The end of the British Breakfast?

The Times of London covers some of the controversy surrounding a revision of breakfast offerings at the UK’s highway eateries. The revision is organized by Heston Blumenthal, legendary British molecular gastronomist, which would be like handing Wylie Dufresne the job of remaking the menu at Dennys. Apparently, The Times doesn’t seem too sad to see the giant breakfast go.

“The fried English breakfast was conceived during the Industrial Revolution (probably) as a form of fast fuel for a working class that actually worked. They ate 3,000 calories in the morning, then they burnt 3,000 calories by lunchtime. Or died when the mine collapsed.”
