Sunday roast – not bigger than a meal

The family Sunday lunch was as traditional as going to work in a bowler hat. But today the tradition is on the wane. The Future Foundation and the Institute for Social and Economic Research for Gallo Family Vineyards say that that just over six million Britons now regularly sit down to Sunday lunch whereas in 1961 this number was nearly 13 million.

But the decline is not only the result of people being too busy with work 24/7. The research also reveals that many people change Sunday to Friday night as the new time when families indulge in an uninterrupted get-together over a meal.

My recent Sunday lunch literally turned to interviewing my British friend Chris, a city worker,  about the respecting the tradition in his family and about changes that busy life brings to this respect.
