1. Now let’s talk about the food. What can you tell me about eating habits in Belarus?

Well… We don’t live on an isolated island. Many people from far away countries come to our country every day. Some of them decide to settle here and they enrich our culture by familiarising us with their own eating habits. Maybe a few centuries ago our ancestors had some peculiar eating habits which were different from those of their neighbors. Belarussian peasants used to live on potato and other vegetables. Nowadays we have a wide range of different things to choose from. Some of my friends are crazy about foreign cuisines for instance Italian or Chinese. People are not in favour of eating traditional dishes of our country any more. Thus I fail to give you a straight answer to your question.

2.Do you personally follow the rules of a healthy way of life? Why (not)?

At least I try to do so. Unfortunately from time to time I am not strong enough to resist a temptation to eat something flavored with some unusual spices. Rarely do things like that do any good to the stomach but you know many teenagers are willing to do something which may give them a thrill. Of course I detest fast food and fizzy drinks but as I told you before I have a weakness for natural spices like cinnamon, ginger and cloves. I hope my overusing them will not have a long term effect on my health.  I don’t smoke cigarettes. I don’t have strong drinks, either. In other respects, my way of life is as healthy as it could be.

3.What questions will you ask a British friend about their national cuisine?

Do you really like fish and chips? Have you ever gone to foreign restaurants and cafes? What do British teenagers have for breakfast?

4.What national dishes can you recommend a tourist to taste in Belarus?

As you know the potato is cooked in various ways in Belarus. You can boil, fry or bake it. Moreover, it is the main ingredient of most dishes of Belarussian cuisine. You can find it in every recipe even in salads. My favourite one is with potatoes, mushrooms, oil, vinegar salt and pepper. The fist two ingredients are to boil and chop and the rest is to add later.

5.Scientists say that fast food is unhealthy but teenagers can’t stop eating it. What do you think about it?

Teenagers are usually healthy and full of energy. We often think that we will always be healthy and consequently we don’t care about our health. We are perfectly aware that something is dangerous but we do believe that we will never face any health problems. Maybe that girl, not me is not an explanation but a feeble excuse which  surprisingly most of my peers find rather convincing. As for me I am not that careless. I avoid consuming fast food as it may lead to further problems in later life.

Дополнительные вопросы к Let’s talk about Belarussian national cuisine

Do you like cooking? Do you know many recipes?

To my mind, cooking is like magic. You take some simple ingredients. Perform some actions, either following a recipe or trusting your intuition, add various flavourings to make your meal special. You may cook the same dish twice but with some inspiration and desire you may create two different dishes.

What questions will you ask a friend who has invited you to a pot-luck party?

1.What dish you are going to cook? Why?
2. What dish should I cook?
3. How many people are going to come?

Do you invite guests to have meal together?

Why not? Of course having something to eat is not the main reason for inviting a friend. We meet with friends and talk about the things we like together. Refreshing drinks and nourishing food help to make our meetings longer and more enjoyable. Home made food is of higher quality than that you may order in a cafe so washing the dishes doesn’t seem to be a problem after all.

Which cafes would you recommend in your town?

Even in a small town where I live there are different kinds of cafes. Some of them are national as they serve only national meals. If you are curious by nature, you may choose between a vietnamese cafe or a chinese one. If you want to eat Belarussian traditional food you may find cafes which specialise in it. Funny chicken is ,as its name suggests , a fast food restaurant. It is not my favourite, but tastes differ. Apart from the ones mentioned earlier there are a lot of conventional cafes. They have no specialties. They are alike and serve common meals at request.

Очевидно, что данный билет будет проще отвечать учащимся по сравнению с другими вариациями данной темы, так как fast food более чем подробно изучается в 9 классе.
