... For example a "Ploughman's lunch" (a sandwich with cheese, salad, mayo, pickle). I am a bit curious to know if something like this exists in other languages.
It said ENGLISH lunch. Not AMERICAN lunch
Ploughmans lunch is an English lunch designed by the cheese marketing board. But as a ploughman can be from any country it doesn't answer the question "What is an English lunch"?!
It could be anything really. A Sunday lunch is served in many pubs and comprises of roast meat, usually chicken or beef, with boiled potatoes, roast potatoes, cabbage, carrots, peas, mashed turnip or swede, etc, all covered in gravy. Mmmmm......
What is an English lunch??? I am English and never heard of this!
