Happy Thanksgiving everyone! In honor of this classic American holiday of happily overeating, we focused our conversation this week on food, cooking, and all things related to your kitchens and diets.
And speaking of cooking, I would love to do a Christmas Cookie Activity in December. If anyone knows of an affordale kitchen to rent (or maybe a merendero?) we would need an oven and a big table to decorate cookies. Get in touch if you have any ideas!
This week, learners can try listening to an easy apple pie recipe, lasagna recipe, dinner recipes, or breakfast recipes.
For original version try the Freakonomics episode Food + Science = Victory! or check out some podcasts devoted to food and cooking: America's Test Kitchen, The Menu, The Spendid Table
Learners can read about how processed meat causes cancer, or Banana Protein May Be Virus Killer, or if Teff May be the Next Supergrain.
For original version, check out some of my favorite food blogs and websites: Smitten Kitchen, Serious Eats and NYT Cooking.
Or check out the fascinating National Geographic site Future of Food.
You've got a couple of options this week. You could write out a recipe of one of your specialty dishes (watch your vocab! Use words like slice, dice, shop rather than cut.)
Or you could try writing a letter of complaint about a bad restaurant experience.
