their holiday complex when going abroad, it's been revealed.

Despite jetting off to far-flung destinations, four in 10 people admit they only travel abroad for the sunshine.

A third say they prefer to stick with English food such as fish and chips than try anything more exciting from local menus.

And 47% even claim they would rather eat in well-known burger and fast-food restaurants than sampling some of the more exotic delicacies.

In fact, 22% won’t eat at restaurants which don’t have English speaking staff… though 'steak and chips' is understood pretty much around the world.

A team of 10 people spent 13 hours just cooking the meat for this gargantuan burger which was flipped every hour and produced at the Alameda County Fair.

The meat-feast surpassed the previous record of 590lbs and was topped off with a 110lb bun, 20lbs of onions, 12lbs of pickles and 30lbs of lettuce.

Organisers say the whopper contained around 1,375,000 calories -- almost enough to feed one person for two years -- and bits of it were sold off to raise money for charity.
