This week I am in a frenzy preparing my annual Thanskgiving feast, so it was a natural choice to talk about food for our conversation this week!
Specifically, we used a website called BudgetBytes to find ideas for cooking and eating on a budget.
Learners can check out an activity in the style of the First Certificate about cooking courses to check your comprehension!
For original version listening, check out an episode from the fantastic podcast Gastropod, such as Tea Time: Pirates, Polyphenols, and a Proper Cuppa or Inside the Food Lab with Kenji López-Alt
Learners can try reading an article about traditional British baking or about the future of food and the onset of 3D food printing.
For original version, you can explore the resources of the website we used in class, BudgetBytes. Their starter guide has tons of info about how to meal plan and organize your pantry to save money in the kitchen.
This week for writing, you have a few different options. Firstly, you could write out a recipe! Remember to use a wide range of verbs (for instance, instead of cut onions, perhaps use chop, dice, or slice).
Another option would be to write an essay about kitchen basics. What do you think are the most important equipment and tools for a well-equipped kitchen?
