Aside from vegetarians and animal activists having a bone to pick with your utensils, from where is your "English 'China'" plate? We sometimes use China plates over here... made in China (as BOIkat says, they're not common for outdoor use).Fozzer wrote:Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding, with loads of different Vegetables, Mashed and Roast Potatoes, and lashings of Onion + Herbs and Spices Gravy for me! All served on a hot, English China plate, with a proper bone-handled Knife and Fork! (Fork in the left hand, Knife in the right hand...and the meal is eaten with the left hand, not shovelled in with the right hand!).
Original Native Mexican Styles may not incorporate utensils which, my dear fellow, was an original Anglo-Saxon English method. Also, just like you speed your vehicle down the left side of the road, we travel down the right side -- the left seems quite sinister.Fozzer wrote:It seems as though the early North American Settlers abandoned their British Style of Cooking, and adopted the Mexican Styles instead!

I did so a few times after returning to NH in the latter 1990s. On a rare occasion, when working as night manager at a motel @ 1½ miles from here (during the time I 1st visited this forum), I ordered something from the attached restaurant. That was @ a decade ago and more. Most of my youth was on a small New England farm and I was bused to and from school; except on trips for special events, sometimes after watching a show at bygone outdoor theaters, food was served at home.Fozzer wrote:I cannot remember that last time I had, and paid for, a meal in a restaurant
Thanks for the link -- something I didn't know about. Mom had some dishware from England but I've forgotten the name... believe it started with the letter B.Fozzer wrote:English China Clay for my fine dining porcelain ...>>> http://www.cornwalls.co.uk
Here you must realize something: unless they're recent immigrants from England, the accent is different, although some New Englanders' enunciate similarly. However, although well comprehensible, a Virginian's diction is not so similar (at least not those I've met). Since North America was not England, English colonists/ immigrants had to adapt to the environment. Even before the American Revolution (Rebellion on your historical charts), came the effects of other ethnic groups. My Anglo-Saxon ancestors jumped the wall into Scotland after the Normans took over England; they joined with clan Donald but we have our own sept Hudson tartan. My Mom's clan wasn't always on good terms with clan Donald (some formerly Donald islands were bequeathed them) but were Scotsmen, nevertheless, before they ever migrated across the Atlantic. Many Hessian, Brunswickan and other Germans in the British ranks remained after the Revolution, adding to those already here. New York was originally New Amsterdam -- and the Dutch colonists weren't all forced to evacuate. So -- the influence of the non-English and the limited native English supplies and wares caused culinary changes, as well (thus 'English' muffins -- but American English Colonial muffins would be a mouthful).Fozzer wrote:..@H...I wonder how many of the New England, Virginia, etc, immigrant folks still enjoy fine Old English Cooking?
