Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

There is nothing wrong with British beef
That's what my wife told me once when I said I was a tad concerned with MCD. Coming from a vegetarian, it meant that the bad press England got because of MCD really must have hurt the pride of everybody here. What she said that day is now my motto everytime I want to eat beef in this country. Since there is nothing wrong with it, I might as well have some. Sometimes she regrets saying that to me. Anyway, my wife is in Windsor for a dinner with her friend tonight, so I decided to go in a pub for a pint and a burger. I love burgers. The Duke of Cambridge didn't seem to have their kitchen open, so I went to the Cross Keys, where there was a barbecue and some...burgers. I had it with a side salad (there was no chips). There was no French mustard, but some nice HP sauce, tabasco sauce and a tiny bit of ketchup did the trick and gave the burger some flavour. Anyway, there is nothing wrong with British beef indeed. Especially with a nice pint of real ale.
