Oxford English Dictionary- Volume 1


Today kicks off a new series:
The Oxford English Dictionary

You'll learn some quaint cultural gems
that are specific to British life,
through my mishaps & daily stumblings
here in Oxford.

There are actually so many new things I've learned...
and if you are an Aspiring Brit,
like myself,
I think you'll find it this series to be
well... brilliant!

VOLUME ONE:

A rustic meal that features local daily staples...

Local meats, hunks of cheese, fresh crusty bread,
butter & chutney for spreading,
& a nice serving of fruits & veggies.

Delicious right?


Think of it as the love child of 
a deconstructed sandwich
&
a less pretentious anti-pasti platter.


via

It's become such a pub staple, 
that you'll now even see many offerings of the assortment
assembled as a sandwich
in restaurants & cafes...

via
I'm glad to have learned a fresh alternative
to heavy pies & mash 
or greasy fish & chips!

  6. Sounds yummy! ha when I was in England the first time, I had no idea what to do for food! I eventually had to buy strawberries from the local farmers market stand.

  10. Love the ploughman's lunch - was the breakfast of choice when we were last in London! Love this new series as I'm sure you've come across lots of words that are quite puzzling...
