The Guardian’s Word of Mouth blog is incredulous of the rise of the English breakfast in New York, as reported in the magazine this week by Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld. Word of Mouth assumes that New Yorkers skip the toast and make the entire experience practically carb-free — and delusional: “The nation that convinced itself that Bernie Madoff should be put in charge of money, that George W Bush was an acceptable choice for leader and that Gordon Ramsay was worth importing, pumping full of wrinkle-busting collagen and putting on their TVs has severed the final link with reality and managed to reposition the fry-up as a diet food.”
