How Much Do You Know about Food?
Make a survey on peoples knowledge about food
and diet. The questionnaire is ready on page 2,
and you are required to do it in pairs. Make up
a dialogue, with one acting as the interviewer
and the other as the interviewee. Do it with a
reference to the example in your material.
Make a survey on peoples knowledge about food
and diet. (The questionnaire is ready on page 2,
and do it in pairs. Make up a dialogue, with one
acting as the interviewer and the other as the
interviewee. You may begin like
this) Interviewer Good morning,
Sir(Madam/Miss). I am a student from the
University of Petroleum. I am now conducting a
survey on peoples knowledge about food and diet.
Would you like to do me a favor and answer some
questions? (I wonder if I can ask you several
questions.) Interviewee My pleasure/Of
course/Ok/Sorry, I.
Interviewer My question is very easy. As we all
know, the food we eat can offer us a lot of
energy. Which food do you know gives us the
energy the most rapidly, cereal, meat, or fruit
and vegetable? Cereal refers to grain, such as
wheat, corn, rice and so on. Interviewee As far
as I am concerned, I think meat gives us the
energy the most rapidly, because usually people
who like to eat meat appear to be
strong. Interviewer Meat. Thank you. And my
second question is
(After your interview, organize a brief report
like this) Interviewer I interviewed five
people, and among them, one got 8 correct
answers, two got 6, one got 5 and still one got
only 3. From these we can see that most people
just have some idea about what to eat to keep
healthy, and they need to enlarge their minds.
Talking about Chinese food, it is
popularly recognized that Chinese cuisine is
world-famous for its perfect combination of
color, aroma, taste and appearance. Chinas
unique culinary art owes itself to the countrys
long history, vast territory and hospitable
tradition. Chinese cuisine gives emphasis to the
selection of raw materials, the texture of food,
the blending of seasonings, slicing techniques,
the perfect timing of cooking and the art of
laying out the food on the plate.
Among the best-known schools of Chinese culinary
tradition are the Cantonese cuisine of the south,
the Shandong cuisine of the north, the Huai-Yang
cuisine of the east and the Sichuan cuisine of
the west. These four major varieties of Chinese
food have been traditionally noted as the light
flavor of the south, the salty flavor of the
north, the sweet flavor of the east and the
spicy-hot flavor of the west.

Make an introduction of the typical food of your
Ex.1 Cooking Style in China
Directions China is famous for various food.
Work in groups to discuss what kind of cooking
styles we have in China and their characteristics.
Words and Expressions cuisine (n.??,???)
light  ( a.???,????) heavy  (a.????)
spicy (a.??,????) Cantonese  (a.???)
speciality (n.???,??) roast suckling pig (???)
roast Beijing duck (????) hot  (a.???,??)
chilli (n???) feature (n.??,??)
oily ( a.????,???) greasy (a.???)
Cooking has occupied a lofty position in
Chinese culture throughout history. The great
Chinese philosopher Lao Zi once said of the
art Governing a great nation is much like
cooking a small fish. Its divided into eight
big cuisines, or say, eight styles, such as
Cantonese food, Beijing food, Sichuan food, etc.
Cantonese food is lighter while Beijing food
is heavy and spicy. Most Sichuan dishes are spicy
and hot. Guangdong food is a bit light, while
Sichuan food has a strong and hot taste, and
Shanghai food is oily.
Chinese food can be roughly divided into
the Northern and Southern styles of cooking. In
general, Northern dishes are relatively oily,
and the use of vinegar and garlic tends to be
quite popular. Wheat, processed into pasta, also
plays an important role in Northern cooking
noodles, ravioli-like dumplings, steamed,
stuffed buns, fried mea dumplings, and steamed
bread are just a few of the many flour- based
treats enjoyed in the North of China. The best
known Regional variations of Northern Chinese
cuisine include those of Beijing, Tianjin, and
Representative of the Southern cooking
styles are Szechwan and Hunan cuisine, famous
for their liberal use of chili peppers. Within
the whole of Southern cooking, the Jiangsu and
Zhejiang regions emphasize freshness and
tenderness, while Guangdong cuisine tends to be
somewhat sweet and always full of variety. Rice
and its bi-products, including noodles, cakes,
and congee form the typical foundation for
Southern dishes.

