You could be eligible to claim compensation with injury lawyers in Little Walshingham
Little Walshingham is a village in Norfolk. If you are planning to travel to the area for a Christmas meal, before you go, you might want to think about what other people eat to celebrate Christmas. The food varies from country to country but also from culture to culture and changes as time goes by.
In Spain, a soup of chicken stock, vegetables and pasta is often eaten on Christmas Day. In France, a late supper named le reveillon, is enjoyed after Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. It varies according to different regions, so for instance in Alsace, goose is the main course whereas in Burgundy, it is turkey with chestnuts. Meanwhile, the Parisians often tuck into oysters and pate de foie gras. In Roman Catholic countries, fish is often eaten on the holy fasting day of Christmas Eve.
On Christmas Day, stuffed baked carp in a rich sauce is sometimes eaten in the Czech Republic. Pickled fish is scoffed in Poland while eels and squids are quickly polished off in some Italian towns. The Swedes go their own way and have a dish called Lutefish which has been soaked for days in lye. Apparently, the water softens the tissues by dissolving its proteins.
Consommé of elephant
Sometimes, we simply have to eat what is available. In Paris during the Prussian siege of 1870, the zoo and sewers provided the Christmas dinner at Voisins, a fashionable restaurant of the time. The menu consisted of consommé of elephant, braised kangaroo, antelope pate and a whole cat garnished with rats. These days, far into southern Africa, the local harvest of mopane worms is enjoyed. These are the fat, spiny mottled caterpillars of the emperor moth. Research shows that the worms compare favourably with meat and fish for levels of protein, fat, vitamins and calories.
It is hoped that your Christmas meal out is a delicious success.
