50 of the World’s Best Breakfasts
This is dated Aug 28, 2011. The link in the OP is dated Oct 11, 2011
The link from August credits the photos and you can link to back stories and the blogger contacted each photographer to let them know of the use of the photos
I intended to post on the October link and call that person a plagerer and thief ... and on a site called "Design You Trust". I wouldn't trust that business on bit. However, they'd probably delete it. Instead I intend to notify whoever hosts that site and let them know about this. Will also contact the August site to let them know about this.Anything else that can be done? Any agency to contact?
In addition to finding the original site, huiray did some excellent sluething about the background to some of the photos which weren't even shot in the countries they propose to represent
Very cool. My challenge is to give tomorrow's duck hash more eye appeal. It gets crispy skin and a sunny side up on top, maybe a few mandarin orange segments and cherries?
The Bahamas breakfast at the very end looked like something I'd be all over..
Jumbo prawns over grits..sweet..
The first responder here in this thread (lemons) I think is perhaps a little too kind regarding the accuracy of the article.
One ought to read the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 7th and 8th comments in that article - and the responses* to those comments. Really, please do.
My eyebrows were falling off when I viewed the selections and the ridiculous or nonsensical accompanying blurb and/or claims for the b'fast featured for India, China, Malaysia, Thailand and to a slightly (but just slightly) lesser extent Vietnam, Philippines, Japan...essentially all the Asian countries. One might argue that the author just intended to show pretty pictures - but in that case, the ones for those countries look ugly, to me anyway, and not at all pretty.
Even the "American" breakfast is a somewhat 'specific' breakfast, IMO.
Also, mostly (by far) Western Hemisphere countries - not surprising, I suppose. Ugg, all that bread, bread, and more bread...and variations thereof.
Even the Wikipedia article on breakfasts is far more representative and more accurate of breakfasts in countries and regions around the world. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breakfast I think folks should look at the Wiki article at the least before they jump to the wrong conclusions about what awaits you for breakfast in those - and other - countries.
* although noodles in soup is a common b'fast (but of course certainly not the only one) in various places in the Far East.
Well, even if it is stolen from another site, I think this is interesting in the discussions it generated about breakfasts around the world.
As a Polish-American, let me assure you salad never touches a breakfast plate. I mean, seriously ... lettuce during those cold, cold, Polish winters? And Romaine lettuce at that.
As an American-American ... muesli ... seriously? Never heard of it until two years ago. I guess they meant oatmeal or other cold cereal. These days it could just as well be a pastry from Starbucks or fast food sandwich. But I guess they mean great breakfast in each country ... still .. then some sort of hash brown or fried potato would need to be included.
Also, are you Alaskans really eating reindeer with you eggs daily?
Speaking of unknown food, there were lots of foods I learned about that I never saw mentioned before
- Halim (supposedly Iran ... add supposedly to the rest of this list)
- Baghir (Morocco)
- Oladi (Russia ... seriously ... Russia is Poland's "neighbor". Never heard of it)
- Pogácsa (Hungary ... well, MAYBE I recall a mention)
- Waakye (Ghana)
- Katogo (Uganda)
- Mangu (Dominican Republic)