Customs on Invitations in Britain In Britain
it is common to be invited to someones home
rather than to a restaurant. If you are invited
to a restaurant it is because your host is very
busy, cant cook very well, or wants to give you
the enjoyment of some special type of food, or
perhaps, has often invited you home and now wants
to give you a special treat.  Presents If you
are invited to someones home to have a meal it
is usual to take some flowers or a box of
chocolates. It is not usual to take a bottle of
wine unless you know your host well. Although
flowers and chocolates are quite acceptable it
would be very nice if you could take something
from your country. It is different if you are
invited to a party, and it also depends on what
kind of party it is. Many parties these days are
bring a bottleparties. Unless your host is very
rich then a bottle of wine is always welcome if
it is a big party of say 30 or more people. Ask
whether or not you should bring a bottle when you
are invited if you arent sure. Say something
like, Can I bring a bottle? And your host will
tell you what to do.
Dress If you arent sure what you should wear
then ask your host or your friends. Usually dress
is informal and individual in Britain for parties
and for invitations to dinner in peoples homes.
If you are going to an expensive restaurant the
men may have to wear a jacket and tie, jeans
wouldnt be allowed. Punctuality If you are
invited to dinner at someones home you shouldn't
arrive earlier than the time given and you
shouldn't arrive more than about 15 minutes late.
If you are going to be late telephone and let
your host know so that the meal can be delayed.
Dinner is usually served between 8 pm and 9 pm.
Very often guests are invited to arrive earlier
than this so that they can have a drink and be
introduced to the other guests. Introducing
yourself If you are at a party you can go to
another person and introduce your self. Hello,
my name is. . . Are you a friend of. . . ?You
dont have to wait to be introduced. And, by the
way, at
parties we assume that everyone will talk to a
lot of people. It is quite normal for someone to
have a short conversation with you and then go on
to talk to other people. Dont think they dislike
you or that they are impolite.It is the custom at
many parties in Britain, particularly where
people are standing up rather than sitting down.
Here are two ways of finishing a conversation at
a party Excuse me. I think Ill go and get
another drink. See you later, perhaps? Oh,
excuse me. Ive just seen Mary Jennings over
there. Ive got to discuss a meeting we are
having on Thursday. Would you excuse me for a
moment? How long should you stay? Watch other
guests. But if you are the only guest leave
before midnight if it is a weekday evening and if
you or your host must work the next day. If the
conversation is really full of life at midnight
and you would like to stay longer say, What time
do you usually go to bed? And then your host can
say whether they would like to finish the
evening. Bigger parties are usually held at
weekend and often go on until 2 am or even later.
In class Discussion Comparing Diets
Look at the diet on P177, It shows what a
10-year-old British boy eats on a typical
day. Work in pairs to decide whether this is a
healthy diet. What do you think a 10-year-old
boy in China would eat on a typical day? What is
the difference between the two diets.
  • This is not a healthy diet. First, he eats too
    much. Second, he has too much sugar, which may
    change into fat and accumulate in the body.
  • Diet of a 10-year-old Chinese boy on a typical
  • Breakfast an egg,
  • a piece of bread,
  • a cup of milk
  • Lunch rice, fish or meat,
  • vegetables
  • Supper rice, fish or meat,
  • vegetable , soup
  • 3. The British boys eats a wider variety of

Imagine that you are going to invite
several classmates to celebrate your birthday at

Part 2 Listen and Answer
Directions Listen to the recording and
answer the following questions.
  • Whats the main feature of the new method of
    paying for meals?
  • Instead of paying one fee to cover all meals
    for the whole school year, students are now able
    to choose how many meals a week they want and can
    contract just for that amount.
  • 2. When do the students pay for the meals they
    contract for?
  • They have to pay the whole year at the

Part 2 Listen and Answer
3. How does the new plan benefit the students who
eat all their meals at the school
cafeteria? Its better for them too because
the more meals they contract for, the
cheaper each one is. 4. How can weekend guests
eat in the cafeteria? They can buy single
meals on a walk-in basis on Saturdays and

Part 2 Listen and Answer
M Hey Linda, did you get that letter about the
new options for food service next year? W Not
yet. Are there a lot of changes? M There sure
are. Instead of paying one fee to cover
all meals for the whole school year, we
are now be able to choose how many meals a
week we want and can contract just for
that amount. We still have to pay the whole
year at the beginning, but we can choose to
buy seven, ten, fourteen or twenty-one
meals per week. They give you a card with
the number of meals you get for a week
marked on it.

Part 2 Listen and Answer
W Thats a big change Tom. And a complicated
system. M Yeah. But it will be much better for
people who dont eat three meals a day,
seven days a week in the cafeteria because
they dont have to pay meals they dont
eat. W So whats the deal for those who do eat
at school all the time? M Its better for
them too. Because the more meals you
contract for, the cheaper each one is. W I
see. It still sounds rather complicated.

Part 2 Listen and Answer
M True. It took me several hours to figure it
out. I decided to go with the ten-meal
plan. W Why is that? M Well, I never eat
breakfast and I often go away on weekends.
So the ten-meal plan gives me lunch and
dinner every weekday at a fairly low price.
And I wont be paying for meals I dont
usually eat. W And what about the weekends
when you are on campus?.

Part 2 Listen and Answer
M Well, there are often guests on campus at
weekends. So they allow you to buy single
meals on a walk-in basis on Saturdays and
Sundays. The price per meal is much higher
that way. But I am away so much that it will
still be less money for me to pay single
prices on the weekends rather than sign up
for the fourteen-meal a week plan. W Oh, I guess
Ill have to sit down and figure out my
eating pattern so I can get the best deal.

culture has important (2) _________ and customs
related to it. Since long ago, according to their

______________ A variety of these choices are
rapidly increasing today because of the fast pace
of modern life.
Eating away from home in restaurants, inns, or
hotels has long been an option in most cultures.
The biggest recent change in eating habits and
food-related lifestyles is the advent of fast
_______________________________This permits many
people to eat conveniently away from home, or to
bring food home to eat without having to prepare
it. But nutritionists have been warning that the
typical fast-food diet is unhealthy if eaten too
often. Now restaurants provide healthier options
for their customers along with the traditional
food. (10)_________________________

Most people believe that this trend of
healthier eating will continue.

Food Preferences A Reflection of Culture
  • Different people have different favorite food
    items, and the reasons are various.
  • For instance, the northerners enjoy noodles,
    steamed rolls, jiaozi, pancakes while the
    southerners prefer rice. People in the east
    prefer seafood while those in the west find beef
    and lamb a favorite. People in Sichuan, Hunan and
    Hubei provinces are fond of food that taste hot
    and spicy while people in Zhejiang and Guangdong
    provinces prefer food that taste a bit sweet. We
    may attribute these differences to peoples
    taste, the availability of food, cuisines /
    cooking skills, beliefs about food nutrition,
    economic conditions, weather, and geographical
    conditions of the regions, etc.
