    compare to/with

    Describe Czech breakfast and compare it to British breakfast. => is "to" correct in the sentence? I'd rather use "with" here... What do you think?

    By the way, is the sentence below correct or should I omit the articles?
    Describe the French cuisine and compare it to (with) the British cuisine.

    What about this sentence? Is it correct?
    "Compare British and French cuisine."

    Re: compare to/with

    You can say "compare it to" or "compare it with," at least in American English. They both sound fine.

    Your other example is also fine.
