American Woman Divides The UK With Her Attempt At A Roast Dinner

American Woman Divides The UK With Her Attempt At A Roast Dinner

Having a roast on a Sunday is quintessentially British, but one woman over in the US decided to have a go at the traditional dinner and she's divided the internet in the process.

Megan Torres-York, 36, from New Jersey joined a Facebook group for family dinner hacks and, after seeing English parents posting pics of their roasts, felt inspired to take a stab at it.

What could go wrong?

Megan, a data analyst, said: "I kept seeing these roast dinners on the group and couldn't believe how giant the meals were.

"Us Americans are supposed to be known for being large, but I had never seen a meal bigger than the roast dinner.

"I made a schedule and wrote the recipes out because the whole process seemed to need a full day's work to get it ready."

And she certainly gave it her best efforts, cooking up a roast chicken and potatoes, parsnips and carrots, Yorkshire puddings and, of course, gravy.

But while her husband Matthew, 37, and 12-year-old daughter, Charlie, loved the meal and even asked for it again the following week, there was one component in particular Brits had an issue with... broccoli cheese.

Okay, in her defense she did add cauliflower to the mix too, which you could argue is a Tier 2 side dish of a classic roast.

She said: "We don't really eat cauliflower cheese here, but broccoli and cheese are a thing so I went with that, I was of course apologetic to the commenters for adding that to the roast.

"Don't get me wrong, it was all good spirited comments, it wasn't mean, but I quickly learnt what not to do."

Here at LADbible we're giving her an A+ for effort - all the right components are there and that chicken looks top notch.

She added: "I knew it wouldn't be perfect but I figured it can't be too hard so woke up and cracked on with it.

"The one thing I couldn't get was swede, I looked everywhere but for some reason it's hard to get in the US."

Again, swede is a Tier 2 at best.

Despite the fact that she had the roasties, another thing UK commenters decided to focus on was a lack of mashed potatoes. Eh?

Megan continued: "The biggest lesson I learnt was to never skip mashed potatoes because everyone was shocked that I didn't have that included, but it's an awful lot of carbs.

Megan also said that she couldn't understand how people have the time to make a roast every week... with plenty of practice, Megan, with plenty of practice.

She said: "The comments kept flowing and not everyone was very impressed, but everyone seemed to appreciate the effort I had gone to and gave me tips on how to make a better one next time.

"I'm going to give it another go in a few weeks, but next time I think I'll try roast beef."
