Breakfast of gentlemen
Someone asked me the other day ‘What do gentleman eat for breakfast? Surely it’s not Scotch.’ The answer is no, it’s not Scotch. But it can be.
A gentleman’s breakfast is not a definite recipe. One might have english muffins with jam one morning and the next morning they might have marmalade. Diversity at it’s best.
Accompanying the main breakfast should be a nice tea. Tea being one of the only nonalcoholic drinks permissible for a gentleman to drink.
In general terms, food is a good breakfast for a gentlemen but it’s not a necessary. For instance you might have a smoke (pipe, cigarette or cigar) with a black coffee, the only permissible type of coffee a gentleman may consume.
Or one might have a double Scotch and a quick 9 holes for breakfast. Variety is the spice of life.
Talking about spice, a nice vindaloo is a good pick-me-up after a night of merriment.
So there you have it.
