The English usually have 4 meals a day: breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner. Breakfast can be a full English breakfast of cornflakes with milk and sugar, or bacon and eggs, toast and marmalade, tea or coffee.
At midday everything is stopped for tea. Most offices and small shops are closed for an hour. The English like what they call good plain food. They must be able to recognize what they are eating. Usually they like steak, roast beef, Yorkshire pudding and fish and chips.
Afternoon tea is taken at about 5 oclock, but it can hardly be called a meal. It is a cup of tea and cake or biscuits. At the weekends afternoon tea is a special occasion. Friends and visitors are often invited to have a chat over a cup of tea.
Dinner is the most substantial meal of the day. It usually eaten at 7 oclock. The first course may be soup (though the English dont like it very much). The main course will often be fish or meat, perhaps the traditional roast beef of old England, and a lot of vegetables. The next course will be something sweet and often cooked, such as fruit pie. Last of all there may be cheese, often with biscuits.
It is common knowledge that the English are very fond of tea. They like to have a nice cup of tea 6 or 8 times a day, sometimes even more.
Russian people have 4 meals a day too. Traditional Russian foods are pelmeni and pancakes.
The Russian often have a nice meal on Sunday, with all their family, grandparents, grandchildren, and so on. The meal can go on for long time, maybe three, four hours.
As for me I prefer Russian food, because English food isnt tasty.
