Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Fascinating work! It teaches us a lot. Two remarks:

There is no French family. Is it not to makes the others jealous? ;-)

The British are the only one who don't mention a warm course among their favourites.

See?  Everyone notices different things.

The Japanese family didn't mention a warm course either, but sashimi is a main dish.

That's interesting but it's probably not wise to assume generality.

I don't know anyone in the area who wouldn't eat a hot course at least once and possibly three times a day.

Avoiding hot food would be odd in this part of the world, especially during the nine months of the year when it's not warm outside.
